Rebecca Heffner (DO ’22) 
Match Day 2022


March 23, 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.

Rebecca Heffner (DO ’22)Where did you match?

AdventHealth Emergency Medicine - Orlando, Florida

What specialty have you chosen to pursue and why?

Emergency Medicine – I enjoy shift work and not having a set schedule when I go into work. I enjoy how unpredictable the ER is and how you are constantly seeing a diversity of pathology even within one shift. Emergency Medicine requires knowledge in multiple fields and is constantly challenging me. 

How did you feel when you found out you matched?

Amazing! AdventHealth was my #1 program, and my family is in Orlando so I was very happy to have matched there!

What advice would you give to year one medical students just starting their journey?

Everything works out in the end! You will spend so many days and nights stressing about how everything will turn out. Before you know it, you will be done, and I promise it will all work out!

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Don't let yourself get discouraged if something doesn't go exactly the way you were hoping! Your future isn't defined by one test or a rotation.
