Postgraduate Training

The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) is a non-profit organization that provides applicants with an electronic application and matching service for entry into postgraduate medical training throughout the country.


CaRMS does not set policies around access to postgraduate training positions in Canada. Medical schools offering residency programs work in close cooperation with provincial health ministries which fund the positions. Eligibility for postgraduate medical training is ultimately determined by each Canadian medical school.

Educational institutions in BC:

  • The University of British Columbia (UBC) Faculty of Medicine.
  • The University of British Columbia - Okanagan Campus (UBCO) Southern Medical Program.
  • The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) Northern Medical Program.
  • The Island Medical Program (IMP) delivers the University of British Columbia (UBC) Doctor of Medicine (MD) Undergraduate Program in collaboration with the University of Victoria (UVic).
