As a PGY1, are we eligible for US SOAP?

Recommended Posts

I realize there's a good chance people won't know about this (and likely nobody's even tried), but, assuming you've written your USMLEs, as a resident in Canada, are we eligible to try to transfer to a US residency through SOAP, like we're eligible to enter the 2nd round of CARMS?

Thanks in advance!

Just found a document saying you need to enter through the main residency NRMP match to be eligible? Does this mean my above question, the answer is no, and if so, are we eligible to enter NRMP?

US match doesn't have rounds, everyone just applies together. If you don't match then you SOAP. Current residents can reapply although they are looked at though a very different lens and usually need a letter of support from their current PD. Canadian applicants who are not US citizens/PRs will have limitations on visas, etc.
