Match Day

Probably one of many VMS II’s favorite days thus far at VMS, Match Day is when the fourth year med students find out where they’re matching for residency. Vanderbilt is of course special, so we do this differently from all other schools—it’s a huge ceremony, where fourth year students’ names are called randomly, and they open their match results letter for the first time in front of all their classmates, families, and the entire VMS (plus, each student must put money in a fishbowl, and the last student calls wins the money!). Everyone is extremely supportive and proud of each other, so it’s an amazingly joyous time!
