Overview of the CASPR Cycle

  • Beginning in April, CASPR collects information from all CPME approved residency programs. This information is compiled into a directory, which is published in July.

  • Applications open in August and applicants can begin designating programs after paying the application fee.

  • In November, completed applicant files are distributed electronically to the programs. Via CASPRweb, programs can inform students when their application is complete and if a personal interview has been granted.

  • In January, the majority of programs participate in the Centralized Residency Interview Program (CRIP), a service provided by AACPM.

  • Ranking forms for the Match open to both students and residency programs in late January.

  • The computerized Match takes place in March. Results are distributed to programs and students instantaneously via CASPRweb.  At this point, the CASPR cycle is complete.  Any further contact is directly between the residency programs and applicants.

  • Match Week Begins with MP II, the offer and acceptance of unfilled positions within six rounds. MP II provides an opportunity for unmatched applicants to find a position.
