2016 Match Moments Video Challenge

2016 Match Moments Video Challenge

Match Day for the 2016 R-1 Main Residency Match will take place on March 2, 2016. For medical students, R-1 Match Day is the culmination of years of hard work and the start of a new phase in an exciting and rewarding career in medicine.

Success on Match Day means different things to different people, and the Match Moments Video Challenge is a chance for students to celebrate this milestone and everything it means by recording and sharing their unique “match moment” with the world.

Oh, and did we mention there are prizes? The top three videos, as chosen by the public, will win a cash prize!
