Reversions for Programs

The 2022 Genetic Counseling Admissions Match


Before You Start

The Basics

  • Reversions can be entered into the NMS Match System when the system opens for the entry of rankings on March 30, 2022, and must be entered by the Rank Order List deadline at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on April 13, 2022.
  • Reversions can only be set up between tracks within the same program.
  • Reversions must be added in the NMS Match System by the Donor.
  • For reversions involving tracks that will submit Multiple Lists for a single track, the Multiple Lists must be set up before the reversions can be entered.

Rules

  • A Donor can revert some or all of its unfilled positions. It can also revert unfilled positions to more than one Receiver (example).
  • If a Donor will revert unfilled positions to more than one Receiver, you must set up a separate reversion specifying each Receiver. The reversions must be entered in the sequence in which the unfilled positions should be donated.
  • Reversions of unfilled positions can be "chained"; for example, List A can revert unfilled positions to List B, and if any positions remain unfilled on List B, then these positions can revert to List C, and so on.
  • Reversions cannot be circular, that is, a chain of reversions cannot "loop back" to the beginning. For example, if you add one reversion from List A to List B, another from List B to List C, you cannot also add a reversion from List C back to List A.
  • Once a position has been reverted within the matching process it will remain with the final Receiver to which it reverted, whether or not it has been successfully filled. This may cause the Receiver track to go into the Post-Match Process.

Note: entering or modifying a reversion will not change the certification status of a Rank Order List.

If you have questions about reversions, contact NMS.

Add a Reversion

  • From a Donor Track that is Submitting a Single Rank Order List

    Step 1

     Log in to the NMS Match System for the track that will be the Donor.

    Step 2

    Select the Reversions option from the menu.

    access reversions

    Step 3

    The Reversions page is set up in two sections. The upper section shows all reversions where the selected track is the Donor. The lower section shows all reversions where the selected track is the Receiver. Any position(s) that are reverted from the Donor will remain with the Receiver once the Match is complete.

    Select the Add Reversion button in the Donor section.

    Step 4

    For each reversion you want to add, you must select:

    • The Receiver track. If the Receiver track has Multiple Lists, you must select the specific List that will receive the reverted position(s).
    • The maximum number of unfilled positions to be reverted from the Donor to the Receiver. If the Donor should revert all unfilled positions to the Receiver, select the option for "ALL". Note: if the Donor may also receive positions from another reversion, any positions received from that reversion are included in the maximum number of positions available to donate (example).

    Once all options are selected, press the Add button.

  • From a Donor Track that is Submitting Multiple Lists

    Make sure you have set up your Multiple Lists before entering reversions.

    Step 1

     Log in to the NMS Match System for the Donor track with the Multiple Lists.

    Step 2

    Select the Reversions option from the menu.

    access reversions

    Step 3

    Press the Select button for the List that will be the Donor for the reversion.

    access reversions

    Step 4

    The Reversions page is set up in two sections. The upper section shows all the reversions where the selected List is the Donor. The lower section shows all the reversions where the selected List is the Receiver. Any position(s) that are reverted from the Donor will remain with the Receiver once the Match is complete.

    Select the Add Reversion button in the Donor section.

    add reversion button

    Step 5

    For each reversion you want to add, you must select:

    • The Receiver List. The Receiver can be another List for the same track or a List for a different track offered by your program.
    • The maximum number of unfilled positions to be reverted from the Donor to the Receiver. If the Donor should revert all unfilled positions to the Receiver, select the option for "ALL". Note: if the Donor may also receive positions from another reversion, any positions received from that reversion are included in the maximum number of positions available to donate. (example)

    add reversion form

    Step 6

    Once all options are selected, press the Add button.

    Note: Adding a reversion between Multiple Lists for the same track will create a record in both the Donor and Receiver sections of the Reversions page for the track, as Lists belonging to the track are both a Donor and a Receiver.

  • Changing a Reversion

    If you need to change a reversion, you must delete the reversion and add a new one. To delete a reversion, press the Delete button to the right of the reversion you wish to delete.

    Delete reversion button

Each reversion added for a Donor is automatically assigned a Sequence Number, starting with 1 for the first reversion from the Donor. If more than one reversion will be set up from the Donor, the reversions must be entered in the exact sequence in which the donations of positions are to occur.

Reversion Summary

The Reversion Summary page shows all reversions that involve tracks at your program. Once all reversions for your program have been entered, you should print a copy of the Reversion Summary for your records. The Reversion Summary page will be available from March 30, 2022 until April 26, 2022, however you will not be able to make any changes to reversions in the NMS Match System after the Rank Order List deadline.
