Question SF Match

I found that there is another match than the usual NRMP match that is called SF Match.
I noticed that it contains very competitive residencies & fellowships; Opthalmology, Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery fellowship......

May you provide us with information about this match?
What is the difference between NRMP & SF ?
I noticed Neurosurgery Fellowship, do they mean that we can enter Neurosurgery after General Surgery?


I did not find enough info on their website

Arrow About the SF Match and the neurosurger fellowship

Yes, the SF Match is for the specialties you mentioned. These specialties are not included in the main RNMP match and they are very competitive even for the US graduate.

Neurosurgery fellowship is further specialization in neurosurgery and I don't think you can get it after finishing general surgery residency, you have to finish neurosurgery residency.
