Over an 11-year period (2010 – 2020), we asked Canadian medical graduates in the R-1 Main Residency Match a series of questions about their interview experiences through our annual post-match survey.

Their responses are categorized into three areas: interview attendance, interview costs, and interview schedules. Visit each section to see the data.
