Interpretation of Match Trends
  • Mt. Sinai was not doing as well - WRONG!!!!
  • Student strategy has changed-CORRECT!!!!
  • Students have been educated to go for it and
    list top programs - THERE IS NO PENALTY FOR DOING
    THIS
  • Students have matched to much better programs
    than in the past and upward trend is evident

5

The DealStatistics are Great but...
  • The Reality

0 100
7
Key Point
  • Any verbal indication of ranking by a program is
    not binding
  • The Rank Order List takes precedence!

8
Codes
  • An NRMP code identifies each program
  • Be sure the code matches the program exactly
    (e.g. Internal Medicine vs. Internal Medicine
    Primary Care Track)

9
Position Types
  • Categorical
  • enter in 1st post-graduate year and continue
    until training completed
  • Preliminary
  • 1 or 2 years of pre-requisite training for entry
    into an advanced field
  • Advanced
  • to begin in 2005, in specialty programs after
    completion of preliminary training
  • Physician
  • not applicable to U.S. senior med students

WARNING!!!
  • You must use the navigation buttons
  • If you use the browsers forward and back
    buttons, it could change your list in some
    unintentional way

15
Entering Programs
  • Inactive programs can be listed but will not be
    used in the Match. Some programs may change from
    inactive to active

16
Couples Match
  • The decision to participate as a couple need not
    be made until the time of submission of the Rank
    Order Lists
  • If you apply as a couple, it will not affect
    selection decisions by program directors
  • The couple will match to the most preferred pair
    of programs on the Couples Rank Order List where
    each partner has been offered a position
  • Couples must register both partners AAMC IDs in
    their NRMP files

17
Withdrawal
  • If you choose not to enter a residency or are
    unable to, you must withdraw from the match
  • All withdrawals from the Match must be done
    through Student Affairs

18
Rank Order Lists
  • Rank programs in the order that they are
    preferred
  • Choices should not be influenced by your
    perception of what the program thinks of you
  • Do NOT rank programs that you do not want to enter

19
The Rose Post-It Method
20
POLICY
  • Applicants programs are bound by the match
    results

21
Key Points
  • Use the correct number for the 2004 Match to
    identify program codes
  • On the Primary Rank Order List you may mix
    specialty types
  • Use supplemental list only if you are ranking
    advanced positions beginning in 2005

22
Key Points
  • A supplemental rank order list will only be used
    if the applicant matches to an Advanced S
    program on the Primary Rank Order List
  • If the NRMP is unable to match you to a 1st year
    program, the match to an advanced program holds
    and you have to seek a PGY-1 position post-match

23
Certification
  • YOU MUST CERTIFY YOUR LIST

24
Strategy
  • GO FOR IT!!!
  • You will not be penalized for listing a top-notch
    program even if you have concerns whether they
    will list you
  • List them! It will not hurt you!

25
Length of Rank ListUS Senior Students
26
Doing the Rank Order ListWebROLIC
  • You may make an appointment in Student Affairs to
    be assisted in your listing of your choices.
  • You should list at least 6-7 programs in order to
    increase your chances of matching
  • You may change your list up until 2/25/04 at
    1159 p.m. EST
  • You must remember to certify your list and any
    changes

27
THE BIG DAYThursday, March 18, 2004
  • Students can check the Web on Monday 3/15 at noon
    to see if they matched.
  • Unmatched students must meet with a Dean to plan
    a strategy
  • Unmatched students will be able to contact
    programs after 1200 noon EST on Tuesday, March 16

28
Letters of Appointment
  • Hospitals will forward letters of appointment to
    you
  • Remember to return your acceptance by the
    specified date

29
The AlgorithmCandidate-Preferred
  • This formula was initiated five years ago
  • The formula favors the applicant as opposed to
    the program

30
A Few Things to Think About
  • Dont lurk around the office during the unmatch
    time IF you have matched. Respect the privacy of
    your colleagues.
  • The office will be closed during unmatch time to
    enhance privacy. Reach me by e-mail if you need
    me.
  • If you see me in the hall and you know I know
    your match result - dont read anything into my
    reaction! I cannot share the result with you or
    my usual elation with you.
  • Think about your own reaction a couple of
    students came to see me last year and felt that
    the match announcement was too much drama and for
    the very few disappointed students it was
    difficult. We encourage you to share the day!
    We dont embarrass you and make you pull numbers
    out of a hat and have you read whats in your
    envelope to everyone but if you need privacy
    take your envelope home or outside or upstairs
    and then come back and celebrate
  • Be prepared for what may come Heres the
    question Will I be happy with anything on my
    list or would I rather go unmatched?
