CaRMS Residency Matching Strategy

Personal Statement and CV Review

The CaRMS application is the single most important element of your CaRMS residency profile, providing program directors and CaRMS residency committees with a snapshot into your accomplishments, passion for their medical specialty and genuine interest in their program.

For many applicants, it is not feasible to physically visit each residency program nationwide, or meet with the influential faculty in any given location or residency program. As a result, your CaRMS application is your one and only chance to showcase your strengths, accomplishments and suitability for your medical residency program of interest.


MedApplications™ provides you with a diverse medical team of professionals representing the top medical specialities in Canada. With our vast experience serving on CaRMS residency committees, we provide you with in-depth review, analysis and editing of your CaRMS personal letter and Curriculum Vitae.

You will be paired with a medical doctor with specific expertise in the area of speciality in which you are applying. This level of specificity for CaRMS applications will enable you to confidently produce an exceptional and competitive CaRMS application.
