Kyla Teramoto and Yvonne Lum pose with their Match letters. Teramoto will do a transitional year in Hawaii before leaving to train in Arizona for ophthalmology. Lum was matched at University of Hawaii and will remain in Hawaii for her residency.

It’s one of the biggest events in a med student’s life:  Match Day. That’s when fourth year medical students across the country find out where they’ll spend their residencies. Last Friday, 66 graduating students from Hawai‘i’s John A. Burns School of Medicine woke up before dawn, anxiously waiting to find out where they'll start their careers. HPR’s Molly Solomon was there and has this report.
