The deadline for registering for MedPhys Match for medical physcis residency positions beginning in 2017 has now passed.
If you are seeking a residency position that begins in 2018, it is expected that information on registering for the MedPhys Match for positions beginning in 2018 will be available on this web site by the end of September, 2017.
American Association of Physicists in Medicine
I plan to apply for a position in a medical physics residency program that starts training between June 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. In order to participate in the Medical Physics Matching Program (the “MedPhys Match”), I agree:
I understand that during recruitment discussions I may freely discuss any matter with a program and that I and the program may express a high level of interest in the other. Communication guidelines are as follows:
Any expression of interest that may be made during the free discussion between me and a program is subject to change based on further considerations by either party. Both the program(s) and I have the right to change the Rank Order Lists at any time prior to the deadline for submission of the Rank Order Lists.
For the purposes of the MedPhys Match, my Rank Order List is to be the sole determinant of my order of preference for the programs to which I have applied. Similarly, for the purposes of the MedPhys Match, the Rank Order List submitted by each program is to be the sole determinant of the program's order of preference for the applicants to the program.
I understand that the result I obtain in the Match, whether I am matched or not and to which residency program I have been matched, may be reported to programs participating in the MedPhys Match, to AAPM, to the Society of Directors of Academic Medical Physics Programs (SDAMPP) and my school, and to other parties deemed necessary by AAPM or SDAMPP, either by mail or electronically.
I understand that my appointment to the program with which I am matched may be contingent on my satisfying eligibility requirements specified by the institution and program.
I understand that AAPM is responsible for enforcing this Agreement, and violations of the terms of this Agreement or the MedPhys Match Rules will be reported to AAPM. I understand that if I violate any of the terms of this Agreement or the MedPhys Match Rules, such as refusing to accept a position at the program with which I have been matched, the AAPM may pursue all available remedies, including reporting my actions to my school or to Medical Physics program directors. Furthermore, AAPM may impose penalties on me, including barring me from participation in future Medical Physics Matching Programs.
