Content

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 each program
  • A report of the result obtained by each applicant who obtained a position in the Match
  • For programs with available positions - a list of applicants who submitted Rank Order Lists for the Match but were not matched to a position
  • Summary statistics of the results of the Match for applicants and programs

When the results are released, applicants who did not obtain a position in the Match will have access to a list of positions that remain available after the Match. Programs that participated in the Match will be able to update the information shown on this list, including contact information and the number of positions available in each program.

Distribution

Match result notification e-mails will be sent to all residencies and applicants that submitted Rank Order Lists. The e-mails are sent on the morning of the Match Results Release Date for each Phase of the Match with the intention of having all e-mails sent by 11:00 a.m. ET. Due to unreliable e-mail exchanges and inbound servers, we cannot guarantee a delivery time for the e-mails.

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.

You should contact the applicant(s) with whom your residency is matched as soon as possible after 12:00 p.m. noon ET on the Match Results Release Date to acknowledge the Match results. You must also send a letter of confirmation of the Match results, within 10 days of the Match Results Release Date, to each applicant matched to your residency. Matched applicants must sign and return the letters within 30 days of the Match Results Release Date.

Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result on the Match Results Release Date, failure to receive your result on that day does not affect your obligation to the applicants matched to your residency.

Statistics

Aggregate statistics on the participation and outcome of the Match will be posted online beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon ET on the Match Results Release Date for each Phase of the Match.
