* Eligible if Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
** US graduates are required to have their documents verified through physiciansapply.ca. This process can take several weeks/months to complete. Individuals are encouraged to visit physiciansapply.ca immediately upon notification of acceptance.
***Preliminary training in the US is considered accredited postgraduate training for the purposes of R-1 match first iteration eligibility. Applicants with previous preliminary training in the US are therefore not eligible to participate in the first iteration.
