Results For Programs

The 2019 APPCN Match

Match Results

Program Directors must log in to the NMS Match System to access their Match result.

Log In to the NMS Match System

  • Match Result Information Available in the NMS Match System
    • A downloadable PDF report which shows the applicants matched to your program(s), the number of positions offered and filled, and the results obtained by applicants ranked by your program(s). If your residency site offered more than one program in the Match, the results for all programs are available in a single report accessible from the Program Dashboard of any program that participated in the Match.
    • A list of applicants who certified a Rank Order List but were not matched to a position. This information is provided for the use of programs with available positions. The list can be filtered by location of residence.

You should contact the applicant(s) matched to your residency site as soon as possible after 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 4, 2019 to acknowledge the Match results. In addition, you must document your agreement with each matched applicant in a letter to the applicant postmarked no later than 72 hours following receipt of the Match results.

Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result on the Match Results Release Date, failure to receive your result on that day does not affect your obligation to the applicants matched to your residency site.


Post-Match Process

No action to fill positions remaining unfilled after the Match is to be taken prior to 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 4, 2019. When the results are released, programs with unfilled positions are permitted to seek applicants and fill positions that remain available independently of the Match. Prior to making offers to fill available positions, you must verify that the applicants have not previously been matched to other residency programs nor accepted other offers. NMS is not involved in the filling of positions during the Post-Match Process.

Programs will have access to information on unmatched applicants in the NMS Match System. A List of Programs with Available Positions will also be provided to applicants. Programs that participated in the Match will be able to log in to the NMS Match System to update information shown on the list, including contact information and the number of positions available in each program (see instructions below).

  • Instructions for Updating the List of Programs with Available Positions

    Programs must log in to the NMS Match System in order to update their contact information or the number of positions shown on the List of Programs with Available Positions.

    Initially, only programs that were left with unfilled positions and did not indicate that they wanted to be excluded will be shown on the list. All programs that were active in the Match are able to update their information on available positions. Programs that did not register, or that registered but withdrew from the Match, are not able to update their information.

    • Updating Contact Information: Changes to contact information are made in the Profile section of the NMS Match System. Contact changes will apply only to the List of Programs with Available Positions, and will not be reflected permanently in NMS records. Permanent changes to contact information after the Rank Order List deadline must be submitted to NMS in writing, not through the NMS Match System.

    • Updating the Number of Available Positions: Changes to the number of Post-Match positions available can be changed from the Program Dashboard. Programs can be added to the List by setting the number of available positions to a number greater than zero, or removed from the List by setting the number of available positions to zero.

    The system will close for updates on April 30, 2019.
