Applications are not processed by NMS. Applications are submitted to and reviewed by programs independent of the Match.
Many programs use the Medical Physics Residency Application Program (MP-RAP) provided by AAPM.
To minimize confusion for applicants, programs that participate in both MP-RAP and the MedPhys Match should ensure that information such as residency and program names are consistent in both systems.
In order to submit your Rank Order List(s) by the deadline, all your applicant interviews should be completed before that deadline date. You are reminded that, according to the Residency Agreement you may not require any commitments from applicants or make any offers of appointment to applicants prior to the release of the Match results.
A program may voluntarily inform an applicant that it intends to rank the applicant. Similarly, an applicant may voluntarily inform a program that they intend to rank the program. However, neither the program nor applicant may ask or prompt the other side for this information. Furthermore, while you may freely discuss any matter with an applicant, neither programs nor applicants may disclose information about rank positioning.
