The post-match process (PMP) opens for postgraduate (PG) offices after the second iteration match day of the R-1 Match, as well as after the FM/ES match. At this time, PG offices will be able to indicate which programs, if any, they wish to participate in the PMP and the number of positions available. Programs with unfilled positions are not included by default – PG offices will need to specifically participate a program they wish to be included in the PMP.
Program descriptions for participating programs will be automatically approved. Programs can modify their program description if PG offices return the description for updates when the post-match process opens.
To update the list of programs participating in the post-match process in CaRMS Online:
- Under the match menu, select Program Management - Match Participation.
- Check the program(s) you would like to participate.
Note: in the 2024 R-1 Main Residency Match, post-match process, programs can be participated and un-participated at any time throughout the process until May 16th at 15:00 ET.
