Applications are not processed by NMS. Programs that participate in the Match use the Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS) to review applications. Applicants must be registered for the Match in order to be able to send applications to programs using PhORCAS.
ASHP and the Match maintain separate directories that applicants may consult when searching for programs of interest. The two directories serve different purposes. To minimize confusion for applicants, it is advisable to ensure the information provided in each directory (e.g., residency and program name) is consistent.
