Match Day

Friday, March 20, 2020

On Match Day, fourth-year medical students learn the results of their residency match status at noon. Each student will receive the envelope that contains their future and location of their residency training for the next several years.

The National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®), or The Match®, is a private, non-profit organization established in 1952 at the request of medical students to provide an orderly and fair mechanism for matching the preferences of applicants for U.S. residency positions with the preferences of residency program directors. In addition to the annual Main Residency Match® that encompasses more than 42,000 applicants and 30,000 positions, the NRMP conducts Fellowship Matches for more than 60 subspecialties through its Specialties Matching Service® (SMS®). NRMP is governed by a Board of Directors that includes representatives from national medical and medical education organizations as well as medical students, resident physicians, and graduate medical education program directors.
