Spring is in full bloom and as the academic year winds down, there is much to celebrate (senior promotions!) and look forward to (graduation and an end-of-year BBQ)! If you didn’t catch it, I’m including a piece I wrote for the Temerty Faculty of Medicine on the primary care crisis in Canada, and solutions our department is putting forward to fix it.

Spring is here and with it, milder temperatures and longer days. I am almost tempted to put away my winter boots and heavy-duty coat—almost. This is also match season, a time of excitement—and trepidation—for the next generation of physicians in Canada. The 2023 CaRMS match results were announced on March 22, 2023. DFCM was very successful and ranked amongst the top residency programs in the country, filling all but two positions. Unfortunately, there were more than 250 unmatched family medicine residency spots nationally.
