On March 16, 213 graduating University of Minnesota Medical School students each opened a small envelope containing big news: the site of their residencies.

Here are some highlights of this year’s Match Day, a national rite of passage that happens at the same time at medical schools across the country:

  • 97 graduating University of Minnesota Medical School students matched to 12 locations across the state.

  • 41 students will stay at the University of Minnesota for their residencies.

  • 38 students matched in family medicine and another 36 matched in internal medicine.

  • 22 students — about 10 percent of the graduating class — will complete residencies in emergency medicine.
