CaRMs releases data on R-1 match for medical students, physicians, medical graduates


The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) has released high-level data from this year’s R-1 Main Residency Match (R-1 match). Graduating Canadian medical students and international medical graduates apply through CaRMs each year in hopes of securing a post-graduate training spot. 3,422 graduating students and physicians were matched to residency training programs this year and a total of 2,850 Canadian medical graduates were matched to residency programs. CaRMS reports that 555 international medical graduates and 17 US medical graduates were also matched to residency positions, a marked increase from the 439 matched in 2022. The Government of Saskatchewan issued a statement noting that it is the “only jurisdiction in Canada to have all family medicine seats filled in the first round” and praised the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine for its part in this outcome. The 2023 CaRMS Forum data set is expected to be posted later this week.
