CaRMS has strong relationships with the student affairs, undergraduate and postgraduate offices at each Canadian medical school. These relationships are essential for successful matches.
CaRMS receives applicant data from undergraduate offices, including the names of eligible applicants and their graduation dates, as well as supporting documents such as MSPRs and transcripts. The undergraduate office is provided with an online portal to facilitate the sharing of this information, as well as numerous CaRMS-generated reports designed to help the undergraduate office assist applicants throughout the match year.
The relationship between CaRMS and postgraduate offices is no less important. CaRMS receives information on the programs participating in the match, including how much quota is available for each participating program.
