Canadian Citizens/Landed Immigrants

Applicants who have completed their medical education in another country may be eligible to apply through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) in Ottawa.  Further information can be found on the CaRMS Website.


External residents wishing to do an Out of Province Elective within the province of British Columbia must arrange their own electives directly with the specialty program or preceptor.

Once the elective dates have been confirmed, external residents will need to work with the Postgraduate Dean's Office on licensing.

Please do not contact the Internal Medicine office with questions regarding Out of Province Electives as we do not have a role in this process.
