Friday was a highly anticipated day for medical students across the country. Match Day is an annual, nationwide day when medical students are matched with a residency program. Students will spend the next five to seven years of their medical training where they are matched. 42 Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine students received a match. "I feel very excited, a little bit anxious, but mostly excited," said student Leon Tjahjono, just before finding out his match.
