In the latest video celebrating NRMP’s 70th anniversary, NRMP Chief of Match Operations Jeanette Calli provides a recap of the 2023 Main Residency Match and Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP). After the matching algorithm was processed and SOAP concluded, there was a 99.1% overall fill rate.
