Announcement: Second iteration of 2019 CaRMS results

The second iteration of the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) process was released on April 10, 2019.

More than 98 per cent of Schulich Medicine students have matched to a postgraduate training program after the two iterations. As in past years, the largest number of Schulich Medicine students (45 per cent, or 78 students) matched to Family Medicine. This was followed by Internal Medicine, Psychiatry and General Surgery.

Three students who chose to pursue the second iteration of the match remain unmatched. The School, including the Undergraduate Medical Education and Learner Equity & Wellness Offices, has been working very closely with these students and providing them with the supports they need, as well as assisting them with their future planning.

Unmatched students at Schulich Medicine do have the option to pursue a fifth year. The formal year-long course involves clinical and non-clinical learning and is overseen by a Course Chair who provides support and guidance to students throughout the full year.

All but two of Schulich Medicine postgraduate medical education programs have filled their positions. The unfilled positions include Neuropathology and a Family Medicine position reserved for a medical student in the Medical Officer Training Plan with the Canadian military.
