The Match Process
Register for the Match
The Program Director of each accredited residency is sent an e-mail with a personalized link to register their residency for the 2019 Match. The registration process is completed online in the NMS Match System.
Applications and Interviews
Applications are reviewed and interviews are conducted independently of the Match. Programs use the PhORCAS service to accept and review applications. Applicants must be registered for the Match in order to send applications using PhORCAS.
Submit Your Rankings
To participate in the Match, you must submit a Rank Order List for each program offered by your residency, on which you list your desired applicants in numerical order of preference (first choice, second choice, etc.). Rank Order Lists are submitted online using the NMS Match System.
