Applications are not processed by NMS and are submitted to and reviewed by programs independently of the Match.
Most (but not all) programs use the ADEA PASS application service for postdoctoral applications.
ADEA PASS and the Match maintain separate directories that applicants may consult when searching for programs of interest. The two directories serve different purposes. To minimize confusion for applicants, you should ensure the information provided in each directory (e.g., institution and residency name) is consistent.

List of Registered Applicants
Residencies can access a List of Registered Applicants in the NMS Match System. The list shows the name and unique Match Code Number assigned to each applicant who is registered to participate in the Match. (The 5-digit Match Code Number for an applicant is not the same as the applicant's PASS ID.)
You must log into the NMS Match System to access the list.
Only applicants who are registered for the Match can be included on your Rank Order List. Check that all applicants your program intends to rank are included in the List of Registered Applicants.If you wish to rank an applicant who does not appear in the List, contact the applicant and encourage them to register for the Match as soon as possible.
Note: Applicants who match in Phase I of the Match are not eligible to match in Phase II. Therefore, these applicants will be removed from the List of Registered Applicants prior to the opening of the NMS Match System for rankings for Phase II.
