Registering with the NRMP
In order for a senior in a U.S. allopathic medical school to participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) as a U.S. senior, the following requirements must be met:
To register for The Match, select the navigation button "Register/Login" from this page or from the NRMP home page. The NRMP's secure, web-based Registration, Ranking, and Results® (R3®) system uses the AAMC ID and a password as the unique identifier of each participant. If you do not already have one, you will be assigned an AAMC ID as part of the registration process and you will select your own password needed for future access to the R3 system. Keep this information in a secure place to prevent any breach of security to your rank order list.
Before registering for The Match, students are asked to carefully review the Match Participation Agreement.
When you register for The Match you enter into a contractual agreement with the NRMP and all the programs that you include on your rank order lists.
Payment of the $60.00 registration fee for U.S. seniors must be made at the time of registration for the Main Residency Match. Applicants who complete their registrations after November 30th must pay an additional $50 late registration fee. All registration fees are non-refundable.
By electing to pay by credit card or electronic banking, the applicant authorizes the NRMP to supply the applicant's bank with information it requires about your NRMP Agreement to resolve any inquiries concerning related charges.
Registration entitles the applicant to the following NRMP services:
Note: Applicants with outstanding registration fees will not be able to enter rank order lists or to be ranked by programs until all fees have been paid in full.
Updating Your Profile
Applicants can update information in their profiles at any time during the Match process through the R3 system. It is particularly important to keep e-mail addresses and phone numbers current so the NRMP can keep in contact with you. The NRMP uses e-mail to send reminders, notices, and Match results.
Applicants notify the NRMP of their desire to participate as a couple by providing their partner's AAMC ID through the NRMP R3 system and paying an additional $15 per partner couples fee. Applicants who are members of a couple can link their program choices together so that they can be matched into a combination of programs suited to their needs. In creating pairs of program choices on their rank order lists, couples can mix specialties, program types, and geographic locations. Applying as a couple should not influence the selection decisions made by program directors.
Verification of Credentials
The NRMP requires verification of expected graduation from the dean of student affairs for every senior registered for The Match. Without verification, the student is not permitted to be included in The Match. Applicants whose graduation from medical school is not verified by their institutions will be withdrawn automatically by the NRMP.
Withdrawal from the Match
U.S. seniors can withdraw from The Match only through the dean for student affairs.
Withdrawal requests must be entered before the rank order list deadline. Applicants who have submitted certified rank order lists and do not withdraw by the deadline will be included in The Match. They will be obligated to accept an appointment if matched and if all of the program prerequisites have been satisfied.
Applicants with unpaid registration fees will be withdrawn.
Applicants can confirm whether they are withdrawn by logging on to the R3 system.
