2017 Match Day

Match Day for the class of 2017 will be held on Friday, March 17 in the Van Nuys Medical Science Atrium on the IU School of Medicine Campus.

IU School of Medicine students will join medical students from across the nation to open their envelopes with details provided by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) at precisely noon, EST to determine where they will spend the next chapter of their lives in medicine.

We look forward to hosting families and students from across the state to celebrate and showcase the IU School of Medicine, Indianapolis Campus.
