When the results of each Phase of the Match are released, the following information will be available to residencies:
- A report of the Match results for your program(s). You will be told which applicant(s) matched to your residency, and whether or not the residency has any unfilled positions.
- For programs with available positions - information on applicants who participated in the Match but were not matched to a position. Unmatched applicants will also be able to access a list of programs with available positions.
- Summary statistics of the results of the Match for applicants and programs.
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 the Match Results Release Date for each Phase of the Match with the intention of having all e-mails sent by 10:00 a.m. ET. Due to unreliable e-mail exchanges and inbound servers, we cannot guarantee a delivery time for the e-mails.
Web: Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on the Match Results Release Date for each Phase of the Match, each registered applicant and residency can log in to the NMS Match System to access their personal Match result online.
The same Match result information will be provided by e-mail and in the NMS Match System for each Phase of the Match. Any residency that does not receive its result by e-mail should access their result from the NMS Match System.
Filling Available Positions After Each Phase of the Match
After Phase I: Participate in Phase II of the Match
Programs with unfilled positions in Phase I of the Match will offer those positions to unmatched applicants in Phase II of the Match. New programs or positions that receive funding after Phase I of the Match may also be added into Phase II of the Match.
All programs with available positions after Phase I and all applicants seeking positions after Phase I must submit their Rank Order Lists by the Rank Order List deadline for Phase II of the Match. A second match will be carried out using those Rank Order Lists, and the results of Phase II of the Match will then be distributed.
After Phase II: Participate in the Post-Match Process
Following release of the Phase II Match results, programs with unfilled positions are permitted to seek and fill their positions that remain available independent of the Match. NMS is not involved in the filling of positions during the Post-Match Process.
Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on April 12, 2018, registered applicants who did not obtain a position in either Phase of the Match will be able to access a list of programs with positions available after Phase II. Programs will also have access to a list of unmatched applicants.
Applicants participating in the Post-Match Process will be able to prepare applications in PhORCAS beginning on April 12, 2018 and submit applications to programs with available positions beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on April 13, 2018.
The recommended date for programs with available positions to begin making offers to applicants during the Post-Match Process is April 19, 2018.
Programs will be able to update information on the list of available positions until May 31, so that applicants seeking positions during the Post-Match Process can obtain up-to-date information on the availability of positions.
