Idea! Vacant spots for unmatched applicants?

I have an idea that although the Match is a binding agreement, chances are some matched applicants will eventually drop off for whatever reason. In that case, would the unmatched applicants be contacted to fill in the vacant positions? If so, will the programs contact the applicants through phone or email? Or is it through some online service like Residency Swap?

Most programs will contact the applicants whom they have interviewed before via telephone or email.

The other option would be FindAResident where programs post their vacancies. But that's mostly for PGY2 and above, you will rarely find PGY1 openings.

Residency Swap website does not help you for this matter because it's for residents who are wanting to switch with other residents, not for openings.

actually Resident Swap does help you with openings. I am currently a subscription holder and I do receive notifications for PGY1 openings as well as research positions.

Have you got any notifications for PGY1 openings for IM lately? I haven't got any so far.
