  • The DFCM program has 3 Family Medicine residency streams you may apply to separately through CaRMS:
    1. Greater Toronto Area (GTA)

    2. Barrie or Newmarket

    3. Rural.



  • The same application should be submitted for each stream to which you apply. Only one application will be reviewed.
