Strolling Through the Match
Strolling Through the Match was developed to help you make appropriate decisions about your professional career and to learn more about the process of getting post-graduate training. This book emphasizes a practical approach and encourages you to gather and summarize specialty information, establish timelines, and organize checklists and reference materials. This guidebook is not a publication of the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) or ERAS® the Electronic Residency Application Service, nor was it developed under their auspices. The material is intended to complement the information provided by the NRMP and ERAS to medical students about residency selection.
The format of this guide is designed to let you supplement this information with locally-derived materials. You may want to add to or subtract from its contents to suit your specific needs. We hope these materials will complement and expand upon existing programs on residency selection in various medical schools. The AAFP invites and welcomes your feedback on the usefulness of this guide as it seeks to assist in the professional development of future physicians.
