Amarillo Medical Students Celebrate at Match Day

Amarillo Match DayFifty-four graduating students from the TTUHSC School of Medicine in Amarillo participated in the 34th annual National Residency Matching Program, also known as Match Day, on March 16 at the Amarillo Country Club. The TTUHSC students are among thousands of medical school graduates from across the country that opened envelopes simultaneously to reveal the location where they will complete their residency.

TTUHSC medical students matched in hospitals and clinics across the country in states like New York, Louisiana, South Carolina, California, Colorado and Tennessee. Of the 54 students who matched, eight will complete their residencies in the TTUHSC system, including three on the Amarillo campus in the Departments of Family Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Kristin Stutz, assistant dean of students for the School of Medicine in Amarillo, said Match Day is important for TTUHSC and the Amarillo campus because it shows the high-quality education students receive at TTUHSC is getting out to the rest of the country.

“It is always bitter-sweet for us because we spend two years training these students and getting to experience what great people they are, but we also know that we have to say goodbye and let other institutions across the country see how truly great these students are,” Stutz added.
