  • Content

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

    • The Match result obtained by each individual applicant
    • For unmatched applicants - a list of programs with positions that remain available. 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 Match for applicants and programs.
  • Distribution

    E-mail: Match result notification e-mails will be sent to all programs and applicants that submitted Rank Order Lists. The e-mails are sent in the morning of April 8, 2020 with the intention of having all e-mails sent by 12:00 p.m. noon ET. 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 April 8, 2020.

    The same Match result information will be provided by e-mail and online. Any applicant who does not receive their result by e-mail should access their result online.

    Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result expeditiously, failure to receive your result in a timely manner does not affect your obligation to the program where you are matched.
