Each year, graduating medical students anxiously wait to see where residency will take them for the next three to eight years. Match Day is a national day of anticipation and excitement for thousands who have worked hard to get to this point in their medical practice journey.
This year, 203 students from the Long School of Medicine were matched to 85 residency programs across the nation. They were also part of something special, as 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the school.
Ninety-four of those matched will stay in Texas, with the majority, 37, remaining in San Antonio, and 23 heading to Houston. The others are scattered between Dallas, Austin, Amarillo, Tyler and Temple.
Students not staying in Texas will venture out to 30 other states across the U.S., from California to New York and everywhere in between.
