Spectrum News reported on the challenges facing aspiring physicians who started their medical education during a global pandemic. The story focused on the Jacobs School’s Match Day celebration last month, where students find out where they will do their medical residencies. The story quoted Ellen Lutnick of the Class of 2022, who said the pandemic created uncertainties about when important exams would be held and how, but these challenges were overcome. Neneyo Mate-Kole proudly displayed his letter showing he will start at Howard University and finish at the University of Chicago. “It’s so gratifying to see them so happy,” said Alan Lesse, senior associate dean for medical curriculum in the Jacobs School, who was briefly overcome with emotion as he spoke. “I hope all of them have as much fun as I’ve had.”
