Anybody doing a prelim year in rochester want to trade for prelim in cleveland?
Is that even possible? Would you think both programs would agree to it?
It'd be a match violation for both you and the programs for you to switch.
No, it's not if all parties involved (both residency programs and both residents) agree to it.
Thats right. If every one agrees, whats the problem?
So ... anyone?
"7.1 Match Commitment
The listing of an applicant by a program on its certified rank order list or of a program by an applicant on the applicant's certified rank order list establishes a binding commitment to offer or to accept an appointment if a match results.
Any program that offers a position to an applicant who matched to a concurrent year position in another program will be in material breach of this Agreement and the Match Participation Agreement Among Applicants, the NRMP, and Participating Programs and may be subject to penalties, as described in Section 9.0."
In order for you and someone else to switch programs, you have to get a hardship waiver from the NRMP to drop your appointment. Then, you can negotiate with another prelim program. If you negotiate with the other prelim program while still holding a match appointment, they are in violation of the match.
ok. No problem. Anyone interested?
This can be done, did it last year, former classmate did it this year. Depends completely on the institutions wanting to or not.
