Match Day Week has come and gone, and medical students across the country have learned if they've matched, and where, for residency training. Here's a look back at some tweets from the week.
Some tweeted about the lead up to Match Day...
Some offered sage advice...
To the 4th year Med students moving thru the emotional roller coaster of #Match2019, know that we want you practicing medicine w/ us. So do the patients you’ll be responsible for! Believe me, they don’t care about any of this, they just want you to care about them!#MATCHDAY2019— Mark Shapiro MD (@ETSshow) March 11, 2019
Congratulations to all the fourth-year medical students on #MatchDay2019. Our nation relies on you to promote the health and protect the dignity of our people, particularly the most vulnerable in our midst. Yours is a vocation of the heart, the mind, and the soul. We need you!— Christopher J. Hale (@chrisjollyhale) March 15, 2019
Happy #match2019 everyone!! Enjoy your day no matter what number in your list you ranked. I was disappointed when I matched @PSU_Surgery little did I know then it was the perfect place for me to thrive. Remember residency is what you make of it. Congratulations #surgmatch— Madeline Torres (@MadelineBTorres) March 15, 2019
Surgery-bound MS4s stressed out by the coming #Match week:— Jeff Matthews MD (@JBMatthews) March 10, 2019
Whether you get your 1st choice or your 20th, you will look back and be thrilled at your good fortune to match at what’ll turn out to be the best residency in the country.
Great programs are everywhere!! #MatchDay2019
Some reminded students to keep things in perspective...
One of the things I think we need more of on #matchday is an honest conversation about how people do get suboptimal results and it’s ok to feel less-than-great about your match and it’s not all rosy and happy.— Scott Olehnik (@solehnik) March 15, 2019
#MatchDay reminder: Over the next few weeks don’t forget to reach back out to those who have helped you in the past (med school rec writers, undergrad mentors, fav HS teacher) and update them on your next step! We want to know and our continued support could be helpful! #meded— Amanda C. Itliong (@MIShouldTalk) March 15, 2019
And of course, some celebrated!
A majority female surgery intern class. Be still my heart. It’s possible. 🙌🙌🙌 https://t.co/rBdj9jPP6M— Esther Choo MD MPH 🙋🏻♀️ (@choo_ek) March 15, 2019
All the #MatchDay2019 posts are such an inspiration! Can’t wait to see where I’ll be in 4 years. Congrats to everyone who #matched, everyone who persevered through SOAP. Those who didn’t match the system has failed you. Know you are worthy and will be an amazing doctor someday.— Emma B, MD to be! (@emmab_md) March 16, 2019
I just want to hit ❤️ on as many #MatchDay2019 posts as I can find.— Pietro Bortoletto, MD (@BortolettoMD) March 11, 2019
Congrats to all of you!
