“With continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and to deliver a consistent message to applicants, ASRM is asking that as of today, all microsurgery fellowship interviews should be planned as all virtual for the upcoming match season.  Programs can start choosing their interview dates and plan for virtual interviews with the flexibility to switch to in-person interviews as conditions allow.  The final guidance regarding virtual vs. in-person interviews will be made in late January.”



The American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery (ASRM) sponsors the matching process and is responsible for enforcement of the applicable rules. The Microsurgery Fellowship Match is hosted and administered by SF Match.  Neither the SF Match office nor the ASRM sponsor or approve any of the participating programs. The function of the SF Match is strictly limited to processing of the match. Listing or not listing of any program in the directory does not imply any form of approval, disapproval or endorsement.
