What is the FM/ES Match?

The Family Medicine / Emergency Medicine (FM/EM) match has been renamed the Family Medicine / Enhanced Skills (FM/ES) match.

The FM/EM match was introduced in 2006 for applicants who completed or were completing postgraduate training in Family Medicine in Canada and wanted to pursue additional training in Emergency Medicine. The 2021 Match cycle saw the national participation of all Category One enhanced skills programs, so the match name was updated to reflect this change. The disciplines that joined the match include:

  • Addiction Medicine
  • Care of the elderly
  • Enhanced surgical skills
  • Family practice anesthesia
  • Palliative care (1-yr academic)
  • Sport and exercise medicine
  • Obstetrical surgical skills
