UTCOM Students Celebrate Match Day at Neyland Stadium

Match Day was held Friday, March 15, and Missy Maples, Student Affairs Coordinator, hosted a Match Day celebration at Neyland Stadium on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus for University of Tennessee College of Medicine students who wanted to open their Match results among friends and family in the Knoxville area.

At 1 p.m., eight students ran to the 50-yard line, found their envelopes, which were placed in the shape of a "T", and tore them open. Among the students who participated in Knoxville, four of them matched to a UT Graduate School of Medicine program. In July, UTGSM will welcome its new residents, all of whom matched through the NRMP Match. This is the first time in more than 20 years that all residency positions in Knoxville filled through the Match. Look in the next issue of The Scope to see who will begin a UTGSM residency program in July and to see more photos from Match Day.

Knoxville Match Day students matching to UT Graduate School of Medicine programs are

Jennifer Winbigler: Internal Medicine
Rupert Stanborough: Transitional Year followed by Radiology
John Prenshaw: Transitional Year
Taylor Wright: Family Medicine

Participating students who matched outside of Knoxville are

Andy Harris: Orthopedics, Rhode Island Hospital/Brown University
