Fantastic service, and worth the subscription. A great bridge between those who need residents, and residents who need programs! Well organized, intuitive and simple. Really all that can be desired in such a site.

More than swaps, it’s also off-cycle openings!
In Sep 2022 just two days after my kids left for University, I suddenly received several emails and texts from ResidentSwap that a position that meets my criteria had opened up. I had been on the site previously looking for preventive and occupational medicine positions on west coast. I registered immediately and found an off-cycle opening in Occupational and Environmental Medicine was available locally, to start in January. All of the application instructions were described in detail, and I submitted everything ASAP.
YES I got an interview. YES I got the position. So thrilled to start and not have to wait for regular application cycle, which would’ve been more pricey than the service.

Thanks, guys!

"...I signed up for resident swap, because it seemed like thats what people do in these situations. A few days later an alert was sent to me saying spots had opened. I sent in my information right away. I received a phone call later that week (the week after match week) I had been selected for a prelim surgery spot also in Massachusetts. I had been given another chance..."
