‘Tis the season for all things residency! By this time, you have likely submitted all of your applications to optometry residency programs using the ORMatch Application Service. Now, the next couple of months are going to go by quickly with traveling for interviews, ranking your programs, and waiting for the Match results!

We want to make sure that you don’t miss any important dates and deadlines, so here you go: 

January 24, 2020

By this date, instructions for submitting Rank Order Lists and obtaining Match results will be available to applicants and program coordinators who have registered to participate in ORMatch.

January 31, 2020

This is the application cutoff date for ORMatch to obtain verified NBEO score information to be transmitted to the residency programs. Applications submitted after this date will not have verified NBEO score information sent to the program by ORMatch. Official score information for any application submitted after this date will need to be provided directly to the program by the applicant.
