Medical Students Celebrate Match Day at Neyland Stadium

Each year, nationwide, medical students find out which residency program they have been selected to through the National Resident Matching Program on what is known as "Match Day." Many schools hold a Match Day celebration where students open letters at a designated time. On March 21, several UT College of Medicine students who rotated at the UT Graduate School of Medicine chose to celebrate Match Day in Knoxville, which was held at Neyland Stadium for the second year in a row. At 1 p.m., students ran to the 50-yard-line of the stadium where they received their Match letters from Missy Maples, Student Affairs Coordinator. See the 2014 Match Day photos via Flickr.
