Wright State University medical students are one day away from tearing open envelopes and learning their future as doctors.
It’s part of a ritual known as Match Day, which thousands of medical student have participated in each year.
It’s a ceremony where medical students across the country open an envelope and find out at once where they will spend the following years doing their residencies so they can launch their careers as doctors. The big reveal will be noon on Friday.
Leading up to the event, students ranked their top choices of hospitals and the hospitals ranked their top choices of future residents.
Then the nonprofit National Resident Matching Program gives each student their final match, which is revealed on the paper inside the envelope.
Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine has 480 M.D. students for the 2018 to 2019 school year.
