UVA Match Day 2011 – Another New Beginning

Today is Match Day – the day when 4th year medical students find out (yes, I know, some of the more specialized programs match a bit earlier, and a fair amount of people have a good idea already where they’re going) where they’re going to spend the next several years for their medical Residencies.

…”Traditionally UVA Residents comprise a fairly significant portion of the Charlottesville and Albemarle real estate market generally at least three bedrooms, two baths (usually) no more than 20 minutes to the UVA Medical Center – usually not too old as Medical Residents tend to be quite busy “What’s a Resident generally looking for ? … It is my bold prediction that , not this year, but next year – 2012 – that it will be common practice for medical schools to live video stream their Match Day ceremonies.

Transcript of Radio show – 27 December 2009
