Best Practices

Ranking Strategy and Best Practices

We want to remind you of several best practices that you should use when submitting a Rank Order List for the Match:

Rank All Acceptable Choices
Participants may rank as many choices as they wish. Submitting a longer Rank Order List will not jeopardize your chances of matching with your most preferred choice but may increase the likelihood of getting a match.

Rank Your Choices According To Your True Preference
Don't consider how highly an applicant or program might rank you when ordering the choices on your Rank Order List. Using any strategy other than ranking according to your true preference may lead to a worse result for you.

Do Not Rank Any Choice That Is Unacceptable
Applicants can only be matched with programs that are on their Rank Order List. Programs can only be matched with applicants that are on their Rank Order List. Do not rank any applicant or program that you would not want to match with under any circumstances.

Feature

Add Residency Users

Program Directors can add new (secondary) users who will have access to their residency in the NMS Match System. Residency Users can view, manage, and change all program information. They will also be copied on emails sent to Program Directors from the NMS Match System (e.g., confirmations, reminders, etc.).

This feature is particularly useful for Program Directors who want to:

  • Have a coordinator or assistant enter rankings and manage Match information
  • Provide temporary access to an individual to manage the residency during an absence (e.g., vacation, maternity leave, etc.)
  • Keep other people informed of communications related to the Match.

Program Directors can log in to the NMS Match System and add new users from the Account section.
