Unmatched Canadian Medical Graduates

An increasing number of Canadian medical school graduates will not enter residency and complete their training to provide the care Canadians need. In 2018, AFMC released a report with recommendations to address this crisis.

AFMC continues to advocate to provincial governments for 110 positions for each 100 graduates.

Faculties of Medicine across Canada are supporting medical students in their career counseling, decision-making around the match, and enhancing support for students unmatched after the first iteration and unmatched after the second iteration.

There are significant barriers to entering residency and AFMC is advocating for a more effective national approach to the match including a review of entry  routes to residency and a pan -Canadian resident transfer system.
