The rising number of COVID-19 cases in the United States has prompted some medical schools to cancel their traditional Match Day celebrations or livestream their events.

Restrictions on large group gatherings have forced a number of medical schools to alter their Match Day plans. For example, Brown University, Columbia University, Stanford University, and the University of Washington had announced their intentions to cancel their celebrations. Meanwhile, Harvard Medical School announced it will hold it’s celebration virtually this year.

Other schools will continue to hold their celebrations but will keep group sizes small by prohibiting student’s friends and families from attending or breaking up the students into smaller groups.
