Graduating Medical Students at Charles R. Drew University Celebrate A Highly Successful Match Day
2016 Percentage of CDU Residency Matches in Primary Care Continue to Increase and Commit to Serving the Los Angeles Community

On March 18, 2016, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science celebrated one of the most anticipated days of the school year. Match Day is an annual rite of passage for medical students, a day where four years of hard work transformed into a new opportunity when they learn at which residency programs they will train for the next three to seven years.

Eighteen overly anxious students sat with family, faculty, friends and loved ones to open their official Match Day envelope to determine the next chapter of their careers.
