A perfect match

Nam Le celebrates the Match Day news that he will begin a plastic surgery residency at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Celebrating with him are his wife, Cyndi, and daughter, Abigail.

Nia Mitchell lifts a glass of champagne to toast her match at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver for a residency in internal medicine.

Each year on Match Day, medical students across the United States learn which residency programs they will enter. Many School of Medicine students were thrilled when they opened their envelopes to learn they’ll train at their first choice of academic health centers. Le and Mitchell are among the 109 medical students who are graduating in the Class of 2005 and will soon begin residency training.
