    Going thru CaRMS and NRMP match simultaneously

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know whether it's possible for IMGs to register for the Canadian CaRMS match and the US NRMP match at the same time? I'm pretty sure Cdn grads cannot...but I haven't been able to find anything that stops IMGs.

    Cdn & US matches

    Anyone (Cdn. grads as well as FMG's) can register for both matches at once. If you match thru CaRMS, you're automatically droppped from the NMRP match; this is the case for most Cdn. grads since the results of the 1st round of CaRMS come out the week before the NMRP. But since FMG's can only go thru the 2nd round of CaRMS, we would actually find out the NMRP results 1st. I assume if you match somewhere in the U.S. you would then have to withdraw from CaRMS, but I'm not quite sure exactly how it works.

    both matches. which one goes?

    Stephen. I'll pose the same question that I posed out on the board.what if u get matched in the u.s and then later get a position thru carms.Is there any way u can get out of the u.s obligation without problems.Not trying to break any laws, just want the straight scoop.If it's not legal and there are all kinds of problems won't go there.But I want to do family practice and it would be infinitely easier to go the canadian route.Realise there is less of a margin this year but spoke to physician recruitment in newfoundland and they said that there will still be seats left open becoz a lot of canadians will jump ship from carms and apply to the u.s.What do u think.really would appreciate u r input since all u r advice is always on the money. thanx.

    Getting out of the match

    Rita,

    I actually had the same dilemma myself last year at this time, but decided to forego CaRMS since I'd already been offered a pre-match spot in the U.S. You may want to verify this with the people at CaRMS and the NMRP, but I'm pretty sure that once you've matched somewhere you're basically committed to going there, at least for the first year. I guess otherwise it wouldn't be fair to the programs....
