Applying for Residency 

After medical school, medical students continue into a postgraduate training program for two to six years, depending on the length of the training program. Residency training leads to certification by either the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada or the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

Medical students are matched to training programs through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS). CaRMS provides a transparent and simple way to apply to the best training program to meet each resident's career goals.

CaRMS houses a comprehensive list of residency training programs throughout Canada. Each match outlines application deadlines, application documentation required, course curriculum and training sites as well as program contact information.
