CASPR CRISP Schedule
The CASPR CRISP Schedule provides you with a timeline for the CASPR cycle including important deadlines you need to meet. We suggest you download a copy and add important dates to your personal calendar.
CRIP – 2021 CRIP is cancelled
The Centralized Residency Interview Program (CRIP) is a combined interview event for residency candidates and residency program selection committees. Over 6 days, the majority of CASPR residency programs attend to interview applicants. CRIP is divided into two sections, in order to accommodate all the residency programs. CRIP saves time and money for both applicants and programs.
CRIP 2021 is cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
ABOUT THE MATCH
CASPR uses a mathematical algorithm to place applicants into residency positions. Research on the algorithm was the basis for awarding the 2012 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences.
To make the algorithm work best for you, base your rank order list (rankings) on your true preferences, not on how you think you will match.
Throughout the CASPR cycle, informational webinars are offered to help you understand and navigate key steps of the application, interview and match processes.
Check back here for webinar dates and times. Recordings of each webinar are also posted here when they become available.
