    • If you receive an offer from your top choice, let the program director know as soon as possible and decline all other offers so that other applicants may be given offers.
    • If you do not receive an offer on December 4, you may receive one later in the week or the following week(s) as programs go through their list of applicants.
    • As positions get filled, the status of programs will be updated on the OMFC website so you can see where there are still openings.

  • Note:

    • Obesity Medicine fellowship programs do not participate in the Medical Specialties Matching Program; therefore, it is likely that some programs will make offers after December 4, as many candidates apply to multiple programs.
    • Individual programs may choose to accept applications after the deadline, if necessary, and may request additional information from applicants.
