NRMP HQ, WASHINGTON, DC – Friday, medical students throughout the nation will officially find out where they matched for residency.  Reports are circulating on Student Doctor Network (SDN) and other medical student forums that hackers were able to access the actual match lists and post the results, three days before official Residency Match Day.

NRMP neither confirms or denies the leak

The National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) is confirming that their system was hacked into, but cannot confirm or deny if the match list was disseminated 3 days early.  Twitter and Facebook activity are already running rampant with tweets and posts.

Medical students, Erica Stevens, posted on her Facebook page, “Just matched at Mass General for Surgery!” while another student Ted Brinklers posted, “Baylor Anesthesia, here I come!!!”  #match2014 is bustling with tweets about the frenzy.

“I got on my IRC channel and some guy named Deathworm announced he’s got a hot list.  Nobody in the channel knew what the match was beside me.  Deathworm PM’d me the list and I started to tell my friends.  This stuff spreads fast,” an anonymous medical student told GomerBlog.

NRMP administrators are scrambling themselves to find out how to suppress the hacked information, but it appears that it is too late.  A partial list has been viewed by GomerBlog reporters and for the time being can be accessed here at SDN’s Medical School Forum.
