The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) provides a uniform time for both applicants and programs to make their training selections without pressure.  Through the Main Residency Match, applicants may be matched to programs using the certified rank order lists of the applicants and program directors, or they may obtain one of the available unfilled positions during the Match Week Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program®.  The Main Residency Match is managed through the NRMP’s Registration, Ranking, and Results® system.
