Recruitment Software for Graduate Medical Educators

Designed for Residency and Fellowship Programs

[RezRATE] was a huge part of why I ranked the program so highly!

RezRATE is designed to streamline Residency and Fellowship recruitment. Our web-based platform was crafted specifically for program coordinators, faculty, and candidates. RezRATE helps your team screen, scheduleinterview, evaluate, and rank candidates. RezRATE optimizes in person, hybrid, and virtual interviews! Let us show you why our users can’t imagine conducting interviews without RezRATE!

Work Together While Working Apart

Residency fellowship interview season is a busy time of the year. Having to plan for it during the complex age of COVID-19 can make the process feel even more stressful. We’re all faced with new questions: In person vs. virtual? Perhaps a hybrid? RezRATE does it all.

RezRATE is ready to help.


When interviewers and administrative staff are spread out among different worksites, RezRATE helps ensure that team members have the information they need exactly when they need it. Everything is centralized and easy to locate.


Minimize paperwork and hand-to-hand interactions between staff and candidates. Just quickly import documents and data into RezRATE and digitally share the information instead.


Keep interview season running smoothly, even when the unexpected occurs. RezRATE updates in real time so evaluators, staff, and candidates receive changes as they're made.

Be prepared to handle your interview season in person, remote, or both. All in one platform designed to save you time and keep things organized. Ask us how we can help you stay organized, distanced, and adaptable while putting your virtual or in person interviews on auto pilot. No complicated breakout rooms or manual notifications necessary!

Meet RezRATE, the one-stop solution for screening, scheduling, evaluating, and ranking residency and fellowship candidates.

Are You Ready for Interview Season?

Are You Ready for Interview Season?

Whether you use ERAS, SFMatch, or another match platform, RezRATE is ready to help you manage your Residency Interviews and Fellowship Interviews.

RezRATE was created because we understand how exhausting residency and fellowship candidate selection can be. Every year you have to screen applicants, send out invitations, coordinate schedules, compile informational packets, complete evaluations, organize feedback, prepare for and conduct meetings, and debate rankings. Making a good match takes time, but it’s worth the effort because each resident represents a huge investment your program is making in its future.

The annual estimated cost associated with training and supporting a single resident can range from $180,000* to $224,668**. Multiply that cost by each residency year and then multiply that total again by the number of residents you plan to support. The final sum might seem staggering, but it’s not unreasonable given all the ways residents contribute to a program’s overall success and reputation.

Because the stakes are high and candidate selection is so critical, you might be asking yourself:


The answer to all these questions is RezRATE, a suite of tools developed to help graduate medical educators make better decisions about residency and fellowship candidate evaluation. RezRATE consolidates all your information into one place and simplifies every step of the process, from the invitations to the final rank list.

This is our second year using RezRATE and we absolutely LOVE IT!! We are extremely pleased with this product, and we will continue to use it every year. We use it for both interviews and mock orals. Everything that we use to do manually is literally just a click of a button in RezRATE. The applicants and interviewers get to see their schedules in real-time and we just sit back and let the magic happen, it is AWESOME! They also help to customize things for our specific program needs and their customer service is phenomenal. You don’t get a recording; you actually get to talk to a live person, and they are always so kind, and fast to answer questions or guide me with anything I have questions about. Thank you for creating such an amazing product.

Here are some of the comments our program has received from our recent interviews:

“Smooth as butter, I cannot believe how easy RezRATE is to use”

“I love that RezRATE converts my schedule to my time zone”

“The interview process was fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Thank you once again for this opportunity.”

“Thank you so much for setting up an extensive interview session, with a meet and greet, trauma rounds, and formal introductions. It must've taken considerable effort to organize everything, coordinating all the schedules. The whole session was seamless and comfortable, loved RezRATE.”

“Overall great experience. Very efficient and low stress.”

“This is my first time using RezRATE for an interview and I have to say what an awesome platform.”

The Faculty and applicants love the program and we as Administrators LOVE it too, it has been such a time saver and it is fantastic how they have streamlined everything we do to set and run interviews and it is seamless. Thank you all again for such a wonderful product!

We have used RezRATE for interviews two years now and we are extremely pleased with the product. It really facilitates the use of our structured interview questions and the standardized scoring of them. Last year, RezRATE expanded their system to make it function for our mock oral board exams. The RezRATE system makes interview and mock oral exam days flow seamlessly without having to switch between interfaces. The interface is very user-friendly and in the rare cases we need help, the RezRATE team are always available to provide guidance.

This was our first year using RezRate and we loved it! RezRate saved our program so much time! No more creating a power point presentation for the rank meeting, no more creating paper evals, no more creating an interview day schedule – RezRate did it all for us! The applicants were very impressed and stated that the program was very easy to use. Our faculty also loved it and liked that all schedule changes were in real time and they could see the applicants’ information ahead of time. Also loved that we didn’t have to create our own Zoom breakout rooms – RezRate is definitely top notch and the support staff were always there for me when I had questions. Thanks!

