Upcoming Graduates Learn Residency Destinations

MACON — Fifty-six 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 inform upcoming medical school graduates of the residency programs they will enter upon graduation.  Until Match Day, senior medical students are unsure of where they will spend the next few years as residents.

Once again, Mercer Medical School graduates earned spots at a number of the premier institutions in the country.
