APDEM STATEMENT REGARDING ALL-IN MATCH

After an extensive deliberation process regarding a potential All In Match policy for adult endocrinology fellowship programs, the Association of Program Directors in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism (APDEM) released a formal survey to all ACGME-approved programs to establish each program director’s preference between an All In Match policy and the current (“status quo”) Match policy. APDEM Council is pleased to announce that 130 out of 141 program directors (PDs) completed the formal survey (92.2% participation rate).

Eighty percent of PD respondents (i.e., 104 of 130) expressed a preference for the proposed All In Match policy over the “status quo.” On the basis of these results, APDEM Council was unanimously in favor of moving adult endocrinology to an All In Match policy. Accordingly, APDEM will work with the NRMP to implement a new policy whereby all participating adult endocrinology programs are required to register and attempt to fill all positions in the NRMP’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (i.e., the “Match”), unless an exception is granted.

To read more about this new policy and next steps, please see this communication that went out to programs on Friday, August 11, 2017.

Many thanks to the All In Working Group during this process.
