2022 Recruitment update: CaRMS interviews are proceeding in a virtual format again in 2022 (and 2023). The CaRMS recruitment dates are rapidly approaching.  This is always an exciting time of year where we have the opportunity to show our enthusiasm and demonstrate to applicants why this is a great residency training program.

We have held a number of virtual information sessions for applicants as well as a Resident Q&A session, and many individual sites have or will be hosting vitual site Q&A sessions for applicants.  All these sessions held so far have been very well received by the applicants to our program and we thank everyone who has been participating in these sessions! 

We really can’t run our massive CaRMS recruitments each year without your help and we thank you for the strong response we’ve received from our faculty and residents. There is a virtual CaRMS interviewer orientation on Wednesday, February 23rd at 1:30 p.m.
