Content

When the results are released, the following information will be available to programs:

  • A downloadable PDF report of the Match results for each program.
  • For programs with available positions - a list of applicants who participated in the APPCN Match but were not matched to a position.
  • Summary statistics of the results of the APPCN Match for applicants and residencies.

When the results are released, unmatched applicants will have access to a list of positions that remain available after the Match. Programs that participated in the Match will be able to update the information shown on this list, including contact information and the number of positions available in each program.


Distribution

E-mail: Match result notification e-mails will be sent in the morning of February 26, 2018 with the intention of having all e-mails sent by 11:00 a.m. ET. Results will be sent by email to residency sites that participated in the 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: Match result information will be available in the NMS Match System beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on February 26, 2018.

The same Match result information will be provided by e-mail and online. Any residency site that does not receive its result by e-mail should access the result online.


Post-Match Process

Following release of the results, programs with unfilled positions are permitted to seek applicants and fill positions that remain available independent of the Match. 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 beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on February 26, 2018.

A List of Programs with Available Positions will also be provided to applicants in the NMS Match System beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on February 26, 2018.

Applicants who do not obtain a position in the Match and programs with positions available after the Match are free to contact each other and to negotiate directly with each other, independent of the Match, to fill available positions. However, no action to fill positions remaining unfilled after the Match is to be taken prior to 12:00 p.m. noon ET on February 26, 2018.
