Prior to Match Day
Program directors should review and update program information in the R3 system to ensure applicants can contact them in the event the program does not fill all positions when the matching algorithm is processed.
At 12:00 p.m. ET on Match Day for each Fellowship Match, program directors and coordinators can log in to the Registration, Ranking, and Results® (R3®) system to learn if all positions were filled and to access the program’s Confidential Roster of Matched Applicants and other Match reports. Programs with unfilled positions can access the List of Unmatched Applicants and begin contacting them about a position. Programs should utilize the Applicant Match History in the R3 system to determine an applicant’s eligibility prior to offering them an interview.
NRMP recommends program directors print and archive Match reports on or soon after Match Day so they can be used for state and federal report, institutional and program accreditation, and other purposes. Reports will NOT be available in the R3 system after the Match closes. The NRMP charges a fee for requests for data received after a Match has closed.
