A friend is pursuing fellowship training in the future and she wants to know how to find out which programs are participating in the match or not? On Frieda, only programs that have a complete profile listed will mention yes/no about NRMP. Those programs that have an abbreviated profile on Frieda do not mention whether or not they are participating in the match. Any ideas?

Programs participating in the match will show up in myERAS.

I think she just found a program that is participating in ERAS but not in NRMP. Here's what happened: she applied to a program that just sent her an email saying "Thank you so much for your interest in our program. We have filled our July 2018 position and will not be extending further invitations during this recruitment season." It's not a rejection for invitation; it's a statement that they've prematched someone. Their website doesn't say anything about not being in the match this year. If what you're saying is true, doesn't a program have to be all-in or all-out of the match? They shouldn't be allowed to be in and then pull out.

You need to email programs to confirm unfortunately. There's no other set way. ERAS and NRMP are not the same thing. Just because they accept applications through ERAS does not mean they will be using NRMP for the match.

Sounds like this program was very sneaky. They never said anything about not being in the match on their website. By what date do programs have to be all-in or all-out? I always assumed this had to be a decision made before they sent out invites to prevent a program from pulling out of the match during interview season just to offer a pre-match position to one or two fellowship candidates.

This totally depends on the specialty. Some require the programs use the NRMP algorithm and have rigid rules about it, some (usually smaller specialties) just use ERAS and have more lax rules. Others still don't use ERAS at all and just do things on their own or use the SF Match process which is entirely different. So we can't really answer your question without more information.

I think the 'all-in' is at the program, not institution level. One of the programs I was going to apply to in fellowship made a similar comment, but they only had one position, so if they wanted to fill with an internal candidate, then they'd just not participate in the match. It's not supposed to happen that way, but it does.

that's for residency programs...its not mandatory for fellowship programs.

Both ID and Nephrology have made it mandatory. Any program that doesn't fill through the match can no longer attend their annual meetings, I believe.
that is interesting that the 2 IM fellowships with lowest fill rate are the ones requiring programs to be all in...are they hoping that it will increase their % of programs matching?

I'd love to see where that's in writing, if it is.

I guess those subspecialties are forced to SOAP if they have unmatched positions.

Probably. Centralized application services make it incredibly easy to apply to a variety of programs you might not know about, just a few clicks!

All In Policy: Fellowship Matches - The Match, National Resident Matching Program

ID: IDSA : FAQs for All-In Match Policy Change

Neph: American Society of Nephrology | Nephrology Training - Nephrology Match

There is no SOAP for fellowships. It's a plain scramble free for all. And there tend to be more spots than applicants.

This notice was sent after most people applied for the fellowship application cycle, like a week ago.

Well, I'm not sure what else you want us to say but "bummer." If they've found their fellowship class (especially if they decide to go all internal), who can blame them for cutting it off - you wouldn't want your time wasted (on flights, hotels, vacations and meals...) nor would they want to waste theirs. Move on.

Seriously man. We're talking about wasting $25. Not chump change, but not the end of the world. Move on and forget this ever happened.
