Match Day Celebrations with PCOM Georgia Students

March 22, 2024

Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) students in the Class of 2024 at PCOM Georgia have navigated a challenging journey marked by resilience and determination. From entering medical school amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, these students faced uncertainties about the unfolding years ahead. Yet, their perseverance bore fruit on March 15, 2024, as they celebrated Match Day—a pivotal moment in their medical careers.

Match Day, an annual tradition coordinated by the National Resident Matching Program, is a day filled with indescribable emotions as students anticipate learning where they will embark on the next phase of their medical journey through residency placements across the nation.

Andrea Mann, DO, FAAP, dean and chief academic officer of PCOM Georgia's osteopathic medicine program, captured the essence of the occasion: ”This is a day of ineffable emotion. In just a few minutes, you get to find out where you will be training for residency; finding out where you will further learn and perfect your craft.”

Addressing his classmates moments before the envelope-opening ceremony, Class Chair Dominick Ricci (DO '24) expressed gratitude for the shared experiences and growth they had encountered together: ”It has been the honor of a lifetime to spend these last four years with all of you, learning and growing. The people are what make this school truly great.”

Surrounded by the support of family and friends, the students eagerly awaited the revelation of their residency matches. The atmosphere filled with excitement as envelopes were opened, revealing the destinations of where they would hone their skills.
