Applicants can no longer register to participate in the Match for residency positions beginning in 2014.
American Society of Health-System Pharmacists
I plan to apply for a postgraduate year one (PGY1) or postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency position to start between June 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014. In order to participate in the ASHP Resident Matching Program (the “Match”), I agree:
I understand that I am free to make personal contacts with any participating program in which I am interested, to apply to as many of these programs as I wish, and to rank them according to my judgement.
I understand that I must not communicate my ranking intentions to any program, and must not request that a program inform me as to how it intends to rank any applicant. I understand further that participating programs must not communicate their ranking intentions to me and must not request that I state how I intend to rank any program. Any statement or other expression concerning how I intend to rank a program or how any program intends to rank me is a violation of the ASHP Match Rules, and in any event is subject to change based on further considerations.
For the purposes of the Match, my Rank Order List is to be the sole determinant of my order of preference for the programs to which I have applied. Similarly, for the purposes of the Match, the Rank Order List submitted by each program is to be the sole determinant of the program's order of preference for the applicants to the program.
I understand and agree that information concerning my participation in the Match, including my Match result, may be provided to me electronically.
I understand that the result I obtain in the Match, whether I am matched or not and to which residency program I have been matched, may be reported to my school, to programs participating in the Match, and to others, either by mail or electronically.
I understand that my appointment to the program with which I am matched may be contingent on my satisfying eligibility requirements specified by the organization and program.
I understand that the ASHP possesses beneficiary standing to enforce this Agreement, and violations of the terms of this Agreement or the ASHP Match Rules will be reported to the ASHP. I understand that if I violate any of the terms of this Agreement or the ASHP Match Rules, such as refusing to accept a position at the program with which I have been matched, the ASHP may pursue all available remedies, including reporting my actions to my school. Furthermore, the ASHP may impose penalties on me, including barring me from participation in future ASHP Resident Matching Programs.
Applicants who are interested in applying to programs during the post-Match period will be able to send applications to programs that have positions available after the Match using the Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS). The PhORCAS system will open for the post-Match period on March 21, 2014.
If you previously registered for the 2014 Match and are not matched to a position, you will be able to use the PhORCAS system to send applications to programs with available positions.
If you did not previously pay the Match registration fee and you are interested in applying for pharmacy residency programs participating in the post-Match process, you will have to pay the Match registration fee through the PhORCAS system before you can submit your applications using PhORCAS. The Match registration fee is $125. The registration fee is non-refundable and is not transferable to future Matches or other applicants.
Only applicants who paid the Match registration fee through the PhORCAS system and are not matched to a position will be able to send applications to programs using PhORCAS during the post-Match period.
The PhORCAS/Match portal will open on March 21, 2014 for applicants to prepare and send applications to programs that have positions available after the Match. Access to the portal will be provided from this web page when the PhORCAS systems opens.
