Match Day

Match'12-127

Congratulations to all of the students involved in the match, we are proud of how far all of your hard work has taken you!
Graduating students participated in Match Day this year on Friday, March 16th. The day began for most with a Match Day Breakfast hosted by the Alumni Association, followed by class activities, such as voting for class representatives, graduation speaker and taking the commemorative class photo on the steps of the school. Finally, at 12:00pm students gathered with friends and family, and the BUSM community in Hiebert Lounge to open their envelopes. Matching in 22 different specialties, the graduating class of 2012 will be participating in competitive residency programs all over the country.

BUSM Class of 2012 has a 97 Percent Match Rate, Surpasses National Rate
