MSK Match Resources & Timeline

MSK FELLOWSHIP MATCH

We have begun the first steps for the 2021 MSK Fellowship Match. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) documents have been sent out. Please make sure to submit the signed documents by August 2, 2020. The SSR will serve as the sponsoring organization with the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) managing the Match process. We will abide by the NRMP All In Policy, which means that all applicants (including internal applicants) who wish to be considered for an MSK fellowship position at a program that participates in the MSK Match must register for the Match.

In response to the ongoing pandemic and health concerns, all fellowship interviews will be virtual this year.

SCARD is also mandating a 7 calendar day grace period between offers of positions and the need for the applicant to either accept or decline the offer for all non‐match programs.

MSK FELLOWSHIP COMMON APPLICATION FORM

SSR has developed a Common Application Form that is available for download on the SSR website for programs that elect to use it. Applicants must confirm with each program to which they want to apply whether or not that program accepts the Common Application Form, or uses their own unique application. The MSK Match is not eligible for the ERAS application service.
