What is the All In Policy?

The All In Policy requires any program that participates in the Main Residency Match® to register and attempt to fill all of its positions through the Main Residency Match or another national matching plan.  A “program” is defined by its ACGME® number.  The Policy does not require programs to include all positions for which they are accredited, just those they wish to fill for a given training year.  The Policy applies to

  • all positions for which the NRMP offers matching services, including PGY-1, PGY-2, and in the case of Child Neurology, PGY-3 positions.
  • all PGY-1 positions and PGY-2 positions in specialties accredited to begin at either the PGY-1 or PGY-2 level, regardless of whether the program begins in the PGY-1 or PGY-2 year.

The All In Policy does not apply to fellowship programs.
