Match maker

Terri Moncrief, her husband, Eric, and 10-week-old Christian celebrate Terri’s match to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for her residency in pediatrics. Graduating medical students in the United States learned March 16 which residency programs they will enter. This year’s class enthusiastically cheered each classmate when they read their matches. Of the 119 students in the School of Medicine’s Class of 2006, 29 will stay in St. Louis to complete their residencies at Washington University School of Medicine-affiliated hospitals. A total of 13 graduates will head to Boston for residencies at four hospitals, including Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General; eight graduates will complete residencies at hospitals in New York City; seven graduates will complete residencies in Philadelphia; 16 will head to California, and six will head to Washington state.
