Prior to Match Day

  • Institutional officials should review and update the institution’s billing information in the R3 system to ensure timely processing of the Match invoice and to avoid late fees.
  • Program directors should be reminded to review and update program information in the R3 system to ensure unmatched applicants can contact them in the event the program does not fill all positions when the matching algorithm is processed.

Match Day

At 12:00 p.m. ET on Match Day, institutional officials, program directors, and coordinators can log in to the R3 system to learn if all positions were filled and to access the program’s Confidential Roster of Matched Applicants and other Match reports. Institutions and programs can join the Match Day celebration on Tagboard by sharing photos and messages on social media using #FellowMatch. View Access Results Reports support guide

Unfilled Programs

Programs with unfilled positions can view the List of Unmatched Applicants and begin contacting them about a position.

Print and Archive Reports

NRMP recommends institutional officials print and archive reports on Match Day so they can be used for state and federal reports, institutional and program accreditation, and other purposes. The NRMP charges a fee for each report for Matches closed in the R3 system, and only Match Results by Ranked Applicants and Characteristics of Matched Applicants reports will be available.
