  • In addition to emailing offers, call candidates and/or send text messages.
  • Once offering has begun, check the SAP website frequently to see if
    • A candidate to whom you are preparing to make an offer has already accepted an offer from another program
    • A candidate to whom you have already made an offer has accepted an offer from another program. If that is the case, your offer is considered withdrawn, and you may immediately offer the spot to another candidate.
  •  Require candidates accepting offers to demonstrate proof of having withdrawn from NRMP if the candidate‚Äôs ERAS or other application indicates they are registered for NRMP.
  • Confirm that any candidates whom you plan to rank as first choices are registered for the SAP. Otherwise, that candidate will not be submitting a rank list.
