VIRMP, also refered to as Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program is sponsored by the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians.
Students go on to the official VIRMP web-based system where they had to apply online in September of 2016. According to the official website:

My Own Experiences
When I was going through this process many years ago, I wish there were things I would have known before I started the process. You can read about that in detail here on this blog post.
I also recently shared my personal experience of my Internship year and why it sucked but was PERFECT for me.
