2025 Medicine Subspecialty Match

Reference documents are an essential part of an application, so the applicants who’ve asked you to provide one are counting on you to submit it on time so it can be processed into their account before it’s time for programs to review references.

You can submit references electronically through the CaRMS Online referee portal.

Please refer back to this timetable regularly, as dates are subject to change.

DEADLINE: Reference submission

References must be submitted by this date to give applicants enough time to assign them to programs before the opening of file review.

Referees can submit references after this date and time; however, this may impact the time available for applicants to submit complete applications to programs prior to the opening of file review on October 29 at 12:00 ET.

If applicants would like their references to be translated by the CaRMS-facilitated translation service, they must be submitted before the translation request deadline for references of October 23 at 17:00 ET.
