How to Apply and Selection Policy

The CaRMS match

How to apply

Medical students and residents interested in applying to the Dalhousie neurology residency program do so through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS).

Selection criteria

We select top candidates based on academic excellence, clinical skills, interpersonal skills and other attributes such as research experience and extracurricular activities.

Selection policy

Preference will initially be given to Canadian medical graduates who have not had previous post-MD clinical training. All other Canadian citizens and landed immigrants will be considered through the second iteration of the CaRMS match.

International medical graduates must have passed the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE) and Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination Part I (MCCQE Part I). Among international medical graduates, preference will be given to those living in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or Prince Edward Island and working in an area of health care.
