    Match Web Site

    A web site has been established at the following address: The information available on the web site includes:

    • an overview of the purpose and operation of the Match
    • the detailed schedule of dates
    • rules of participation for applicants and programs
    • a description of the matching algorithm

    Additional information will be added to the web site in the future as it becomes available, including a list of participating programs, instructions for preparing and submitting Rank Order Lists, individual applicant and institution Match results, and lists of unmatched applicants and programs with positions available after the Match.

    Applicant Registration

    Since most programs that participate in the Match also participate in the ADEA Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS), NMS has partnered with ADEA to implement a single online access point where applicants can register for either the Match or PASS, or for both services at the same time. Applicants who wish to register for the Match must do so using the shared PASS/Match registration portal. Information on accessing the registration portal is provided in the accompanying Instructions for Applicant Registration.

    If you have any questions about the Dental Match, please contact NMS.
