Virtual Opportunities to Support Career Planning

During the COVID-19 pandemic, some residency programs may offer virtual events to allow learners an opportunity to learn about their program and connect with Program Directors or other members of their team.

Please view the calendar provided here by the AFMC. This national web calendar of events links learners to sessions from residency programs across the country.

In response to these needs, AFMC has developed the Canadian Residency Virtual Promotion Guide that outlines general guidelines that pertain to virtual program promotion and applicant engagement for the 2021 R1 match cycle. The Guide was created by the Virtual Interview and Program Promotion Subcommittee of the AFMC Resident Matching Committee.
