Admission Process

The McMaster University Division of Ophthalmology uses the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) to process all applications to our program. Please click here to view the CaRMS website. To be eligible for the R-1 Main Residency Match, you must meet the eligibility requirements found here.

For further information on admissions, please see the McMaster University Postgraduate website.

The Division of Ophthalmology would like to thank all applicants for their interest in our program.

Important Dates

CaRMS provides a list of milestones or recommended dates to easily organize your application process. These dates are not deadlines but are recommendations to keep your application on track. The only real deadline for CaRMS is the rank order list - the date by which you must submit your ranked list of programs to which you are applying.
