The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) is launching the 2015 Match Moments Video Challenge.
Match Day for the 2015 R-1 Main Residency Match (R-1 match) will take place on March 4, 2015. For medical students, Match Day is the culmination of years of hard work, and the Match Moments Video Challenge gives you the chance to celebrate this milestone by recording and sharing your match moment for a chance to win up to $500. The contest has been held annually from 2009 to 2012.
The Match Moments Video Challenge is open to applicants who submit a rank order list (ROL) by the deadline in the first iteration of the 2015 R-1 match.
Applicants can enter the contest at CaRMS.ca/match-moments any time between March 4, 2015 at 12:00 ET and March 11, 2015 at 23:59 ET. Videos will be posted online for public voting from March 12, 2015, at 12:00 ET until April 2, 2015, at 23:59 ET. The three videos with the most votes will win a prize.
The first place winner of the 2015 Match Moments Video Challenge will receive a $500 cash prize, the second place winner will be awarded $200 and the third place winner will receive $100. Winners will be announced and the top three videos will be screened at the CaRMS Forum on April 26, 2015, at the Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME) in Vancouver.
