Some 56 senior medical students at the School of Medicine took part March 19 in the annual Match Day rite of passage — a nationwide event that serves to tell upcoming graduates what residency programs they will enter following commencement on May 9. Until Match Day, senior medical students are unsure of where they will spend the next few years as residents.

Once again, Mercer Med School graduates will continue their aspirations of excelling in the medical profession at some of the premier institutions in the country.  The listing of the graduates, their program names and institutions of destination includes:
