I am SOAP®-eligible. How do I apply to or contact programs about unfilled positions during SOAP?

If you are SOAP-eligible, you must submit your applications only through ERAS®, beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET on Monday of Match Week, and you may apply only to Match-participating programs that are participating in SOAP.

You will be able to apply only for the categorical, preliminary, and/or advanced unfilled positions for which you are eligible.  Other individuals or entities are prohibited from initiating contact on your behalf prior to contact from the directors of unfilled programs.
