Applicants apply directly to fellowship programs in addition to registering for the Match. Some fellowships use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) offered by the Association of American Medical Colleges®, and others use their own application. The Applicant Match History available in the NRMP Registration Ranking, and Results® (R3®) system should be used to determine whether applicants have existing Match commitments or are eligible for appointment before offering interviews. The Applicant Match History also indicates whether an applicant has received a waiver or an active sanction.
Throughout the application, interview, and matching processes, NRMP policy requires applicants and programs to provide complete, timely, and accurate information. Institutional officials and program directors are responsible for ensuring all staff involved in the interview and matching processes understand and adhere to the terms of the Match Participation Agreement.
