Match Process

MTIMPM information

Overview

The majority of colleges, universities and hospital-based Clinical Practicum Programs in Michigan participate in the MTIMPM Match Process. This process allows placement of CLS/medical technology applicants based on the applicant rating of hospital-based Programs and the hospital-based Program rating of applicants. ALL aspects of the MTIMPM Match Process are strictly CONFIDENTIAL.

Match PROCESS

Each applicant and Hospital Program completes and submits a Preference Form to MTIMPM. Then a computer program matches up the applicant with a Hospital.

Scenario #1:

 

Scenario #2:

 

Scenario #3:

 

Scenario #4:

 

 

If the applicant DOES NOT rank a Hospital Program on their Preference Form, placement WILL NOT occur regardless of how the Program ranks the applicant. The applicant's Preference ranking ALWAYS takes precedent. The applicant benefits with the MTIMPM Match Process:

The applicant determines whether they do or do not want placement in a hospital-based Clinical Practicum Program.

Notification of applicant placement at a hospital-based Clinical Practicum Program is released on a universally accepted date in Michigan.

The applicant's SIGNATURE on the PREFERENCE FORM indicates understanding of the MTIMPM Match Process and ACCEPTANCE of the position at the Program in which they are placed. After the MTIMPM Match Process, a Hospital can contact their university advisor or MTIMPM to permit a hospital-based Clinical Practicum Program with a vacancy to consider them.
