New doctors tend to practice in states where they conduct their residency specialty training. Where will this year’s graduating USF Health medical students do their residencies?

Find out Friday, March 21, at 2014 Match Day, when the 125 senior medical students from USF, joined by family and friends, pack into Skipper’s Smokehouse, where the students’ residency assignments will be announced beginning at Noon.

Before the students start unsealing their match letters, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor will visit USF’s Match Day to give the latest news on her work to improve funding for graduate medical education and help the future physician workforce.   She will be joined at 11:40 a.m. by Dr. Harry van Loveren, interim dean of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, and graduating USF medical student Alicia Billington, a leading national student advocate for graduate medical education.
