What Are Reversions
Residencies that are offering more than one program/track in the MedPhys Match will not know if all programs will fill all their positions in the matching process. In some cases, a residency may be willing to move an unfilled position from one program to another, in order to maximize the number of positions filled at the residency. Reversions can be used to accomplish this objective.
For example, a residency offering a program in Location-A and a second program in Location-B could specify that any position that remains unfilled on the Rank Order List for the program in Location-A should revert to the Rank Order List for the program in Location-B, and an attempt should be made to fill the position(s) with additional applicants from the Rank Order List for the program in Location-B. In this case, the Rank Order List for the program in Location-A is the Donor list (because it is donating unfilled positions) and the Rank Order List for the program in Location-B is the Receiver list (because it is receiving unfilled positions from the Donor list).
Similarly, a program that is submitting Multiple Lists can use reversions to move positions across lists, in an attempt to fill all available positions in the program.
