AAMC Service for Applicants Seeking Residency Positions

Offered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), FindAResident® is a web-based search tool for finding open residency and fellowship positions in a variety of accredited specialties.

Open year-round, FindAResident is an effective resource for residency candidates who:

  • experienced an unsuccessful match through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) or post-Match Scramble,
  • are looking for off-cycle positions or specialties not featured in ERAS, or
  • want to change specialties, locations, or residency or fellowship programs.

By registering with this online service, candidates can post their resume, test scores, photo, curriculum vitae, and other pertinent information for programs to view. Users can also search a database of open training positions by post-graduate year level, specialty, and geographic preference. Programs are able to directly update vacancy information at any time, so the unfilled position information remains accurate and current.

FindAResident complements both the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP); it does not replace these services. FindAResident offers additional benefits to applicants participating in ERAS. ERAS participants can import information from their certified ERAS Common Application Form (CAF) directly into FindAResident.

Use of this service requires registration and a subscription fee; active ERAS users receive a discount on that fee. Subscriptions begin on the date of purchase and conclude at the end of the FindAResident season (September 14). For more information or to subscribe, visit FindAResident on the Web.
