Can I apply to more than 1-stream of Family Medicine at McMaster – yes, you can apply to any of our FM streams

Do I need to write a personal letter for each stream I apply for - no; you will only need to write one personal letter, this letter would then be added to each stream the applicant applies to. It is suggested that the applicants focus the letter to the stream that they truly want to be matched to so that it can be directed to the appropriate letter scorers; the score from this letter will be transferred as well to all the streams they have applied to.

Can I submit my application to Family Medicine after the deadline has passed – no; all applications and documents must be in by the deadlines listed on the CaRMS website at

Can you review my Personal Letter and CV prior to the CaRMS interview, etc – no; this is not appropriate as there is a process in place that must be followed

Will I hear if I do or do not get invited for an interview – those that are selected for an interview will be notified; we do not notify those that are not/b>