This year we started using RezRate ( The software is solid and extremely helpful for PD's and PC's - from "digesting" ERAS to setting up virtual interviews. Highly recommended!

**I have no investment in this company. Just honestly think to be helpful**

I work in Residency Program Education and this is my second year working with RezRATE and I have nothing but great things to say about this program. The first year, it was a great timesaver, in terms of having everything you needed for Residency Recruitment in one place. No more creating individual folders for each interviewer for in-person interviews or making sure the information in ERAS was uploaded correctly. With everything being housed in one space, it cut down on a lot of the administrative time, so that I could focus on other aspects of the interview process, more focus on the applicants during interview season and not just the paperwork and prep work. The interviewers are able to see the applicants' information ahead of their scheduled interview, not just on interview day, and they are able to evaluate the applicants in the same system. The applicants and interviewers are able to see their schedules ahead of time and in real time. This is especially helpful when there are last minutes changes to the schedules. No more sending out multiple corrections. It also has the ability to submit your rank list directly to the NRMP. This year, with Covid-19, we had to have virtual interviews and, once again, RezRATE was a true lifesaver. When everyone was trying to figure out which platform to use. RezRATE came to the rescue and had already integrated Zoom into the RezRATE program, whereby, once the schedule was created, the program was able to set up individual Zoom links for each of the interview sessions automatically...something that would have taken several hours to set up on my own. It is such a great program and I will never go back to anything else. I also like that, depending on your needs, they are able to customize certain aspects of the program to meet the needs of your program versus you trying to fit into what's already there. I am excited to see what's new for next season and it is money well spent!!

This was our first year with Rezrate and it truly impressed me. We were still working off paper schedule, ERAS and Interview broker - Rezrate does it all and it made interview season run so smooth. Thank you for all the support.

The feedback received from the faculty has been glowing. They were asking how we found out about this program, why we haven’t been doing this all along, and strongly stating we should use this every year going forward! They were very impressed with the ease of use that translated well across all faculty levels including our most veteran members. Thank you for all of your help thus far in helping me learn the system and providing the needed materials to educate the faculty as well as the interview candidates on how to use the system successfully.

The whole RezRATE package has been AMAZING! From the ease of set up, streamlined applicant communication options, flexibility with the scheduling features, execution on interview day, superbly responsive system support service (I could keep going here), we are truly happy with the system and can’t believe that we’ve been conducting these interviews any other way. With all interviews going virtual and several options to choose from RezRATE provides the best possible experience for all participants and has certainly set the bar high for conducting virtual interviews.

Thank you for everything!

I just wanted to thank you for sending me the information for RezRATE and being so helpful and available throughout the interview season.

Seriously a life-saver in these ‘virtual’ times. I’ve gotten nothing but excellent feedback about the interview process, how smoothly things have been running, and how user friendly RezRATE is, from ALL parties (yes; faculty included!).

I always tell everyone that I am fortunate that you guys found my contact info, and am SO GLAD that I was able to get RezRATE implemented for our programs. I am not sure how I would have maintained any amount of sanity using only zoom, or any other platform.

The entire process from start to finish has been absolutely seamless.

When I started to assist my department with recruitment, I was a senior administrative assistant with no previous experience or knowledge about what the process even entailed. Thanks to RezRATE, I was able to sail through my first recruitment season without any trouble. I can’t begin to describe how simple RezRATE was to use and how responsive Mike and Carl were to my questions. Their software made it so easy for our team to view and edit candidate information. Everything we needed was located in one central place.

Having that stress-free experience was one of the factors that encouraged me to pursue my interest in this field. I recently completed my second interview season using RezRATE. This time, however, I was a full-fledged program coordinator! RezRATE takes all the time and worry out of a recruitment season. I wouldn’t want to do this job without it. I fully recommend this program.

I have been a coordinator in Neurosurgery for 11 years now and was dreading another interview season, until today… Oh my goodness! This is SOOOO great. I just ran across the printing of everything – candidate schedules, candidate name tags, faculty schedules!!!! Everything that takes so much time to do manually is all right there for you at a click of a button! And it all looks so professional! You will be a godsend for every coordinator across the country!!! It’s the one program that really is developed for the coordinator!

The following candidate feedback was provided to us by a program that utilized RezRATE to facilitate their virtual interview season. The prompt was asking what candidates liked and what they thought needed to be improved. There was no mention of RezRATE in the prompt from the program. We've heard similar stories from all over the country.

“RezRATE was great!!”

“Using RezRATE made the date SO easy and was so wonderful. I honestly loved the entire day at [Institution name redacted] and it was a huge part of why I ranked the program so highly!”

“I liked RezRATE more than Zoom and Webex software! It was so organized!”

“I liked the use of RezRATE!”
