A group of LSU medical students now know where they will be doing their residency.
Friday is Match Day where senior medical students learn where they will pursue their graduate medical education as a result of matching through the National Resident Matching Program.
This morning a special ceremony was held at the BRI Atrium at LSU Health Center.
Each senior came forward one by one, opened a sealed envelope and announced the residency program in front of faculty, fellow classmates and their families.
At least 75 percent of medical students at LSU Health Shreveport match in one of their top three choices. Many hope to stay in Louisiana and enter into primary care fields.
After four years of medical school, these students will graduate in May to enter residency programs July 1 ranging from three to seven years.
