Today, hundreds of Ontario medical students are receiving the first iteration results of the 2019 R-1 Main Residency Match. OMSA would like to congratulate our colleagues who matched today. We also express our support to all students who were not matched to a residency training spot. These results do not define you. Information regarding next steps including the second iteration are available at carms.ca and through your school's Student Affairs Office.

We also would like to highlight the support resources that have been put together by the CFMS.

OMSA has been advocating on behalf of all Ontario medical students to address the rise in unmatched medical graduates. We will continue this work at this year’s Lobby Day, to be held on April 8th, where we will specifically ask the Government of Ontario to increase the ratio of postgraduate residency spots to medical graduates. We expect to provide updates on our advocacy efforts over the next few weeks.
