The NRMP facilitates the matching of medical residents and residency hospitals. It uses the preferences expressed in the Rank Order Lists submitted by applicants and programs to place individuals into positions. The process starts with an attempt to place an applicant into the program indicated as most preferred on that applicant's list. If the applicant is not matched to this first choice program, an attempt is made to place the applicant into the second choice program, and so on, until the applicant obtains a tentative match, or all the applicant's choices is exhausted.
|Fellowships are defined by the Accredited Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) as training in subspecialty graduate medical education programs. There are varieties of fellowship programs available in different specialties.
You are welcome to ask for hospital review for residency. We will be providing them to those who ask them first.

Step 1 ensures mastery of the sciences that provide a foundation for the safe and competent practice of medicine. It also tests the scientific principles required for maintenance of competence through lifelong learning.
Step 2 CK tests the medical knowledge, skills, and understanding of clinical science essential for the provision of patient care under supervision. It also includes emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. Step 2 CK ensures that due attention is devoted to principles of clinical sciences and basic patient-centered skills.
Step 2 CS tests your capacity to practice and provide good medical service in real-life situations. It also tests your communication skills.
