MD Students Need System-Wide Action

April 11 marks the second and final iteration of the 2018 Canadian Residency Matching Service (CaRMS) process that “matches” MD graduates with a residency program at sites across the country, allowing these new physicians to move forward with a compulsory next level of clinical training.

We’re very pleased that 92 per cent of graduating MD students at U of T successfully matched this year to a residency program, including most who enrolled in our fifth-year extended clerkship program in 2017/18. But we have a systemic issue that requires focused and coordinated attention from all stakeholders.
