NRMP News and Reminders

Residency Explorer Tool is Updated

The Residency Explorer Tool is a collaborative database that helps applicants research programs in their specialty of interest and is the only tool that combines data from nine national organizations into one location. Applicants can compare themselves to previously matched applicants and residents as well as explore program characteristics across many areas of interest.

The NRMP contributed the most recent Match data to the Residency Explorer Tool so applicants have the most up-to-date information as they decide specialties and programs to which they will apply.

Charting Outcomes in the Match Reports Will Be Available in Mid-July

The NRMP will publish the 2022 Charting Outcomes in the Match research reports in mid-July.

These biennial reports highlight the characteristics of students and graduates that contribute to a program’s overall assessment of an applicant. Once published, you may view and download the 2022 Charting Outcomes in the Match reports here.

Change in Applicant Registration Fee

The NRMP has reduced the applicant registration fee to $70 for all Matches opening after July 1, 2022, including the Main Residency Match.

For Matches opening for registration prior to July 1, 2022, the applicant registration fee remains $85.
