Withdraw from the Match

2021 SSO Breast Match


Before You Withdraw

Only tracks that are no longer offering positions for the 2022-2023 fellowship academic year should withdraw from the Match.

If a track has positions for the 2022-2023 fellowship academic year that you would like to fill, but has no acceptable applicants to rank, and you wish to include the track on the List of Programs with Available Positions for the Post-Match Process, the track should not be withdrawn. Instead, you should use the NMS Match System to certify a Rank Order List with no applicants.

If withdrawing a track will decrease the number of positions your program is offering in the 2022-2023 fellowship academic year, you must get approval from SSO prior to withdrawing. The Program Director must submit to SSO a Fellowship Complement Increase/Decrease Form by March 1, 2021. The Training Committee must approve the request prior to the Rank Order List deadline.

Implications of Withdrawing

A withdrawn track will not be included in the matching process, will not be matched with any applicants, and will not be included on the List of Programs with Available Positions that is posted for the use of applicants in the Post-Match Process.

If you withdraw a track, any rankings of applicants that may have been submitted for the track will not be used in the Match. Tracks that submit a certified Rank Order List and do not withdraw by the Rank Order List deadline will be included in the Match and will be obligated to accept the SSO Breast Match results.

How to Reinstate a Track

If you previously withdrew a track, but subsequently decide that you want to offer that track in the Match or want to include the track on the List of Programs with Available Positions for the Post-Match Process, you must get approval from SSO prior to reinstating the track. The Program Director must submit to SSO a Fellowship Complement Increase/Decrease Form by March 1, 2021. The Training Committee must approve the request prior to the Rank Order List deadline. You can then reinstate the track in the NMS Match System prior to the Rank Order List deadline.
