Good luck on Match Day!

Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match…

In this case, the matchmaker is the National Residency Matching Program. Match Day ceremonies at medical schools across the country begin at noon today.

Last year, exactly half of the 246 graduating students from Louisiana State University’s medical schools in New Orleans and Shreveport stayed in Louisiana, according to a 2008 article from the Times-Picayune.

Good luck to all our medical students, we hope you get your first choice! Whether you do or don’t, you may want to pick up the book Match Day: Young Doctors in Hell for what is in store for you.
