Happy new year! What’s happening? I’m sorry I didn’t respond to any comments or messages through the Christmas holidays but I’ll work on them in the next couple of days.
So, now for my CaRMS 2019 update. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any interviews this cycle.
I did a Clinical Assessment Placement here in Alberta in 2018 and got a good evaluation report, so I was hoping that it would improve my chances of getting invited for an interview. Alas, that didn’t count.
I believe that MMI scores (organized by the AIMGA) also have a great impact on your chances of getting into a residency program. However, I don’t think that my score was competitive enough.
Going forward, I am considering several options:
1. Taking the PLAB exams.
2. Redoing the NAC OSCE to improve my score.
3. Attending a course to improve my MMI score.
Did you partake in the last CaRMS cycle? What was your experience?
