Historically, the NRMP has shown no preference for, or mandated applicants or programs using a particular application service or process. With the onset of the Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP) in 2012, the NRMP modified its Match Participation Agreements to identify the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) as the required application service during Match Week specifically to reduce the stress and chaos associated with applying to and communicating about unfilled positions via fax, phone, and email. Since ACOG has announced its intention to utilize a different application service, the NRMP has broadened its Match Week policies to allow for the use of other application services or processes that a program requires during SOAP.
