    Breaking a signed prelim contract for a categorical

    Hi guys

    I signed a contract out of match for a prelim, and now another program is offering me a categorical position.

    Does anyone have this kind of experience? Is it possible to break a contract? and what to do to break the contract?

    Thank you

    You should probably just tell them. There are a thousand other people willing to take the slot!

    Absolutely!! I will tell them of course. I am just wondering if anyone went through that after signing a contract and what it means to break it... meaning can there be any consequences?

    There are always consequences to actions! You are burning a bridge, you pissed off a few players, you let someone down, you may have gotten an awesome advanced program with successful completion of a pgy1, etc.
    Are there legal consequences? That depends on the contract you signed and the fine print.
    Are there consequences to future matches. Well, unlikely since this was a "pre-match" offer from a program that apparently didn't participate in the match. Link: Reporting and Investigation of Violations - The Match, National Resident Matching Program

    You are absolutely right about burning bridges, and passing off people.

    But itís the kind of decision that whatever you do, you lose something.

    Thanks for your answer
