HSC’s Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine to celebrate Match Day for Class of 2023

Match DayMore than 200 medical students from the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine at The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth will gather at the Dickies Arena Pavilion on Friday to open their match letters and find out their residency placement for the next three to seven years.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a presentation of awards, and then the traditional countdown to the opening of match letters will start at 10 a.m.

Known as Match Day, the event centers around the moment when graduating medical students discover where they will serve their residencies, a three- to seven-year period of hands-on training in their chosen field of medicine.

The moment marks one of the biggest milestones on the long and challenging journey to becoming a licensed physician. Friends, families and partners are often in attendance to cheer on their loved ones as they discover what the future has in store.

Students submit a ranked list of their preferred residency programs to the National Resident Matching Program, which, using a Nobel Prize-winning algorithm, makes the assignments based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted of those is student preference.

Over the last five years, TCOM has had a placement rate of 98% of its students matching into a variety of specialties. For the past five years, about 60% of TCOM students match into the highest in-demand specialties throughout primary care.

Primary care specialties include internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology. In 2022, U.S News & World Report ranked TCOM as the top osteopathic medical school in the nation for primary care.
