I Still Get Butterflies on Match Day

March 24, 2014

I am on the teaching staff at the John Peter Smith Hospital Family Medicine Residency in Fort Worth. The editor of the Primary Care Progress blog asked me and some other faculty and residents across the country to write about the match process. The “match” is the system where we rank all of the medical students we want as residents in order, they do the same for their residency preferences, and a computer sorts it all out.

To summarize, this is my 21st match as a faculty and the day we find out who our new interns will be this summer is still exciting. It hasn’t worn off. We put so much time and resources into recruiting season. It feels great when we are able to attract great interns. It makes my day job so much easier when I get to supervise solid residents.

We did very well in the match again. I can’t wait to meet all of our new people this June.  Here is the link to the full article: http://primarycareprogress.org/blogs/16/355.

    I remember my match day back in March 1992. I had interviewed at several different programs but really want to go to the Port Arthur’s St Mary’s program. I did get accepted and was it a mistake. I transferred to another program at the beginning of my second year and it was not much better.
