System Access

  • Log Into the NMS Match System

    You can access the NMS Match System by selecting the Log In button in the top-right corner of the page.

    To log into the NMS Match System you will need to enter both the email address and password that were previously set up in the system (e.g., when you set up your account in the NMS Match System).

    If you have more than one track registered in CASPR, you will be presented with a list of the tracks after you log into the system. You must select a track from the list in order to reach the Dashboard page for the track.

  • Update Account Information

    You can change your email, password and security questions in the Account section. You can also add an additional track to your residency program in this section.

    Ensure your email address is correct as all CASPR communications, including your residency program's results, will be sent to that email address.

    • If you are responsible for more than one track, any changes you make to your Account information will apply to all of your tracks.
    • If you change your email or password, you will have to use the new values the next time you log into the NMS Match System.

    Changes to residency program and track information should be made in the Profile section.

  • New/Changed Program Director

    If there is a change in Program Director, the following information should be updated in the NMS Match System:

    • Account Section: Email address, password, security questions
    • Profile Section: Program Director name, phone, fax, mailing address if necessary

    If possible, you should work with the former Program Director to update this information. The former Program Director can log into the system, enter your email address and provide a temporary password for you in the Account section. You can then log in with your email address and the temporary password, and update the password and the rest of the information as required.

    If the former Program Director is not available and you do not have access to the login credentials created by the former Program Director, you must send a signed request to CASPR, on the program's letterhead, providing your email address and requesting that CASPR update the login information for your program. The letter can be sent to caspr@natmatch.com.

  • Add/Manage Users

    Program Directors can add and remove new (secondary) users who will have access to their program in the NMS Match System.

    Add Users:

    • Provide the user's name, phone number, email address, and select a permissions level.

      Permissions are assigned at the program level. Users will have the same permissions for all tracks offered by your program. The available permissions levels are:

      • Full Permissions: A Full Permissions user can view, manage, and change all program information (except for managing users). They will also be copied on relevant automated emails (e.g., confirmations, reminders, etc.) sent to the Program Director from the NMS Match System.
    • Select the Add button. This will automatically send an email to the user prompting them to create their own unique login credentials for the NMS Match System. If the user already has an account in the NMS Match System, your program will be added to their list of options when they log into their account.

    Remove User:

    If you remove a user, they will no longer have access to your program and will no longer receive any communications about your program from the NMS Match System.

    • Confirm that you want to remove the user by selecting OK.

Manage your Track(s)

After you log into the NMS Match System for a track, you are presented with a Dashboard. The Dashboard shows your track’s current status in CASPR, the number of positions being offered, and information about the track’s applications, interviews and rankings for CASPR.

Program Directors that have more than one track registered in CASPR will be presented with a list of their tracks after they log into the system. You must select one track from the list to reach the main Dashboard page for the track.

  • Switch to the Dashboard of Another Track

    If you have more than one track registered for CASPR, you can use the Switch button at the top of the Dashboard to access the Dashboard of another track without having to log out of the system.

  • Change the Number of Positions Offered by a Track

    Match

    You should ensure that the number of positions to be filled in CASPR is correct for each track. The number of positions to be filled for a track can be changed, if necessary.

    • Select the Edit button in the Positions section of the Dashboard
    • Select the appropriate number of positions to be filled and press Submit.

    The number of positions offered can be changed until the Rank Order List Deadline for the Match.

    MPII

    All positions left unfilled in the Match are to be offered in MPII, and will be transferred automatically into MPII. A program can decide not to offer an unfilled position in MPII only if it decides not to fill the position in the track for the coming year (e.g., anticipated loss of funding, shifting of funding to other purposes).

    Positions that become available after the Match, such as positions for which funding becomes assured after the Match Rank Order List deadline or newly created positions, may also be offered to applicants in MPII.

    The number of positions offered by a track that is active in MPII can be changed in the NMS Match System until the MPII Rank Order List deadline, in the same manner as described above for the Match.


  • Participation Status - Withdraw or Reinstate a Track

    The Status section shows the track's participation status in CASPR. All registered tracks that intend to offer positions in 2024 should have a status of Active in the Match.

    If the track is no longer offering positions in 2024, it should withdraw from CASPR.

    If your track has positions available but no acceptable applicants, you should certify a Rank Order List with No Ranks. Do not withdraw the track from CASPR.


    Withdraw a Track:

    • Select the Edit button in the Status section of the Dashboard
    • Select a reason for withdrawing
    • Enter your password and press Submit.
    • If you want to prevent applicants from applying to your track, you must go to Application Settings and set your application deadline to a date in the past.
    edit status


    If you have withdrawn a track in CASPR but now want that track to participate, you can reinstate that track prior to the Rank Order List deadline for that Phase.

    Reinstate a Track in CASPR:

    • Select the Edit button in the Status section of the Dashboard
    • Follow the instructions provided on the screen to complete the reinstatement process.

    • The description of the new track must start with the program type (PMSR or PMSR/RRA), and must be unique and clearly distinguish that track from any other track offered by your residency program. You may also need to modify the description(s) of the previously existing track(s) offered by your program to ensure the track descriptions clearly identify each track.
    • The Track Code Number will be assigned to the new track automatically by the system.

    MPII

    To add a new a track in MPII, you must send a written request to CASPR before the MPII Rank Order List deadline on March 11, 2024, on your program’s letterhead and signed by the Program Director, indicating the description of the track and the number of positions to be offered in CASPR.

  • Update Program and/or Track Information

    You may edit most of this information until the Rank Order List deadline for the track. However, you cannot change the residency program display name or the track description once CASPR is open for the entry of rankings.

    To update your Profile information:

    • Select the Profile option from the NMS Match System menu.
    • Select the Edit button next to the information you want to change.
    • Update your information, and press the Save button.

    Detailed instructions about the content to be entered into each field can be found by pressing the tooltip icon (?) next to the field name.

    If your residency program has more than one track in CASPR, any changes you make to the Residency Program Information for one track will be made automatically for all tracks at the residency program. You cannot have different contact information for different tracks within your residency program.

  • Access Your Applications

    To access the applications submitted to your program, log into the NMS Match System and select the Your Applications option from the menu. That will display the list of applicants to your program.

    When an applicant adds your program to their list of pending applications, you are provided with their name and contact information.
