As file reviewer for a program, you will be asked review applications to a specific program.

Once the file reviewer set-up phase opens for programs, they will be able to create accounts for file reviewers in CaRMS Online.

All designated file reviewers will then receive an email from CaRMS with instructions on how to set up an account in CaRMS Online. However, applicant files will only be available for review once file review opens for the match.

A file reviewer can have two different levels of access to applicant files

Full access: File reviewers can view and print applications.

Read-only access: File reviewers can only view applications.

The number of file reviewers a program requires, as well as the program’s review processes, are typically at their discretion.
