Canadian Resident Matching Service

We Provide Professional Help In CaRMS

The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) is a national, independent and not-for-profit organization intended to assist medical students interested in pursuing residency training in Canada, with their applications to Canadian medical residency programs. After the completion of a medical degree, medical students apply through the CaRMS service to a variety of medical specialties. There are two main tracks available for medical applications.

For Canadian Medical Graduates (CMGs) and American Allopathic Medical Graduates, applying to CaRMS, you enter the “CMG” CaRMS stream, which enables you to be eligible for all CMG residency positions. International Medical Graduates (IMGs) and American Osteopathic Medical Graduates, you enter the “IMG” CaRMS stream, which enables you to be eligible for all IMG residency positions. There is approximately a 1:10 ratio towards IMG:CMG residency positions depending on the medical specialty within Canada.

May of our physicians have gone on to complete post-graduate fellowships, including, Critical Care, Trauma, diverse Surgical Fellowships and various Internal Medicine Subspecialties (Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Respirology). Our specialized approach to your CaRMS application allows our physicians to give you insight into what CaRMS program directors and CaRMS committees are looking for.

The CaRMS application is the single most important aspect of your CaRMS candidate profile. For many applications, the CaRMS application is the deciding factors of whether they will be successful in attaining a Canadian residency position. The CaRMS interview is a candidate’s only chance at showcasing their strengths and passion for their subspecialty of choice in front of the CaRMS review panel. Unlike medical school interviews, the CaRMS interview emphasizes life experience, career goals and suitability for the specific medical specialty.

CaRMS Application

Clinical Electives:

Your clinical electives describe your interests, passions and medical skillset. They are an important ingredient towards shaping your CaRMS application. Choosing the right elective is essential to being a competitive CaRMS applicant. MedApplications’ medical team will guide you on which electives to pursue in order to achieve your goal of residency matching.

Professional Training/Certification:

For many applicants, differentiating yourself from the crowd can be the difference of a successful CaRMS match. Candidates with advanced graduate degrees (MSc, PhD, MEd etc…) are encouraged to showcase these credentials on the CaRMS application. Additionally, credentials in ACLS, PAKS, CPR, NLS and other emergency managements can be useful if you are applying to high acuity medical and surgical CaRMS specialties.

Research

Proficiency in research is an essential skillset required of all medical trainees regardless of medical specialty. Showcasing your research is an opportunity to set yourself apart from your cohort of applicants. Research publications specifically will add tremendous weight to your CaRMS residency application.

Volunteer/Extra-Curriculars:

Preparing a well-rounded CaRMS application is an important technique to achieving success in CaRMS residency matching. Demonstrating an interest in your community and student body can help round out your application to your medical residency specialty.
