  1. A system also exists currently for the IMGs to help provide more objective measures with the NAC OSCE grade being used as one criteria for selection as well as the EE (which I believe will be phased out) and some program directors are starting to prefer IMGs to have passed the LMCC as well as all IMGs providing transcripts for all of their medical school and often with their class rank being provided by many deans. Could something like this be done for CMGs. ?
  2. Most Img spots come with return of service. If those spots are opened up to cmgs with no return of service, could that create more of an issue for patient care in less desirable locations to practise?

    Unmathched Human Rights Complaint

    How does one match the unmatched cmgs who only wish to persue one of a few highly sought out residencies? How do you balance the need/positions available versus what the student wants to do?

    Of the many CMGs that forgo second round, are their chances higher to get into their number one choice specialty (ROAD)the following year in light of the number unmatched .?

    Unfilled carms spots

    After reviewing DermJuly2108PGY comments above..........it makes me wonder... With so many unmatched this year, will home schools favour their own applying to their local home programs who were not matched so that their stats after second round are favourable or will they truly chose the best person for the position?..will they chose unmatched cmgs over imgs where the img may be a stronger candidate for a program? So much beyond an application to consider. Hopefully the system will become more fair in the future.

    CaRMS Second Iteration Process

    Do family med programs like Dal do MMIs like they did in first iteration for cmgs who didn’t apply first round?

    Can cmgs apply to Dal family med second round if they didn’t apply and do mmi first iteration?
