After the grind of medical school comes the joyous day when doctors-to-be find out where they will complete their training. That day was Friday. 

Florida International University had a lot to celebrate: Every student in its first-ever medical-school graduating class made a match, and the good news for patients is that more than half the 33 graduates plan to go into primary care and one-third will stay in Florida for their training, the Miami Herald reports. 

Meanwhile, at the University of Central Florida, only two students out of 35 weren’t matched with a residency program, the Orlando Sentinel reports. All 127 students at the University of Florida were matched, the Gainesville Sun reports.
