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 offered by the residency
  • A report of the result obtained by each applicant who matched to a position
  • For programs with available positions - a file of information on applicants who either submitted Rank Order Lists for the Match but were not matched or withdrew but indicated they were interested in seeking a position in the Post-Match Process
  • 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 emails will be sent to all residencies and applicants that certified Rank Order Lists. The emails are sent on the morning of the Match Results Day for each Phase of the Match with the intention of having all emails sent by 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Due to unreliable email exchanges and inbound servers, we cannot guarantee a delivery time for the emails.

Beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on the Match Results Day for each Phase of the Match, each registered applicant and residency can log into 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 Eastern Time on the Match Results Day to acknowledge the Match results. You must also send a letter of confirmation of the Match results, within 10 days of the Match Results Day, to each applicant matched to your residency. Matched applicants must return the letter of confirmation in accordance with the program's instructions within 30 days of the Match Results Day for each Phase of the Match.

Although NMS makes every effort to provide you with your Match result on Match Results Day, 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 results of the Match will be posted online beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon Eastern Time on Match Results Day for each Phase of the Match.
