Important Date Changes!

Hello again,
The Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM) and the fellowships participating in the Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) have voted to move the MSMP schedule of dates beginning with the 2012 Match for the 2013 appointment year.

These dates and deadline changes are very important.  As an applicant, your responsibility is to be aware of these changes so you can get your applications in on time. For our team at, it means the busy season is going to take place earlier than in previous years.

Please contact the NRMP with any questions at or 1866-617-5834. 

Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program (SOAP)

Good morning!

This year the National Resident Matching Program started the Match Week Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program, or SOAP.  It replaced the Scramble, and "cleaned up" the process of finding and applying to residency positions that did not fill during the Main Residency Match.  The NRMP reported that 93% of the unfilled positions were placed in SOAP.

For more information, please visit the NRMP website, where you can find more statistics about the 2012 Match.
