Part of the work we do at CaRMS is identifying trends, sharing data and providing the medical education community with the information necessary to make informed decisions about postgraduate medical education in Canada. We’re always looking for new ways to share this data with you, so we’re pleased to share a new resource we’ve created to house research reports on carms.ca.

This section will house in-depth data and analysis regarding specific aspects of the application, selection, and match process. The papers that will appear here could be prompted by questions we receive from clients and stakeholders, or from lines of inquiry identified by our in-house data services team.

Check out our first entry in this our research reports section below. We hope you find this content interesting, and we invite you to check back regularly for new additions.
