This includes programs that previously filled all their positions in Phase I or through the Early Commitment Process, programs that withdrew from Phase I (possibly because funding was not assured), or newly created programs. While such programs are eligible to participate in Phase II of the Match, they will not be added initially into Phase II.

    To activate a program or residency that was not automatically made active for Phase II, you must send a request to NMS in writing, on your residency ’s letterhead, signed by the Program Director. The request must be must be received at NMS by 5:00 p.m. ET on April 5, 2018. Please note: programs added into Phase II close to the Rank Order List deadline are unlikely to be ranked by applicants.
