However some training programs have fewer positions than applicants and other programs don’t have sufficient applicants of interest for their positions.

“This represents 68 students who have spent on average eight to 10 years of undergraduate education to become physicians, incurring great debt, and utilizing taxpayer dollars to facilitate their education,” says Mel Lewis, a student affairs associate dean at the University of Alberta.

“There’s a lot of anxiety,” says Franco Rizzuti, president of the Canadian Federation of Medical Students.

Students compete with each other for a residency program through an application and matching process administered by the Canadian Resident Matching Service (Ca RMS).

“The tighter the ratio, the more variables of the playing field, the more challenging it becomes to match.” “Understanding why Quebec graduates don’t want these positions is key,” Bourgeault says.

By contrast, after the first and second rounds of the match, opportunities in family medicine, psychiatry and laboratory sciences (which includes different types of pathology) were left unfilled.

This year’s match also saw a slight reduction in the number of students prioritizing family medicine and more students ranking internal medicine, creating a wrinkle for students who could not have anticipated this shift and failed to give themselves options in their rankings.

From a broader societal perspective, those who track health human resources nationally say there’s no reason to panic: 68 unmatched participants is a small fraction of the nearly 3,000 Canadian medical students who took part in this year’s match, and the 64 positions that remained unmatched typically end up filled.
