What: In an emotionally-charged and highly traditional event, medical students around the country, including those at Georgetown University School of Medicine, will forever have their lives changed on Thursday.
It’s Match Day and it plays out in dramatic fashion. At Georgetown, each student’s name is called out one-by-one and each receives a single envelope containing the fate of their immediate future. Where will Georgetown students end up? How will they spend the next three to seven years—and what type of medicine will they practice? How will healthcare reform impact their future? Only time and a little envelope will tell!
When: Thursday, March 18, 2010; 11:00am – 1:00pm*
*Match letters to be handed out at noon
