‘Match Day’ at Penn State College of Medicine

On Thursday, fourth-year medical school students across the country found out where they would complete their residencies. Those students are placed by a non-profit entity called the National Resident Matching Program. Almost 15,000 applicants were considered for residency positions in this application cycle.

Penn State Live reported:

This year, 106 College of Medicine students participated in the national match ceremony. Twenty-one of these students were accepted into the College of Medicine’s various residency programs and will remain at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. In total, 90 medical students nationwide were matched today to the 20 accredited specialty residency programs at the College of Medicine and Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

The video below is of the reception the College of Medicine held so that all the fourth-year students could open their envelopes together. It’s worth watching about 30 seconds of just to see the excitement.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
