Information on positions that remain available and summary statistics for applicants and programs will also be available.
Obtaining Positions Available After Each Phase of the Match
After Phase I: Phase II of the Match
Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 13, 2020 a list of programs participating in Phase II of the Match will be available on this web site. This list will include programs that had unfilled positions from Phase I of the Match, as well as any programs that are added to the Match after Phase I.
Applicants who are eligible to participate in Phase II will be able to access PhORCAS to prepare applications for Phase II beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on March 13, 2020 and to submit applications to programs participating in Phase II beginning at 9:00 a.m. ET on March 17, 2020.
All applicants seeking positions after Phase I and all programs with available positions after Phase I 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: The Post-Match Process
Following release of the Phase II Match results, applicants who are not matched and are seeking available positions are permitted to seek and fill positions that remain available independently 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 8, 2020, 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 be able to update information on the list so that applicants seeking positions during the Post-Match Process can obtain up-to-date information on the availability of positions. Programs will also have access to a list of applicants who certified a Rank Order List but did not obtain a position.
Applicants participating in the Post-Match Process will be able to prepare applications in PhORCAS beginning on April 8, 2020 and submit applications to programs with available positions beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on April 9, 2020.
The recommended date for programs with available positions to begin making offers to applicants during the Post-Match Process is April 15, 2020.
