It is organized by the Program Administrators, especially Program Administrator - Core (Training Schedules and CaRMS schedule) (see that page also for some process details).

Costs are paid by the Practice Plan.

The Department of Internal Medicine will pay, using practice plan funds, for reasonable costs associated with holding the CaRMS interviews:

  • Cardiology will have travel expenses to Toronto paid for by the practice plan.
