Fifty-four graduating students from the TTUHSC School of Medicine in Amarillo will participate in the annual Match Day ceremony.

Medical students from Rockford's University of Illinois College of Medicine found out where they will be spending the next three to seven years of their medical training on Friday. Twenty-three percent matched to residencies at institutions ranked in U.S. News and World Report's latest Best Hospitals Honor Roll. Dr. Wolanskyj-Spinner, Senior Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Families, and Friends of Students says this year's 100% match rate is remarkable.

The TTUHSC students are among thousands of medical school graduates from across the country that will open envelopes simultaneously to reveal the location where they will complete their residency.
