What was the CaRMS Self-identification questionnaire (CSIQ) pilot project?

Working closely with several stakeholder leaders over 18 months, including Dr. Ian Epstein from the Dalhousie University Internal Medicine program, as well as the Canadian Center for Diversity and Inclusion, CaRMS introduced the CaRMS Self-identification questionnaire to the 2022 R-1 Match process, a document that programs participating in a pilot project were able to request as an optional submission from their applicant pool.

Beginning with eight test programs in the 2022 R-1 Main Residency Match, the CSIQ provided applicants with a safe and supported means to share personal details with programs who have introduced a diversity consideration into their selection process.
