prematch are programs that do not participate in match. they take interviews and can offer residency spot much before the match date in march.

Last I heard that programs no longer offer prematch, or the number of those that do has been reduced dramatically.

There are no more prematch programs as far as I know.

ECFMG says:

The Match is changing too. You may have heard that the NRMP has adopted an “All-In” policy for the 2013 Match. This policy requires that, to participate in the Match, programs must register and attempt to fill all of their residency positions through the Main Residency Match, or through another national matching plan. Programs must place all positions in the Match or no positions in the Match.

I think that concernes the prematch positions.

On the other hand you have the preliminary programs. Those are different from the categorical ones.
