Permian Basin med students participate in Match Day

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Just as basketball fans wait every year for the excitement and upsets of March Madness, medical students feel the same with Match Day.

Match Day is nerve-wracking everywhere. 24 Texas Tech medical students learned where they will be spending their residencies.

The students location is sealed inside an envelope, then they are opened simultaneously.

We caught up with a few students right after they found out where they'll spend the next three to seven years.

"Today I found out I'm going to South Western in Dallas, it was my top choice so I'm excited and I'm excited to go Dallas," Jarrod Tunnell said.

Med students across the nation have been participating in match day since 1952.
