Canadian Medical Graduates

All graduates of Canadian and US accredited medical schools who have not had any previous postgraduate medical education should apply for first year (PGY1) positions through the Canadian Residency Matching Service (CaRMS). For detailed information on the application process, please access the CaRMS website.

The majority of our postgraduate year one positions are funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health.  A few positions may be available for physicians funded by the Department of National Defence.  Position quotas and distribution must be determined by mid-February each year (prior to the Match).

Medical students in their final year apply directly to either family medicine or a Royal College specialty program at Universities across Canada.  This application process is facilitated by the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CARMS).
