2021 R-1 Main Residency Match

We offer a post-match process after the second iteration of the R-1 Main Residency Match (R-1 match). This process allows unmatched applicants from the R-1 match to apply to any programs that are still considering applications.

Programs are not obligated to participate in this process. Available positions can be added or removed at any time. Once the post-match process opens, applicants can view which programs are considering applications in the program description directory.

There is no cost for the post-match process as no ranking or matching services are provided. Applicants who are interested must apply to available programs directly through CaRMS Online.

The 2021 R-1 match timeline is currently under review.

The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) Resident Matching Committee (ARMC) is developing a new timeline that will see some milestones and deadlines shifted later in the year to accommodate schedule changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. A revised timeline will be posted once approved.
