Match Day 2006

Our graduating class of 2006 learned the locations of their training programs on March 16 during the annual Match Day ceremony in Davidge Hall. The event, which included a post-match luncheon at the Holiday Inn, is sponsored by the Medical Alumni Association through the generosity of Morton D. Kramer, ‘55, and his late wife Carol.

This year’s class of 143 is attending programs in 24 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada. Sixty-eight graduates are planning careers in primary care and, surprisingly, eight have decided to pursue obstetrics and gynecology.

Oxana Munoz is heading to the University of Alabama for training in general surgery and urology.
