Demystifying the Resident Matching Process

Are my odds better if I apply to the school where I did my studies?

Sherrydene, McGill University

I felt like I was being listened to. I wasn't just a name or number and that was important to me. The medical curriculum can be really challenging and it was good to feel like I had support.

Mary Ann, McMaster University

It was important for me to return to Canada to continue my career. The competitive tuition played a big role, as well as, the opportunity to gain hospital experience immediately. All of those aspects made Trinity my first choice.

Seth, McGill University

I chose to attend Trinity for a few reasons. First was the caliber of the professors, both full time and visiting faculty. Second was the personal attention that would be available to me due to small class sizes. Another was the the quality of the clerkship program, all in US teaching hospitals, with no wait time to get in, as opposed to many other Caribbean schools.

Orett, University of Toronto

I liked the fact that it was a new school – the teachers would want you to do well. I wanted a school where students would work together rather than competing. I chose Trinity because it was not a tourist resort – there would be less distractions than other Caribbean schools.>

Catherine, University of Western Ontario

I chose Trinity because I could start right away, that was important to me. Starting clinical rotations in the first term and the small class size was not important initially but now I see the advantages – the Professors know me.
