Canadian Medical Residency
Canadians who have trained in medical schools outside Canada and the US can compete for and obtain medical residency positions in Canada. Medical residency positions are very limited, so use our resources for the best chance at success.
The Path to Residency
In Canada, candidates for medical residency are matched to universities through an electronic service called CaRMS (the Canadian Resident Matching Service). To access the match and be successfully selected for a medical residency position, you need to establish eligibility at several points.
Participate in UBC’s Clinical Assessment Program
UBC is pleased to announce that in 2017, the Clinical Assessment Program was streamlined from four weeks to a one-day, mandatory evaluation. Completion of this standardized assessment is mandatory for all IMGs applying to UBC residency positions for CaRMS 2018 and beyond. Please note that if you participated in the previous four-week CAP, you will need to take part in the new one-day assessment in order to apply to a UBC residency position.
