Students and residency programs pair off on Match Day 2016.

More Alpert Medical School students than ever—a total of 113—learned on March 18 where they will enter residency training. Of the record-breaking class, at least 10 will stay within the Brown fold with residencies at affiliated hospitals in Rhode Island. Another 38 are sticking around New England in Boston, New Haven, and elsewhere.

We spoke to a dozen or so graduating students about how they arrived at this day—their passions, their personal lives, and the paths they’ve set themselves on. Match Day is the culmination of all of that preparation; the destination listed within the red envelope is where they are committed, no backing out, no decisions to make. Judging by the smiles and whoops of joy, most seemed satisfied with that destiny.
