Envelopes, please

Anticipation filled the air at the University of Minnesota’s McNamara Alumni Center on March 17. It was Match Day, a day that signified for medical students many years of hard work, determination, and life change.

Of the 224 students who matched, 99 will join residency programs in Minnesota. Nearly half (48.2 percent) matched to primary care residencies; in fact, the three most popular specialties were internal medicine (20.2 percent), family medicine (18.8 percent), and pediatrics (7.6 percent), followed by emergency medicine, psychiatry, anesthesiology, and surgery.
