Medical match policies (NRMP)

The NRMP has some new rules for 2009, which suggests that there have been some new problems (I haven't been involved for a while).

  • "Applicants who obtain positions through the Matching Program are prohibited from discussing, interviewing for, or accepting a concurrent year position with another program before a waiver has been granted by the NRMP.
  • The deadline for an applicant to request a waiver based on change of specialty is the January 15 prior to the start of training in the matched program.
  • Programs shall use the Applicant Match History in the Match Site to determine the match status of any applicant considered for appointment to the program.
  • Applicants must provide complete, timely, and accurate information to programs.
  • Programs are prohibited from requiring applicants to reveal ranking preferences or the names or identities of programs to which they have or may apply.
