Indigenous Applicants: 

At the present time, CaRMS does not have a self-identification process for Indigenous applicants. The Queen's Department of Family Medicine is committed to the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Calls to Action on Health. For this reason, we encourage Indigenous applicants to our residency program to self-identify as Indigenous using their personal letter in the application process. This information will be used to determine application stream, and to identify ways in which the residency program can connect Indigenous residents to Indigenous-specific resources and supports.

We also encourage Indigenous applicants offered interviews to self-identify when selecting interview dates. This information will be used to determine interview stream, and will also identify ways in which the residency program can connect Indigenous residents to Indigenous-specific resources and supports.
