Every program participating in an NRMP Match has a unique 9-11 character code constructed in the following manner:

  • Characters 1-4: the institution code
  • Characters 5-7: the ACGME specialty code
  • Character 8: program type letter
  • Characters 9-11: track number (track number will be “0” unless an institution has more than one program in a specialty of the same program type.  Additional track designations are automatically numbered sequentially)

 Example: 1000140C0
