The country's future doctors had a life-changing moment Thursday.
Sixty-five graduating East Carolina University medical students got their matches-- which means they found out where they'll be doing their residencies. U.S. medical school graduates normally complete a three- to seven-year residency program accredited in a recognized medical specialty.
Some will be going to cities such as New Orleans, San Francisco, and Indianapolis, and some will be staying in Greenville.
Thirty-one of the students who received their matches will be staying in North Carolina, and fifteen of those will train ECU.
