QUESTIONS

What is CANPREPP?

A centralized program promotion platform designed to be a “one stop shop” where any applicant to a Canadian Residency Program can access information on any Canadian Residency Program. The system will allow programs to create a brief, multi-media profile which applicants can view and subsequently use to decide if they wish to pursue further information via links to websites.

Why was CANPREPP created?

As there will not be in-person activities for the class of 2021, it is essential for applicants to have the opportunity to find out more about the different residency programs across Canada.

Residency programs also have a need to promote themselves in order to highlight the strengths of their programs and communities as they look to select residents who will be the best fit.

What can I expect from CANPREPP?

As an early version, the tool will provide learners with the opportunity to access the national calendar of events and browse program pages. Future versions of the tool will feature increased capabilities and functionality. The vision is for this tool to be an interactive experience; while streamlining the process for resident matching (R1) both for programs and learners alike.

Who funded CANPREPP?

CANPREPP is funded by the CMA Foundation.
