Yes.  Although changes to the application and recruitment process will not begin until September 2024, NRMP policy requires that all programs inform applicants about the specific application service or process they intend to use beginning with the 2024 Main Residency Match and for SOAP. In addition, the NRMP’s Registration, Ranking, and Results system (R3) will be updated for the 2024 Main Residency Match to require programs to identify all of the application services they will accept for the transition cycle. This will ensure transparency and allow applicants to prepare accordingly, regardless of the application process the programs require.
