Match Day

Every year on Match Day, thousands of medical students find out where they will continue their medical training as residents. The U.S. spends billions each year on those residencies, so why aren't we getting the doctors we need where we need them?


Guests: Candice Chen, MD, MPH, Associate Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at George Washington University

Ted Epperly, MD, President and CEO of the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho

Atul Grover, MD, PhD, Executive Vice President of the Association of American Medical Colleges
