Having reaped alot of advice from SDN, I thought I'd give some back, particularily since there's not too much about CaRMS. As a senior medical student, it is a good idea to do an audition rotation at the place you want to go. This can be costly, but alot of programs only interview those who have done electives there. Compared to the US match the deadlines for CaRMs are much easier, you have until november to submit everything. One point, each program has different formats, and questions to be answered on their personal statement (didnt realize this till 2 weeks before the due date). Interviews are generally held around the first week of Feb. Theres a set interview period, so you can only go to a finite number of interviews. This was exhausting, interviewing and travelling every day for 6 days, in the middle of winter. The interviews themselves weren't too bad, each place had a different format, but most were panel interviews with a faculty and a resident. Most places feed you, although not everyone .
