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.
