The first match will be announced at 11 a.m., following a short program beginning at 10:45 a.m. The doors to the Jemison Concert Hall inside of the Alys Stephens center will open at 9:30 a.m.

Match Day is coordinated by the National Resident Matching Program, which provides an impartial venue for matching residency programs with more than 42,000 applicants—including graduates from U.S. medical schools, international medical and U.S. osteopathic schools— who compete for available positions each year.
