Strategy

The matching algorithm is designed such that it cannot be gamed or manipulated.

The only strategy is to rank your choices in order of your true preferences, without considering how you expect to be ranked by any program.

Rank all programs at training sites to which you applied that would be acceptable. Submitting a longer list of programs may reduce your chances of being left unmatched.

Do not rank any program that you consider unacceptable (i.e., you would not want to be matched to the program, even if it was the only position available to you in the Match). You can only be matched to programs that appear on your Rank Order List.
