When I Reached Out to a Residency Site About Opportunities, they Told Me I Don’t Need to Use OPRESCAS to Apply for a Position, is this True?

While the organization a resident wishes to work for likely can receive resumes and information about persons interested in a residency position, failing to advertise the position on OPRESCAS and having the resident apply for the position completely outside of OPRESCAS will make it difficult to register as there will be no record to link the applicant to the residency program’s OPRESCAS application and it could negatively impact the sites eligibility to seek reaccreditation as it has been a requirement for all residency sites since July 2017.

The resident registration form will prompt the resident for the CAS-ID number as illustrated below to allow the NCOPE staff to verify the program advertised positions and the resident applied using OPRESCAS.
