This year, three out of four Ontario medical students voted for physician services planning and the unmatched medical graduate as their top policy priority. On April 9th, 2018, over 60 medical students met with MPPs at Queen’s Park, where we advocated for our peers who were not matched to a residency position this year, and in years past. Today, OMSA is very pleased to support the Ministry of Health in announcing that additional funding for residency positions will be made available for all Ontario medical graduates who have not matched since 2012. We are very happy that these positions will be available for our peers who were not matched in the 2018 CaRMS iteration, for entry into residency on July 1st, 2018. We look forward to further working with the Ministry to ensure our physician services planning system is one that is suitable for our peers and future patients.
