Graduating students from the UW School of Medicine joined their peers across the U.S. in the annual rite of the National Residency Matching Program.

Graduating medical students around the country discovered today, March 17,  where they’ll spend the next three to seven years as residents.

It’s a scene straight out of Harry Potter: Nervous students await their fate during an annual ritual.

On Match Day 2016, Friday, March 18, graduating medical students across the nation will simultaneously learn where they will be receiving their residency training.

The phrase ‘finding a match’ typically evokes the complicated world of dating. For graduating medical students across the country, matching means building a career and finding an academic home in a residency training program.

Sixty percent of the 2015 University of Washington School of Medicine graduating class will enter primary- care residencies this fall.

It was a whirlwind of celebration and tears, most of them joyous.
