The 2017 Match

On Friday, March 17, medical students around the country opened their Match envelopes to find out where they would spend the next phase of their career: residency. Pritzker students gathered in the P-117 auditorium for a celebratory ceremony, and at 11:01 am CDT, the hall filled with the sounds of envelopes being ripped open—followed by a chorus of cheers. The most popular specialties chosen this year by Pritzker students were Internal Medicine (19), Pediatrics and Pediatric-related specialties (10), Emergency Medicine and Anesthesiology (8 each), Psychiatry (5), and General Surgery and Otolaryngology (4 each).
