Results For Applicants

The 2019 APPCN Match

Release Date

APPCN Match result information will be available at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 4, 2019.


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

  • The Match result obtained by each individual applicant.
  • For unmatched applicants - a list of positions that remain available after the Match. Programs with available positions will be able to access a list of applicants who certified a Rank Order List but did not obtain a position.
  • Summary statistics of the results of the APPCN Match for applicants and programs.


E-mail: Match result notification e-mails will be sent in the morning of March 4, 2019 with the intention of having all e-mails sent by 11:00 a.m. ET. Results will be sent by e-mail to applicants that participated in the APPCN Match (i.e., certified a Rank Order List and did not withdraw). Due to unreliable e-mail exchanges and inbound servers, we cannot guarantee a delivery time for the e-mails.

Web: Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 4, 2019, each registered applicant and program can log in to the NMS Match System to access their personal Match result online.

If you match to a position, you should contact the program to acknowledge your Match result as soon as possible after 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 4, 2019. Program Directors must send letters of confirmation of the Match result to matched applicants, according to the APPCN Match Policies.

Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result on March 4, 2019, failure to receive your result on that day does not affect your obligation to the program to which you are matched.

Post-Match Process

Following release of the results, applicants who are not matched and are seeking available positions are permitted to seek and fill positions that remain available independently of the 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 ET on March 4, 2019. 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 ET on March 4, 2019. 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 ET on March 4, 2019.
