Graduates of Canadian and LCME Approved Schools in the U.S.

All graduates of Canadian and U.S. accredited medical schools who have not had any previous postgraduate medical education should apply for Postgraduate Year 1 (PGY1) positions through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS).

CaRMS is an electronic application service and computer match for entry into postgraduate residency training programs at each of Canada's 17 medical schools. Matches are made in two rounds, or iterations. The first iteration is restricted to graduates of Canadian, US, and international medical schools who meet the eligibility criteria, while the second iteration is open to applicants who were not matched in the first iteration, or to applicants with previous North American residency training.
