The Match

How It Works

Each year, fourth year students begin applying and preparing for The Match.  In addition to registering with ERAS  (the Electronic Residency Application Service) or another application service, they will also register for one or more match programs.

ERAS is the main application service supported by the AAMC.  ERAS transmits a standardized application, letters of recommendation, the Medical Student Performance Evaluation, transcripts, and other supporting credentials from applicants and designated dean's offices to fellowship and residency programs

National Resident Matching Program is the main residency match.
