Default Don't participate in the Match

Hi

Some programs say that they don't participate in the match. Can anyone explain how that works?

Thanks

Maybe they aren't participating in nrmp match but in San Francisco match?
I have no idea whether pre-matches are still offered with nrmp's all in policy

Thanks for the reply...I don't know because in Freida, it says they are participating in the NRMP match not San Francisco. I called them and their voicemail said they are accepting applications by ERAS (listed the criteria) but they aren't participating in the match. I don't know if it could be pre-match, like you stated?!

If they dont participate in the match they are 100% pre-match
Programs need to be either "all in" for the match or "all-out" meaning that a program cant participate in the match AND offer pre-matches - its all one or the other

You need to directly contact the program and send your cv. But once you are accepted by a pre-match program, you can no longer participate in to the regular eras match
