UBC RCPSC-EM Residency Program – 2024 CaRMS Interviews:
January 31 and February 1, 2024
Click HERE to view the full 2024 Applicant Timeline. Please note: All 2024 R-1 match interviews will be conducted virtually.
Important Note: As CaRMS classifies each of the four distributed program sites as separate programs, candidates must submit individual applications to each site. However, selected candidates will be invited to attend ONE interview with the UBC RCPSC-EM Residency Program that covers all four distributed program sites. As a result, candidates that do not apply to all four sites are less likely to be invited for an interview.
Contact us for more information.
Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to furthering Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in our CaRMS selection process and our UBC Emergency Medicine program.
We believe diversity is essential to developing excellence in our program and in our practice as emergency physicians.
We encourage applicants with lived experience of discrimination and from underrepresented groups in medicine to apply to our program.
Each of our selection committee members have received EDI training to conduct a fair and thorough selection process.
We look forward to connecting with you during the CaRMS cycle.
