As the ranking period for the 2019 R-1 match approaches, we know both applicants and programs are already thinking about the decisions they’ll need to make. As you consider your choices, you may have questions about the best way to structure your rank order list (ROL), and what exactly the Match Algorithm does with your ROL once you submit it.
Just in time to answer these questions, we’re excited to share CaRMS’ Match Algorithm video. This short animated video lays out the basics—including what information goes into the algorithm and how it uses those inputs to create optimal match outcomes.
Want to know more? We’ve got you covered with our Algorithm FAQs. In November, we reached out to learners and faculties to ask what algorithm questions they wanted answered. We used the more than 260 responses we received to build a comprehensive FAQ bank that covers everything from strategy and best practices to how the algorithm processes couples ROLs and other specific “what if” scenarios.
Visit our carms.ca/algorithm today to find out more about the algorithm, how it works and what it means for your match experience.
