As far as subjects of interest to medical students go, Match moves the meter more than most. In 2017, AMA Wire® offered several articles on the topic, including an examination of how new technology may affect applications and interviews, accounts from residents about how med students can best approach the Match process and the courses of action that might allow medical students who don’t match to continue to pursue a career in medicine. 

Here’s a look at our most read and most relevant articles on Match from the past year.

But he knows how stressful it is, not because of the process of submitting a rank list, but because of the emotions and the churning thoughts leading up to Match Day. He has several pieces of advice for students about to go through Match ranking. The first is probably what most medical students would like to hear: Follow your heart.
