Fourth-year DO students from Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic
Medicine gathered at SweetWater brewery to celebrate their residency matches.
Close to 100 exuberant fourth-year Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) students from Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM) gathered at SweetWater brewery in Atlanta on Saturday to toast each other and to
celebrate their residency matches. The Military Match, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Intern/Resident
Registration Program, and the National Resident Matching Program, collectively called
the “Match,” are complete and students have learned where they will be spending their
next several years as residents honing their skills.
Graduates have matched to a myriad of programs in a wide variety of specialties. Some
of the class of 2018 members will be represented at Georgia residency programs including
WellStar Graduate Medical Education Residency at Kennestone in Marietta, Georgia South
Family Medicine Residency at Colquitt Regional Medical Center in Moultrie, Mercer
University in Macon, Houston Healthcare Residency program in Warner Robins, Medical
College of Georgia in Augusta and Redmond Regional Medical Center in Rome.
The Match Day event was spearheaded by DO Class Chair Alexander Navone (DO ’18) along
with a committee of class leaders and with support from PCOM’s Office of Institutional
Advancement. A photo booth, slideshow, brews and barbecue were all featured at the
event as well as hugs, handshakes and video greetings from faculty members.
With commencement set for May 24, the occasion provided an opportunity for GA-PCOM
students to reminisce about medical school and celebrate the future prior to beginning
the next phase of their respective careers.
