January saw the great success of our CaRMS 2020 event, which spanned over six days and two locations (Central DFM Offices and the Pembroke site). The immense commitment by all those involved was what helped make this important event a resounding success. We have some preliminary survey data that let us know the candidates thoroughly enjoyed our hospitality, from the beavertails to the welcoming staff and residents. Thank you to all those who participated, from interviews, booths and those who covered for colleagues while they were at the event. We look forward to receiving our match results in early March 2020! #matchyourpassion
