CARMS Residency Matching

CaRMS Strategy Session

At MedApplications™, we specialize in residency matching in the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS). Our dedicated medical team is comprised of medical doctors representing the most competitive medical subspecialties worldwide. Through a customized applicant to medical consultant pairing process, you will work closely with a medical doctor with first-hand experience in your medical subspecialty of choice. Interested in general surgery?

Work with a Canadian Licensed General Surgeon with expertise in residency matching successfully through CaRMS. The majority of our medical consultants have taken part in the CaRMS interview process and have first-hand experience screening CaRMS applications.


The key to a successful CaRMS application is strategic planning. For many of our medical students who graduated from our MedApplications™ pre-medical program, we again support them in their 1st and 2nd year of medical school in strategically planning for CaRMS residency matching in Canada.

Similar to medical school applications, the CaRMS application requires thoughtful and targeted planning. Our diverse medical team will assist you in planning your CaRMS strategy every step of the way. Interested in a competitive CaRMS specialty? Contact us early to ensure you are on the right track.
