GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — It was an important day for new doctors and graduates of Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine.

The new doctors found out where they will serve their residencies at an event at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Envelopes were placed in front of each graduate with their destination within it, determined by a computer.

“We will have people crying with happiness, we will have tears of joy, we will have tears of sorrow,” said Angela Thompson-Busch with the MSU College of Human Medicine. “But at the end of the day, they’re all doctors. They are all getting a contract to be a physician and it always seems to work itself out.”

MSU also held envelope days at their campuses in East Lansing and Flint.
