Match Time Again?

For those who don’t know, the NRMP Match happens every year and around this time, all of the medical students are certifying their rank order lists.

For this year, the rank order list certification deadline:

February 20, 2019

Today is February 18, 2019. If you haven’t already certified your rank order list, please do so today. You don’t want to be be doing it February 20, 2019 when the application will likely crash from all the medical students certifying and re-certifying their rank order lists.

Normally, every year I try to remind applicants how to handle their rank order lists and the NRMP Match in general… However, for some reason, it just slipped my mind this year.

That said, in these final days, you may want to check out these posts I’ve written about the whole Match process over the years:

The NRMP Match

Not in Medicine Mondays, but included for completeness’s sake: Traveling for Interviews

Or, if you’ve found this page after you’ve already matched, you can read this instead:

Preparing to start residency:

Not in Medicine Mondays, but related: Mr. Smith and Dr. Jones

These posts are all on my Roadmap pages which you can find on Start Here.

Anything else?

Yea, my apologies for not posting this earlier. I will try to remember to do this post at least once a year, probably around September when the Match process first opens. I’m not quite sure why I forgot this year.


Just a checklist post about the whole Match Process.

Then another list of posts for what to do After The Match.

I’ll try to remember to post this stuff September every year, since for some of it, it’s kind of too late.
