The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) is going global.

The NRMP, which has matched medical graduates with training programs in the United States since 1952, recently announced the launch of NRMP International. The new organization will “build new partnerships and design matching programs that meet the unique cultural and geographical needs of participants throughout the world,” NRMP Executive Director Mona M. Signer said in a statement.
 
NRMP International will use the same web-based software and matching algorithms as its founding organization to support medical matching programs outside the United States and Canada, according to the press release.

According to the NRMP International website, Abu Dhabi’s residency program application and match service, called TANSEEQ, uses the NRMP International’s match software.
