The Registration, Ranking, and Results® (R3®) system is the web-based software application through which all NRMP Matches are managed. The R3 system maintains the highest level of security and confidentiality and can be used with any computer with access to the Internet.
To participate in a Match, users must create a unique username and password that affords them access to the R3 system. This information belongs to the individual, not the institution, program, or medical school, and it is a violation of the Match Participation Agreement if a user allows another individual to use personal login credentials to access the R3 system.
The R3 system can be accessed directly here or by clicking on the yellow “LOG IN/REGISTER” button at the top of the page.
Applicants must register in the R3 system for each Match in which they participate. Applicants who participated in a previous Match are able to choose the same username and password as part of the registration process. Applicants who have not participated in a previous Match will be assigned an NRMP ID.
Please note that the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) is a separate organization and requires its own registration. Login credentials from ERAS will not work in the R3 system. The ERAS application contains an NRMP ID field but it is NOT required to submit applications to programs. The NRMP ID field is in the Personal Information section of the ERAS application and can be added at any time. Applicants are encouraged to return to their “MyERAS” profile and enter their NRMP ID once they have registered for a Match.
