Your Interviews

  • Interview Invitations

    When residencies invite you to an interview using the NMS Match System, you will be sent an interview notification by email. You may receive invitations from multiple residencies, and each residency may invite you to more than one type of interview.

    The notification email includes a unique link to schedule your interview with that residency.

    Alternatively, you can log in to the NMS Match System to manage all of your interviews. The NMS Match System has two views to manage your Interviews:

    Calendar View
    • Interviews are organized by date.
    • You can change the date range to day, week or month
    • Use the left and right arrow buttons at the top of the calendar to move between dates.
    • Select the Filter button at the top of the calendar to control:
      • Which residency's events will display on the calendar
      • Whether you want to see all available events for a residency, or only the events you have scheduled with that residency
    • Each residency that has sent you an invitation will be shown in a different color. Scheduled interviews are shown in green.
    List View
    • Interviews are organized by residency, and interview type within residency (if applicable)
    • Select the View button to see available and scheduled interview times
    • Scheduled Interviews are displayed in green.
  • Schedule an Interview

    You can only book one timeslot for each interview type offered by a residency. The system will not let you book duplicate interviews or interviews that overlap with another one of your scheduled interviews.

    From the Interview Notification Email

    • Click on the Select Date and Time button in the email (or use the scheduling link url) to reach the scheduling page. The Scheduling Page shows the available time slots for each interview type to which you have been invited by the residency.
    • Select the timeslot you want to book.

    You will be shown a confirmation page and will be sent an email with the calendar invite for the interview. If you have been invited to more than one type of interview at a residency, you can return to the Scheduling Page to book a time for another interview type. If you have booked your interview and want to change your selection, you must log in to the NMS Match System and reschedule your interview.
