MedMatchPlus+ is a supplement to the traditional ERAS® application used to apply to residency programs. It does not replace the original application; it uses video, photographs, and your personal story to help your profile stand out from the crowd. By putting a face to your application, residency coordinators will be able to see you for who you are instead of a name on a piece of paper. This will improve your chances that you will be selected for an interview and then matched with a program.
MedMatchPlus+ was started by Dr. Claude Pirtle and Dr. Shaminder Gupta. Both Drs. Pirtle and Gupta graduated from Louisiana State University’s School of Medicine in New Orleans. Because of his previous experience as an Associate Program Director, Dr. Gupta has first-hand knowledge of the Residency Match process. They both understand how difficult it can be to get noticed in a sea of applications. As a result, they created MedMatchPlus+ as a way for residency candidates to stand out.
When you create your MedMatchPlus+ profile, you’ll have access to our extensive library of Candidate Resources to help you maximize the potential of your profile. MedMatchPlus+ can connect you to a network of thousands of residency programs, allowing you to send your profile to the programs you are most interested in. If you are interested in standing out from the crowd and improving your chances of being matched with a residency program, sign up with MedMatchPlus+ today.
