Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited Core Internal Medicine residency program in Canada or an ACGME-accredited university in the United States. Only candidates who have completed three years of core IM training can enter subspecialty training in Geriatric Medicine.

Canadian or US medical graduates currently enrolled in Core Internal Medicine residency programs in Canadian or US medical schools as outlined above are eligible to apply. International Medical Graduates (IMGs) are eligible to apply if currently enrolled in Core Internal Medicine residency programs in Canada. Individuals pursuing residency training in the US and who have an MD from a non ACGME accredited school are NOT eligible to apply.

For further details, visit the Cumming School of Medicine or  CaRMS.

Paula Pearce (, Erika Dempsey (, and Amy Mahon ( welcome any enquiries or questions prior to application to our program.

All applications will be reviewed by the Residency Training Committee and suitable candidates will be invited for interview.

The interview day will consist of an informal meeting with faculty and residents, followed by a formal semi-structured interview where the candidate will rotate through a series of pairs of interviewers. The interview panel will then discuss each candidate’s performance and suitability for the program before submitting a rank order list to CaRMS in the usual manner.

We can take a maximum of 3 residents into the program per academic year.
