Distribution

Email: Match result notification emails will be sent in the morning of March 9, 2022 with the intention of having all emails sent by 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time. Results will be sent by email to all Directors of Residencies at ACOE accredited schools or colleges of optometry. Due to unreliable email exchanges and inbound servers, the delivery time for the emails cannot be guaranteed.

Statistics

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.

Post-Match Process

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

Beginning at 12:00 p.m noon Eastern Time on March 9, 2022, a List of Programs with Available Positions will be available publicly on this website. Information on this list may be updated by Program Coordinators. Residency Sites and Directors of Residencies at schools and colleges of optometry will have access to information on applicants who submitted an application or certified a Rank Order List but were not matched, or who withdrew but indicated they are still seeking a position.

Programs can accept applications during the Post-Match Process in any manner they desire. Applicants who registered for ORMatch but did not obtain a position can use the NMS Match System to send applications online to programs with positions available. Individuals who did not register for ORMatch prior to the Rank Order List deadline but are seeking positions during the Post-Match Process must send applications to programs directly.
