They called themselves the “class with perfect vision.” When the Class of 2020 received their white coats four years ago, the nearly 200 Tulane University School of Medicine students couldn’t predict how different their Match Day ceremony would be.

Students, family members and friends gathered virtually for this year’s ceremony and, while it wasn’t the group event everyone had been looking forward to, there was still plenty to celebrate.

Tulane School of Medicine Class of 2020 successfully matched to 190 programs in 36 states. A total of 35 students will be staying in Louisiana for all or part of their training, and 98 students will be pursuing careers in internal medicine, pediatrics, or family medicine.
