CaRMS online Interview Scheduling

Recommended Posts

What's with this online thing? I've received two emails regarding this today. Is this a new system that Carms has implemented this year for scheduling IM interviews? I did not receive an email of this sort last year, so I'm a little confused.

I just re-read the email and realized that it applies for all interviews. The reason I thought it was for IM was b/c the email mentions smthg abt IM specifically and also b/c of the timing....most IM invites/rejections will be out Jan 5/6th.

 

I hope this email is an indication of good things (ie: invites) to come!

Are you sure it's not just for IM? None of my interviews are showing there.

 

None of my other ones are showing up either. I'm guessing it is just for IM.

 

So, this IS in fact a new thing that Carms has introduced this year?

This interview scheduling tool (http://dom.lhsc.on.ca/carms/) was co-created for all Internal Medicine programs across the country.

 

If one IM program is interested in interviewing the applicant, he/she will receive a notice to log on to schedule/confirm their interview. If multiple IM programs are inviting the applicant to an interview, multiple interview requests will appear after log-in.

 

A new feature has been added this year. McGill is using the service for all of its programs in the R-1 match. This is causing some confusion, since applicants receiving an interview request from a non-IM programs at McGill are assuming that this will be the only interview they will receive in that discipline across the country. This is not the case. All programs at medical schools, other than McGill, are still responsible for coordinating their interviews outside of this service.

 

Please note, this is not a CaRMS service.

Question: if you wee to have already scheduled your interview with the program at McGill, do you have to go through this service again?

When they say it will open on Jan. 6 for booking interviews, do they mean 12 a.m. on Jan 6 or sometime in the morning?

 

Wondering the same thing myself. I would guess that the following times are possibilities - 12am, 8am, 12pm - so I will be checking at those times but I have no idea what is more likely. Has anyone heard anything from last year?

I cant even sleep. I dont understand, I did electives at UofT they told me they will interview me, I got no Interview from them. But UoO and Manitoba send me Interviews and McG. I dont understand whats going on. This Year is so weird. I have so many poster presentation in Genetics, Geriatrics.......I dont know whats going on.

 

My CV has mistakes, my personal statement has typos. I swear if I match, it is like how I got my drivers licence and passed the red light. Still no accident or any tickets [knock on wood] but I will be a legend in my School I think. Everyone tells me no to stress, I really appreciate this. but really need to sleep, i hate being on call, I wish I never found this site.

Woah dude, seriously you need to relax. The overall match rate is >95%, and I gather that you have backed up with family med. Maybe just spend a little less time stressing out and a little more time working on your sentence structure and grammar before your interviews and something will work out.

Copied from emails and the online scheduler

 

The Interview Scheduling system at http://dom.lhsc.on.ca/carms does NOT include all Universities/Programs across Canada. I have added a link to show all the participating Universities/Programs on the web page. If the University/Program is not listed you will have to contact that university for your interview.

 

Each University/Program are responsible to activate their university to accept interview scheduling. Under the column Web Page Active? if it says No then you will not be able to click on the university name. If it says Yes then click on the unversity name and select your interview date/time.

 

If no universities are listed or a university you feel has or should be accepting you for an interview you must contact that university to select you as a candidate. The Internal Medicine programs will be activating their sites for interview selection at the end of the week other programs may activate on different days.

This is ridiculous, this has to be fake. Reading through Man_2ba's posts are quite entertaining, but come on buddy, enough is enough.

As a PSA for those who check here before the online system itself (not sure why) - each school seems to be coming online individually, some were up at 8am and some 8:30am, most seem to be up by now.

 

Happy scheduling!
