There were 177 positions left after first round. 71 registrants went unmatched. Total registrants was around 1300. As usual most unmatched positions are in family medicine. However, except for very competative specialties such as derm, opth, and couple of other specialties, positions were available in rest of the specialties. Even some ENT, emergency med. went unfilled. Except for the University of Toronto, all other universities had unfilled positions. As far as I know, American med graduates could enter into first iteration just like any Canadian student. I believe, it is meant for Canadians graduating from americam med schools. FMGs are participating in second iteration.

BTW, I was not a registrant, but I was very interested, because someone very close to me was a registrant. Check carms.ca

CaRMS posted those info right after the release of the first iteration results. For some reason they took those info off. Ian Wong reported that on his site on March 22, 2004. Address of his site:http://www.geocities.com/mdpremie/.
I copied (partial) the following from his site.

Attending Physician
I am a Canadian at an american medical school. Is it possible for me to match into Canadian residencies? Would I need to take the Canadian boards first.

Thanks

Yea, it's weird. I hope they fix this '' neurosurgery problem '' before I match :(
