Match Day

Vital Signs » Summer 2012

On March 16, 95 graduating Boonshoft School of Medicine students joined medical students nationwide to learn where they will pursue residency training.

Gathered with family, friends, and other supporters in the Student Union Apollo Room on the Wright State campus, the students took part in a national event that has become a rite of passage for those on the brink of becoming physicians.

Wright State students matched in outstanding programs in Dayton, throughout Ohio, and across the country, including Case Western Reserve, the Cleveland Clinic, Stanford University, and the University of Chicago Medical Center. Fifty-three percent of Wright State’s graduates chose to enter a primary care field.
