Applying to the McGill Adult Respirology Training Program

For those eligible to participate in the Canadian Medicine Subspecialty Match (R-4), application must be made via CarMS

General information about postgraduate medical education at McGill is available at:

All other applicants, i.e., those sponsored by their home governments, must submit their applications directly to the Office for Postgraduate Medical Education, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University. Visit The only international medical graduates we will consider are those who are deemed eligible by McGill University, either: 1) applicants sponsored by their home government; or 2) Canadian citizens/permanent residents already accepted by the Collège des médecins du Québec for future medical practice in Quebec. 

For the Adult Respirology Training program, we will consider applications only from applicants who have completed core Internal Medicine Residency training in North America.

(For sub-specialty fellowships in Respirology, applicants who have completed Adult Respirology Training elsewhere may be considered. For more information on sub-specialty training programs visit:

For applicants intending to begin Respirology training in July 2017, the application deadline is September 1, 2016. All applications must be submitted electronically.

We cannot evaluate or accept applications submitted directly to the respirology program office.

If you are applying to our program, it is essential that you follow the steps outlined by McGill for the various categories of applicants, e.g.

- residents currently enrolled in core internal medicine training programs at McGill or other Québec universities;

- trainees from other countries who will be sponsored by their home governments

- residents currently enrolled in core internal medicine training programs elsewhere in Canada or in the United States: Quebec Government has created a "special quota" called the Contingent particulier, via which we have been able to consider certain applicants  completing internal medicine training in Canada outside of  Quebec or in the US. However such positions are NOT AVAILABLE in Respirology for the 2017-2018 academic year.

After applications are reviewed by the postgraduate training office and the program director, suitable candidates will be contacted for interviews. No applicant will be admitted to our training program without an interview in person, in Montreal.

Thank you for your interest in our program.
