OPRESCAS Application Harmonization

What is Application Harmonization?

  • Application harmonization recognizes NCOPE residency programs that have elected to synchronize their application processes using OPRESCAS.  This enables candidates to have a consistent timeline and helps allow informed decisions when applying to multiple participating organizations.

How Does Application Harmonization Work?

  • Each application cycle, participating organizations identify consistent dates for the following application events:
    • Application Open Date
    • Application Close Date
    • Extension of Position Offer
    • Period of Review for Accepted Candidates

What are the Dates for the Current Application Cycle?

  • Application Open Date:
  • Application Close Date:
  • Extension of Position Offer:
  • Number of Days to Accept/Decline Offer:

The above dates are fixed and may not be deviated from even if extenuating circumstances present for the program or applicant.
