I look forward to discussing the merits of NRMPI, sharing the benefits of medical matching, and identifying ways in which NRMPI can help other countries broaden and strengthen their own graduate medical education processes.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) August 10, 2015
National Resident Matching Program International (NRMPI) is pleased to announce its participation in the 2015 conference of the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE), an organization representing medical educators and healthcare professionals from ninety countries on five continents. The AMEE conference annually attracts more than 3,000 attendees from around the globe. This will be the second such conference for NRMP International, a subsidiary of the United States-based National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). NRMP places medical school students and graduates into residency and fellowship training programs across the U.S. using a computerized mathematical algorithm. NRMP historically has attracted students and graduates of international medical schools interested in training in the United States, but it is equipped to address and respect the unique cultural and geographical differences of other countries.
“I am pleased to have been granted the opportunity to present to AMEE attendees,” said Mona M. Signer, NRMP President and Chief Executive Officer. “I look forward to discussing the merits of NRMPI, sharing the benefits of medical matching, and identifying ways in which NRMPI can help other countries broaden and strengthen their own graduate medical education processes.”
Ms. Signer’s presentation is scheduled for Monday, September 7, at 3:45 p.m. NRMPI representatives also will exhibit at the conference to provide information about its mathematical algorithm, web-based technology, and its sponsorship of the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) TANSEEQ Match.
About NRMPI Matches
NRMP International was established in 2010 to build global partnerships that afford other countries the ability to create their own high-quality matching programs. It uses a computerized mathematical algorithm to match applicants with medical training programs using the preferences expressed by applicants and programs. Applicants match to their most-preferred program that also ranked the applicant and did not fill with applicants more preferred by the program, producing a “best result”. NRMPI has a 100 percent accuracy rate, and research on its matching algorithm was a basis for awarding The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel in 2012.
The National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®) is a private, non-profit organization established in 1952 at the request of U.S. medical students to provide an orderly and fair mechanism for matching the preferences of applicants for U.S. residency positions with the preferences of residency program directors. In addition to the annual Main Residency Match® for more than 40,000 applicants, the NRMP conducts Fellowship Matches for more than 50 subspecialties in the U.S. through its Specialties Matching Service® (SMS®).
