Sam Berding (DO ’22) 
Match Day 2022

March 24, 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.

Sam Berding (DO ’22)Where did you match?

I matched at Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, Georgia.

What specialty have you chosen to pursue and why?

I have chosen to pursue general surgery because surgeons are privileged with a unique opportunity to care for patients at some of their most vulnerable times and practice a wide variety of medicine.

How did you feel when you found out you matched?

I was beyond thrilled to say the least. Northeast Georgia Medical Center was my number one choice because of the phenomenal training environment, high level of resident autonomy and residency culture.

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

I would say the best piece of advice I have is to follow your passion and the rest will fall into place. Try not to get discouraged by less than ideal grades or test scores, just keep working hard!
