Content

When the results of the APPCN Match are released, the following information will be available:

  • Each applicant will have access to information on whether or not they have been matched to a position.
  • Matched applicants will be told the specific program to which they matched.
  • Unmatched applicants will have access to a list of programs with positions that remain available. Programs with available positions will also be able to access information on applicants who certified a Rank Order List but did not obtain a position, or who withdrew but indicated they are still seeking a position.
  • Summary statistics of the results of the APPCN Match will be posted publicly.

Distribution

Email: Match result notification emails will be sent in the morning of February 16, 2022 with the intention of having all emails sent by 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Results will be sent by email to applicants that participated in the APPCN Match (i.e., certified a Rank Order List and did not withdraw). Due to inconsistent message handling by inbound email servers, we cannot guarantee a delivery time for the emails.

Web: Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on February 16, 2022, each registered applicant and program can log into the NMS Match System to access their personal Match result online.

The same Match result information will be provided by email and online. If you do not receive your result by email, you should access your result online. Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result on February 16, 2022, failure to receive your result on that day does not affect your obligation to the program to which you are matched.

If you match to a position, it is recommended that you and the residency contact each other to acknowledge the Match result as soon as possible after 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on February 16, 2022. Program Directors must send letters of confirmation of the APPCN Match result to matched applicants, according to the APPCN Match Policies.


Post-Match Process

Following release of the results, applicants who are not matched are permitted to seek and fill positions that remain available independently of the APPCN Match. No action to seek or fill positions remaining unfilled from the APPCN Match is to be taken prior to 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on February 16, 2022. NMS is not involved in the filling of positions during the Post-Match Process.

A List of Programs with Available Positions will be provided in the NMS Match System beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on February 16, 2022. Information on this list may be updated by Program Directors. Unmatched applicants seeking positions that remain available should contact programs directly.

Programs will also have access to information on unmatched applicants beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on February 16, 2022. To assist programs in identifying applicants who may be interested in their available postion(s), the information provided on each unmatched applicant will include the type(s) of programs (adult, pediatric, lifespan) which the applicant indicated they would be interested in if they remained unmatched.
