Match audits

Process

CaRMS will conduct match audits upon written request. Requests must be sent to corporateservices@carms.ca, no later than thirty (30) days following the release of match results. Audit requests may be received from either an applicant or a program registered in the match.

A match audit will only review submitted rank order list (ROL) data, to ensure that the algorithm used to run the match did so correctly. The correct entry and submission of ROLs is the responsibility of applicants, programs and postgraduate offices. CaRMS is not involved in the selection process and therefore cannot audit the file review, interview or ranking processes completed by individual residency programs.

Confidentiality

CaRMS treats ROLs as confidential information. CaRMS will not release or disclose ROL information in any manner that permits individual identification of either a residency program or an applicant.
