Finding the perfect match
Glasses of champagne were handed out before students lined up to collect the envelopes -- colored green for St. Patrick's Day -- that held the anticipated news of where students will do residency training. "We know that each and every one of you will bloom where you are planted," Stritch School of Medicine Dean Linda Brubaker, MD, told students. "Today is a day of opportunity. You don't know what the future days are going to hold." Thirty-nine percent of the students are going into primary care residencies, up from 33% in 2011.
