Newly accredited programs are announcing openings for the 2020 season. For medical residency program directors awaiting accreditation for a new program. Thousands of NRMP applicants are still looking for a residency position. Please consider listing program information now, instead of later. Some programs have listed information about their pending accreditation and the specialty with the disclaimer that they are awaiting an accreditation decision. This could help facilitate a quicker selection of residents and smoother transition into the program. Please fill every position possible, as each year there will be more applicants graduating, but the same number of residency positions available. This month will be challenging as applicants try and decide on committing to research positions, jobs or to wait as long as possible to see if a position opens up. Thank you for creating the best situation for all sides of the equation.
