Joint Match Week Celebration Trended on Twitter!
April 7, 2016
This year, the NRMP teamed up with the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) for an online Match Week campaign. Promoting the hashtag #Match2016, the organizations encouraged applicants, medical schools, and residency programs to post celebratory images and quotes. We also encouraged physicians to share advice and photos from their own Match Day using #MatchThrowback.
On Friday of Match Week, students and schools shared Match Day ceremony photos and videos, and programs welcomed their new residents. The joint campaign was so successful that #Match2016 was the top trend on Twitter by the close of Match Day!
