Residency and Match Information

The National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) is an objective web-based system used to confidentially match applicants and residency programs. This program utilizes what is known as the “R3 System” allowing an applicant to register to match, rank residency programs and obtain results of match outcomes. Students must go to the National Residency Match Program website at and complete the registration form online. All applicants must agree to the terms and conditions of the MATCH and pay a registration fee.

Approximately 95% of residency programs use the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to fill positions. CHM applicants will apply for positions through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and register with the NRMP to match. Most programs participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), which transmits residency applications to program directors via the Internet. Applicants must register with both NRMP and ERAS to participate in the services of each. Please note: Registering with ERAS does not register applicants with the NRMP nor does registering with the NRMP register applicants for ERAS.
