CRITERIA FOR ALL MEDICAL GRADUATES

GENERAL INFORMATION As an outcome of Competence by Design (CBD) implementation in general Pediatrics training programs that began in the 2024 Pediatric Subspecialty Match (PSM), pediatric residents must do four years of residency training prior to starting their pediatric subspecialty in all provinces except Quebec.

As a result of this change, there are two consecutive PSM matches:

  • 2024 PSM: takes place in the fall of 2023 with a July 2024 start date; and
  • 2025 PSM: will begin shortly after the 2024 PSM concludes in November, with a start date of July 2024 or July 2025 for Quebec, and a start date of July 2025 for all other provinces.

For Entry in the 2025-26 Academic Year

The following policies apply to the 2025 Pediatric Subspecialty Match.  It is important to note that individual programs may have specific criteria that are used to review applications.  Applicants are responsible for reviewing program-specific criteria, as well as the provincial criteria listed below, to ensure they meet all required eligibility criteria.

Pediatric residents who will be completing their PGY4 training after December 31, 2024 are eligible to apply to the 2025 PSM match.

LICENSING BODY All matched applicants must meet the criteria for registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC) for postgraduate medical education.
SOURCE OF FUNDING Ministry of Health
TRAINING LEVEL ELIGIBILITY All Pediatrics residents in ACGME-accredited Pediatrics programs who are interested in applying for a Pediatrics subspecialty program in Canada will need to have their training assessed by the RCPSC in comparison to Canadian training. 

  • A resident who has or will complete their Pediatrics residency in an ACGME-accredited program in the U.S. will need to complete an approved PGY-4 year in a core RCPSC Pediatrics program in Canada to be eligible to apply for subspecialty training in Canada. The RCPSC assessment of U.S. training will establish what is needed during the PGY-4 year. U.S residents interested in doing a PGY-4 year in a Canadian core Pediatrics program will need to reach out to the residency programs individually and explore if this opportunity is available. 

OR  

  • If a resident is completing a PGY-4 chief resident year in an ACGME-accredited program in the U.S., the RCPSC assessment of training will establish if the resident is eligible for the RCPSC examinations/fellowship. For more information on having your training assessed, please contact Chantal Benoit at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (cbenoit@royalcollege.ca)
