These soon-to-be physicians, who graduate next month, vied for highly competitive residency positions that included anesthesiology, dermatology, urology, orthopaedic surgery, psychiatry, interventional radiology, ophthalmology as well as other specialties.

It is the culmination of an exciting and sometimes nail-biting time of year that tantalizes fourth-year medical students with dreams of residency programs and future careers.
