NRMP Lawyer

Due to strict enforcement policies, residency match applicants regularly find themselves accused of violating the National Resident Matching Program’s (NRMP) Match Participation Agreement. Confirmation of a violation can bring about steep penalties, resulting in the creation of a Final Report detailing the participant’s alleged transgressions. This Final Report may be sent to the applicant’s medical school, the American Board of Medical Specialties, any potential residency programs interested in the applicant, and the Federation of State Medical Boards, among other organizations. In certain cases, a participant may be barred from taking part in The Match® or programs associated with The Match® for up to three years or, in extreme circumstances, permanently. Allegations of a potential Match Violation are serious matters that can place a medical school graduate’s years of hard work and financial commitment in jeopardy.

We represent medical students, residents, interns, fellows and other practitioners facing allegations of a Match Violation before the NRMP. We help ensure that any investigations or disputes are handled fairly, assist in the preparation of responses to the NRMP, and represent clients at arbitration where necessary and appropriate.

Despite the binding nature of The Match®, circumstances change. Matched applicants may find themselves unable to fulfill their commitment. Conversely, training programs may try to back out of their commitments and rely on questionable reasons as justification for doing so. In addition to representing medical students and graduates in allegations relating to Match Violations, our attorneys have represented numerous clients who have, with our assistance, obtained a waiver from their Match® commitment, and have likewise successfully opposed residency programs’ attempts to obtain a waiver from a Match® commitment.
