Residency applicants need access to reliable, consistent, and detailed residency program minimum requirements. Program websites often lack essential details or are outdated. Other residency lists have only partial information for many programs.
Match A Resident believes that knowing accurate and detailed minimum requirements is essential for applying to compatible programs only, thus saving applicants hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars.
Match A Resident spends about 6-8 weeks each year by calling programs directly in order to have in-depth conversations with programs over the phone.
Our professionally trained update team is able to determine strict cutoffs versus flexible preferences for many core residency application criteria.
Match A Resident Customized Lists are dynamic, in that as soon as a program is updated, any changes are reflected in the system and Member Lists are automatically updated.
