An applicant who matches to a PGY-1, preliminary or transitional year position only or to an advanced, PGY-2 position only would be considered partially matched. Partially-matched applicants should only apply to programs for which they are eligible during SOAP.

The NRMP is the authoritative source for applicant SOAP eligibility status. Applicants are responsible for ensuring they apply only to positions for which they are eligible, as shown on the SOAP List of Unfilled Programs in the NRMP’s R3 system.
