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.

Success Stories

Roxana M

McGill Medicine (MD)

"MedApplications helped me with both my essay preparation which brought me to the big interview and with interview preparation. MedApplication's services provided me with not only an insight of how to tailor an application to bring out the best of my ability but it also gave me the confidence I needed to survive the MMIs.

Jess B

Accepted to UWO Medicine (MD/PhD)

"I enrolled with Med Applications one month before my first interview. I had been preparing for interviews by reading books and discussing questions with friends and family, but I was still nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. I felt so much more comfortable after my session with MedApplications. My instructor was very knowledgeable and catered the session to what I needed work on (as I had both panel and MMI interviews, this was particularly beneficial). It was very useful to cover topics with someone who knew what to expect from an interview and could comment on the quality of my answers. All together the experience was extremely helpful and very reassuring; it significantly calmed my nerves during my interviews. There weren’t any questions I was surprised by in my interviews. I would definitely recommend a session for future students."

K. Y.

O uf T, UBC, McMaster

"I used MedApplications mock interview service because I wanted to practice and receive feedback from a current medical student. I found the mock interview helpful in identifying weaknesses in my answers and improving on them to make them stand out. I would recommend MedApplications to anyone who wants extra preparation to gain confidence for medical school interviews."


U of A

"I went into my first MedApplications session without a clue about what MMI's were or how to prepare for them. After meeting and practising with Eric and Kent, however, I learned all of the tips and skills I needed to ace the interview. They were incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging and their help gave me that extra boost of confidence on interview day. Thanks MedApplications!"

Hana W

University of Ottawa Medicine

“I was accepted at Ottawa which was my ideal school and my only interview. Josh was absolutely wonderful and definitely part of my success! He was very helpful throughout the entire process 🙂


Mother of a High School student for a Pre-Med program

"Hi MedApplications, just to let you know that Isabelle got an offer from University of London St. George’s College. The competition this year was quite challenging. We would like to thank you and Sarah for your contribution to this achievement. Your services are excellent. Please count us among satisfied clients.”

Matthew L.

McMaster University Medicine

"I used the MedApplications seminar and mock interview services before I had my interviews at Queen's and McMaster medical schools, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Their seminars were incredibly helpful in providing information about the interview process and ways to truly emphasize your best qualities in an interview. Their mock interview session was great as well as it gave me an opportunity to practice my interviewing style with a current medical student! If you are looking for a way to prepare for an interview as important as the ones for medical school, I would definitely recommend MedApplications."
