Match Day 2022
Students from the class of 2022 are celebrating the next step in their professional
journey. Here they share what has inspired them along the way and what advice they
would give to new students.
Where did you match?
Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Caroline.
What specialty did you match into and why did you choose this?
Pathology. I plan to complete a fellowship in forensic pathology.
How did you feel when you found out you had matched?
I'm relieved and ecstatic. I've matched into an amazing program and I'm heading to
a city my family is excited to live in.
What advice would you give to a first year medical student starting their journey?
Don't stress about boards or about what specialty you might want to go into starting
on day one. Get through your classes and join clubs to explore what you might be interested
in. You'll gear up for boards in second year and you'll learn more about what you
like on rotations in third year.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
Don't doubt yourself. Have some faith in your abilities. Surround yourself with supportive
people and make time for mental breaks and some fun. You need that time to recharge.
Also, stay in touch with someone a year ahead of you who is going into a specialty
you think you may be interested in. You'll have some insight on the general processes
and can ask more specific questions.
