How To Apply

Choosing a University for your residency is an important decision and you will want to gather as much information as possible to help you make the decision that is right for you.

Interested Medical Graduates will apply to our program through CaRMS - the Canadian Resident Matching Service. Further information on the application process, deadlines and how to rank McMaster as your first choice can be found on their website at

Please note, McMaster Family Medicine has a centralized admissions process requiring only one personal letter and one interview (in Hamilton) regardless of the number of streams in our program that you apply to.
