Postgraduate Program Report

CaRMS 2016: CaRMS 2nd iteration interviews took place on March 16th. A sincere thank you to all of the faculty, residents and staff that helped with the file review and interviews. There were many excellent candidates and I am very happy to report that we have filled all remaining positions.

In looking at data from the 1st iteration, CaRMS has indicated that 36.2 per cent of this year's Canadian Medical School Graduates listed Family Medicine as their first choice as a discipline.  This steadily compares to 38.5 per cent in 2015, 38.2 per cent in 2014 and 31.8 per cent in 2010.

Important Dates:

  • Resident Project Day will take place on June 8th.  We will once again be looking for faculty members to judge the oral presentations and posters on this day.  Resident Project Day is a great event in our Deparment and we look forward to celebrating the scholarly activity of our residents.
  • Resident Graduation will be taking place on June 17th.  Further details will be coming soon.
  • You have recently received an email regarding the awards that are given out at graduation.  Please consider putting forward a nomination to acknowledge the excellent work that our residents and faculty are doing.
