216 days Until Match Day

Preparing for the Match

Medical School officials must be registered users of the Registration, Ranking, and Results (R3) system in order to participate in the NRMP Matching Program.

Registering in the R3 System

New R3 Users

First-time users of the R3 system will receive an email on the day Match registration opens that contains an R3 system token link. Users who have not yet received a token link or who have difficulty redeeming the token should contact NRMP at support@nrmp.org for assistance. 

During registration, users must create a permanent, unique username and password for 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.

Returning R3 Users

Credentials for medical school users carry over from previous Matches. Returning users must log in to the R3 system to complete registration.
