Match Day takes on 80s theme at Charleston Music Hall

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – After four years of late nights and rigorous tests, students at the Medical University of South Carolina donned their most glamorous 80s wear and met at Charleston Music Hall to tell everyone where they were spending their residencies.

More than 150 students participated in Match Day this year.

As the future doctors and researchers opened their envelopes to see where they would spend the next few years of their lives, balloons dropped from overhead and hits from the 1980s played.

Michael Youssef, donning his best Michael Jackson outfit, found out he was heading to Baylor University to continue his study in neurology.

"After that I'm going to do a fellowship, maybe stroke, maybe critical care, all options are open after residency," he said.

Youssef is one of the 161 fourth year students who started interviewing with residency programs in the fall. Last month, they submitted their preferences and the schools submitted their priorities for the enrolling students.

That's how Youssef ended up at Baylor. He said after visiting the campus and meeting with officials there, he knew it was a great fit for him.

"The program here at MUSC is outstanding, but I can't wait for this next chapter in my life," he said.
