Previously Unmatched CMGs: Study

The Centre for Health Education Scholarship (CHES) at UBC is doing a qualitative study. If you are a CMG resident who was previously unmatched during your CaRMS application in medical school, you are invited to participate in this study. Individual 45 minute interviews will be conducted with current trainees. The hope of this study is that it will help shed light on what this experience is like as well as allow better understanding of the needs of unmatched medical graduates. Arising from this research, the Centre hopes they can inform future educational programming and policies to support unmatched learners. If you are interested in participating in this study please contact them at the email with the following subject line to address below and they will send you further information and a consent form so you can consider your participation in this study. To: ches.admin@ubc.ca; Subject: unmatched study.
