Access NMS Match System

You can access the NMS Match System by selecting the Log In option in the menubutton in the top-right corner of the screen.

To log in to the NMS Match System for the first time you will need to enter the login credentials provided to you by e-mail by NMS.

  • Forgot Password?

    If you do not know your password, you can use the Forgot Password? feature available on the NMS Match System login page. If the System does not recognize your e-mail, please contact NMS.


After you log into the NMS Match System you are presented with a Dashboard. The Dashboard provides summary information about your school, access to a List of Students as well as applications to the residency sites affiliated with your school.

Account Information

The Account page allows you to edit your e-mail address, password and security questions. Only one contact e-mail address is allowed for your school.

Your initial password is assigned to your Account by ORMatch and can be changed if desired. If you change your e-mail or password, you will have to use the new values for subsequent logins to the NMS Match System.

Security questions and answers are not set initially in the NMS Match System, although we recommend you add them.

Ensure your e-mail address is correct, as ORMatch results for your school and other correspondence pertaining to ORMatch will be sent to that e-mail address.

If you are the Director of Residencies as well as the Program Coordinator for a residency site that is registered for ORMatch, your login credentials are the same across all roles. Any changes you make to the Account Information will be made automatically for all of your roles.
