Producing a best result in resident selection
Mona Signer, Jeanette Calli
National Resident Matching Program International

Selection of physicians for post-graduate training can be a chaotic process. National Resident Matching Program International provides a matching approach to resident selection that produces a “best result” for applicants and training programs. NRMPI is a subsidiary of the National Resident Matching Program, a United States-based non-profit organization that has provided physician matching services for U.S. residency programs since 1952. In NRMPI Matches, applicants send applications to the training programs of their choice, and program directors select which applicants to interview. Using NRMPI's secure web-based software, applicants and program directors rank each other in order of preference from most-preferred to least-preferred based on their own criteria. NRMPI processes those preferences using a Nobel Prize-winning mathematical algorithm to place applicants into training programs. Applicants match to their most-preferred program that also ranked them and did not fill with applicants more preferred by the program, producing a “best result”. NRMPI matching processes promote an accurate, fair, and transparent transition into residency training, and Match data can be used by governmental agencies as well as participating institutions and programs to define workforce needs, evaluate program and specialty competitiveness, and inform conversations about trends in post-graduate training. NRMPI collaborates with host countries to meet unique cultural and geographic needs. In a Match for the Health Authority – Abu Dhabi, NRMPI modified its software to accommodate HAAD's requirements, including giving preference to UAE Nationals. NRMPI also helped HAAD develop policies to govern the Match. Over three years, at least 94% of UAE Nationals were matched to positions, and no less than 98% of positions were filled.
