Distribution

Email: Match result notification emails will be sent in the morning of March 9, 2022 with the intention of having all emails sent before 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time. Results will be sent by email to residency sites that participated in the Match (i.e., certified a Rank Order List and did not withdraw). Due to unreliable email exchanges and inbound servers, the delivery time for the emails cannot be guaranteed.

Web: Match result information will be available in the NMS Match System beginning at 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time on March 9, 2022.

The same Match result information will be provided by email and online. Any residency site that does not receive the result by email should access their result online.


Post-Match Process

Following release of the results, programs with unfilled positions are permitted to seek and fill positions that remain available independently of ORMatch.

Programs are able to obtain applications from applicants in any manner they desire, including directly from applicants. Applicants that registered for ORMatch can access the NMS Match System during the Post-Match Process to send applications to programs online. Individuals who did not register for ORMatch prior to the Rank Order List deadline but are seeking positions in the Post-Match Process must send applications to programs directly.

A List of Programs with Available Positions will be provided publicly on this website beginning at 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time on March 9, 2022. Information on this list may be updated by Program Coordinators.

Beginning at 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time on March 9, 2022, residency sites and Directors of Residencies at schools and colleges of optometry will also have access to information on applicants who submitted an application or certified a Rank Order but were not matched or who withdrew but indicated they are still seeking a position.

Aggregate statistics on the participation and outcome of the Match will be posted online at 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time on March 9, 2022.
