Student Doctors Preparing for Residency AOA Post-Match

AOA Post-Match

Step by step

Didn't match? Here's what to do next

After NRMP Match Week concludes, students who didn't match and programs with open training spots can connect through the AOA Post-Match.

Students seeking residency positions after the Match can find list of programs with available positions on the AOA’s PostMatch website, and students may search that site for advertised positions. If an institution needs assistance posting unfilled positions, contact the AOA Department of Education at aoapostmatch@osteopathic.org or (312) 202-8299.

AOA Post-Match

It is the responsibility of the students and institutions to negotiate directly with each other during the Post-Match period in accordance with the procedures outlined below:

  • Students may contact and interview with institutions accepting applications for their internship and residency positions.
  • Upon reaching a contractual agreement with a student, the institution will provide that student with an institutional contract.
  • Both the student and the representative of the institution must sign the contract. Institutions must send students the contract within 10 working days upon reaching a contractual agreement with the student. Students have up to 10 working days to return the signed contract.
