Match rates for Canadian graduates of Australian medical schools

If you will be graduating from an Australian medical school, you will need to apply to CaRMS if you want a medical residency in Canada. Australian medical school graduates who have applied for a residency in the match have fared very well in the past.

So how good are the match rates for Canadians who have graduated from an Australian medical school you ask? According to CaRMS, Australia has the best matching success rate at 53% for any applicants applying outside of Canada. This is up from 46% in 2017.

What is the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS)?

The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) is an impartial, not-for-profit organization that provides a fair and transparent online process to match medical students and residents with medical residency positions throughout Canada.

Using the Match Algorithm, CaRMS matches more than 3,500 applicants each year to postgraduate medical training programs in Canada through four residency matches.

The R-1 Main Residency Match (R-1 match) for entry-level postgraduate positions is CaRMS’ largest match. It is also open to graduates from international medical schools who meet the basic criteria and have no prior postgraduate training in Canada or the US.

Why do Canadian Australian medical graduates have such a high match rate?

  • Closest medical education system compared to Canada
  • Similar health care issues to Canada, reflected in their curriculum and training
  • Cultural alignment between our countries
  • Australian medical schools are world-class educational institutions

Every year, OzTREKK assists hundreds of Canadian students choose the right Australian medical school program. We understand admissions requirements and application procedures to Australian medical schools, and we can guide you through the differences between undergraduate streams and graduate-entry streams, and the considerations for practicing medicine following graduation.

CaRMS announces new MCC examination data transfer function

Because CaRMS and the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) have developed a new feature within CaRMS Online that connects their online application platform to physiciansapply.ca, R-1 applicants will be able to connect directly to their physiciansapply.ca account where they can select MCC and NAC examinations to share with CaRMS and transfer that examination data directly into their CaRMS application. Once shared, examination data transfers in real time, which means applicants can see the results in their applications immediately!
