SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A group of medical students from the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine will learn where they will do their residency training.

The 59 students will join their colleagues at medical schools across the country on Friday for what is known as “Match Day.”

Each student will be called on and handed an envelope. Inside will be the name of the residency training program they have been matched with. Medical students nationwide apply for residencies based on their own interests, but acceptance into their preferred program is not guaranteed.

This is considered a crucial step for the soon-to-be doctors. It marks the transition from eight years of college and medical school to a lifetime of perfecting a medical specialty.
