*There is no match for the Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship. This sometimes results in confusion on the parts of both fellowship applicants and fellowship programs because applicants may receive an offer from one institution many weeks before another institution has finished interviewing and starts making offers. Thus, SOAP and the Obstetric Anesthesia Fellowship Committee have proposed a “Handshake Agreement” for fellows entering fellowships in July 2015. In the Handshake Agreement, fellowships agree to send offer letters to fellowship candidates no earlier than June 1st 2014 for fellowships beginning July 1st 2015. Offer letters will stay open for five days unless individual-institutional regulations prescribe something different. Programs that will participate in the handshake agreement are listed as, “Handshake Agreement Participation: Yes.” Whether or not an individual program participates in the Handshake Agreement does not reflect possible future participation in a match.
