Match Day for UI med students


IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Fourth year medical students across the nation took a major step forward Thursday.  At 11:00 a.m. central time, they received residency assignments as part of Match Day.

129 University of Iowa students found out where they will go.  Among this year's graduating class, 40 will stay in Iowa for their first year of postgraduate training.  27 of those will train next year at UI Hospitals and Clinics.

"Every year, there's pretty much the same number of positions but more and more students that are competing for those positions," College of Medicine Registrar Damien Ihrig said.
