Match Day Madness 2012

Story Date: Fri, 16 Mar 2012 10:30:00 EDT

Forget basketball brackets—March Madness at EVMS is all about Match Day 2012.

Match Day, March 16, was the day senior medical students learned where they will complete their training after medical school. Students across the country tore into their envelopes at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to find out their matches, but none were as stylish as EVMS.

In true “I love the '90s” fashion, Ninja Turtles took the stage with boy bands, "Bay Watch" lifeguards and Vanilla Ice. Wrestling giants Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, threw down their championship belts and were joined in celebration by the Addams Family and Men In Black.

Residency encompasses three (or more) years of training that are required before medical school graduates can become practicing physicians.
