Sam Berding (DO ’22) March 24, 2022
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?
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!
