On Friday, March 11, a group of parents had the opportunity to meet with Tufts University School of Medicine faculty members and students for a tour of some of the school’s facilities on the Boston campus. After a morning of presentations and discussions with faculty members, the parents toured some of the places where their kids and other Tufts medical students receive their hands-on experience.

They heard about the current research on disorders of the nervous system by neuroscience professor, Stephen Moss, saw the laboratory work spaces of some faculty members and post-graduate students, and even saw a first year student’s cadaver in the anatomy lab at the Biomedical Research & Public Health Building. Then they trekked down to 35 Kneeland Street to check out the Clinical Skills and Simulation Center and see demonstrations of simulation equipment.

Here are some of the highlights.

Great Matchups

For all the hard work that Tufts School of Medicine students do, it all leads to today — Match Day, where they’ll find out where they’ll be spending their residencies as working doctors. It was an afternoon filled with a lot of emotion, elation, and occasionally tears.

This particular Match Day was of particular significance, as it marked President Larry Bacow’s final go-around as he leaves his post at the end of the school year. The School of Medicine bid him farewell in the form of a match letter of his own, sending him on his way to “Vacation in Hawaii.” Not a bad way to spend a “residency,” if you ask me.

Here’s some photos from the event.
