People obsess over what electives they took, and how many specialties they can apply to, with who they are doing research etc. and how it all gets interpreted by the selection committee.  All of these

At the end of the day a lot of these individuals applying to competitive specialties are none different than others applying to less competitive specialties. This uniquely holds true for Canada. In th

I disagree. What programs should evaluate is whether a given applicant would make a good/great Family Physician. I couldn't care less if they're applying to something else or not, and that goes to eve

beeboop the SK stats are alright with me! So many great docs and teachers here, I'd be stoked to do residency here, especially in Regina

looks like IM was way less competitive this year than last year as well. People were starting to really worry about that lol. 

Also jeez, nobody wants to go to saskachewan eh. So many unfilled spots across the board, ouch

what makes you say that? It doesnt look like theres many unfilled positions aside from the very undesirable locations (or return of service residency programs)

Wow, what is going on in Calgary?

11 (!!!) FM residency spots unfilled...

1 Anesthesia unfilled...

1 Vascular surgery unfilled...

 

And I'm looking at this list and envy those people who wanted to to FM or IM as first choice, and applied widely. You are virtually guaranteed to match on the first iteration, with a little bit of an open mind about where you would be willing to move to.

Isn't that the "normal" situation in CARMS though - as much as anything is normal. Last year was an outlier with IM but for most (again most isn't all) people in most years that apply to FM or IM broadly will get it somewhere.

I think the number of unfilled spots in a highly desirable city like Calgary is a very significant outlier this year. We have not seen double digit open spots in a top living quality city in FM for half a decade now.
