ECU Med students celebrate ‘Match Day’

Posted: Updated:
 Friday afternoon the auditorium at the Brody School of Medicine was standing room only as students celebrated the ‘Annual National Residency Match Day.’

Over 70 ECU medical students learned where they will be spending the next few years as doctors-in-training.

Family and friends cheered on the future doctors as personalized slides were displayed celebrating the students’ accomplishments.

Korsica Lassiter is from Scotland Neck, NC and attended Williamston High School. She learned today that she is headed to Johnson City, Tennessee for five years to complete her residency in general surgery.

“Today is the culmination of 20 something years of work, 4 years of medical school - it’s absolutely the best day to find out that you put it all together and that somewhere someone wants you to treat their patients. So – I am just so excited and happy” said Lassiter.

Before they provide direct patient care, U.S. medical school graduates normally complete a three- to seven-year residency program accredited in a recognized medical specialty. Medical students all over the country learned their destinations Friday.
