APPLICATION PROCESS

2019 Cycle Application Step by Step

as of April 24, 2018

An AIMG Program application requires submission of the online AIMG Program application, submission of the supporting documents package and document sharing through physiciansapply.ca. A new application must be submitted for each AIMG Program cycle that the applicant wishes to be considered. Applications are not rolled forward from cycle to cycle.

It is advisable to start the application process early to avoid difficulties in completing your application, e.g. to ensure enough time is available to book an English language proficiency test and receive official results in advance of the submission deadline.

NOTE: Online application and document submission deadlines are strictly observed. Refer to Important Dates and Deadlines for the relevant assessment cycle.

Print, carefully review and complete required forms for application submission.

NOTE: Incomplete forms, forms from previous cycles or incorrectly completed forms will cause your application to be deemed ineligible to proceed.
 

Form

From the AIMG Program Login Page, go to the NEW Online Application portal.  The first time you visit the portal, select ‘Create Profile’ and register for a user name, password and ID number.

Once your registration is confirmed, you can sign in and add or update information in your user profile through the ‘Maintain Profile’ feature.  NOTE: the user profile form is NOT the application form.

During the application open period, sign in and select ‘Start Application’. Answer the Program eligibility questions and complete the form. Review your application and ‘Submit‘.

  • Assemble required forms and paper supporting documents into a single “supporting documents package”.
  • Complete documents as requested, observing notarization timelines.

NOTE: Application packages containing documents not properly completed and/or missing required information and attachments will be deemed INCOMPLETE and the applicant INELIGIBILE to proceed in current cycle.

Obtain a bank draft or money order in Canadian (CDN) funds PAYABLE TO the University of Calgary in the amount of $350.

All applicants to the AIMG Program are required to pay a NON-REFUNDABLE application fee of three hundred and fifty Canadian dollars (C$350).

This fee covers processing of your application and supporting documents.
  • The full fee is due and must be included as a single payment when the application package is delivered to the AIMG Program office.
  • The fee is payable with a Canadian bank draft or money order made payable to the University of Calgary in Canadian currency.
  • Personal cheques are NOT accepted.
  • No receipts will be issued. It is the applicant’s responsibility to retain copies before submitting the fee.
  • This fee does not qualify as tuition. No T2202A will be issued.

**IMPORTANT – Application packages that do not include the required application fee in the form of a bank draft or money order in Canadian currency will be deemed incomplete and are not eligible for further assessment. If you do not have easy access to a Canadian banking institution you may need to investigate alternate processes to obtain the proper form of payment. These processes can add significantly to the time required to assemble your supporting documents package so please plan accordingly. Contact the AIMG Program office for further information.

Ensure all required documents have been granted sharing through physiciansapply.ca to the AIMG Program.  Documents must be shared on or before the online application deadline and remain shared until CaRMS match day.

NOTE: For further information on sharing documents, visit physiciansapply.ca

Ensure that all required paper supporting documents listed on the AIMG Program Applicant Checklist are in your package. Courier your document package, including application fee payment, to the AIMG Program office before the supporting documents package deadline.

Your application package will be reviewed by the AIMG Program File Review Committee (FRC) for completeness and demonstration of the eligibility requirements.  Failure to meet the exact requirements set out will result in your application being rejected in its entirety.

NOTE: The AIMG Program FRC will determine eligibility to continue in the assessment process.  Decisions of the FRC are final.

Once deemed eligible for the AIMG Program, apply through CaRMS for the R-1 Main Residency Match. Detailed instructions are provided on the CaRMS website. For assistance with your CaRMS application, contact the CaRMS Help Desk

Program descriptions for R-1 Main Residency Match positions available for this cycle can also be found on the CaRMS website.
