After Phase II: Participate in the Post-Match Process
Following release of the Phase II Match results, applicants who are not matched and are seeking available positions are permitted to seek and fill positions that remain available independent of the Match. NMS is not involved in the filling of positions during the Post-Match Process.
Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on April 12, 2018, registered applicants who did not obtain a position in either Phase of the Match will be able to access a list of programs with positions available after Phase II. Programs will be able to update information on the list so that applicants seeking positions during the Post-Match Process can obtain up-to-date information on the availability of positions. Programs will also have access to a list of unmatched applicants.
Applicants participating in the Post-Match Process will be able to prepare applications in PhORCAS beginning on April 12, 2018 and submit applications to programs with available positions beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on April 13, 2018.
