Never heard of this. They will try to reach you by email as well. Why would it be better? What do you think it will happen if you are not in the US and they call? I doubt they will just drop you because you were not available to answer a phonecall.

I guess after the match, you need to get in contact with your program to work the ins and outs. How else would you know what paperwork to fill (there is a contract you need to sign you know), the start date, the schedule etc.
