    I'm couple years behind on this post, but still very very relevant. I've got a lot to say about the corruption in our system. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I'm happy to hear what others think. 1) As an applicant coming from a low SES background, the entire application process has been a nightmare. I applied to a total of 7 schools and so far paid $1473.13. Not including the $400+ for the MCAT (which is higher due to the low CAD value). My colleague applied to 11 medical schools in the US, spent a total of $540. 2) School applicant preference. Canada apparently has no set standards for general admissions, so each province is free to set its own standards. As you'll see with every Canadian school, each province heavily favours accepting students from that province. Ex) Applicants from Calgary need minimum 3.3 GPA to apply, on the other hand, applicants from other provinces need a 3.8 GPA. This is not strictly for Calgary, but you can see it on all other schools as well. It's ironic though that each school claims they don't have preference and review "high competitive" applicants....but if the standards are that drastic, isn't obvious? 3) "holistic process" bull. Each school in Canada is now claiming they're transitioning to a holistic process of application reviews. However, you can get rejected within 24hrs application deadlines for "failing to meet requirements". Holistic review of applications means, each section (personal statement, MCAT, GPA, references, experiences, etc.) is reviewed and awarded points, the total points at the end SHOULD then determine if you qualify for an interview. I will use myself as a personal example. My GPA was 3.78, not meeting the 3.8 of University of Calgary, my MCAT was 521, my references, experiences, and statement all stacked! The next day after their application cycle closed, I received an email my application was cancelled for failing to meet the 3.8 GPA requirement, but as part of a holistic process shouldn't my MCAT and other supporting documents make up for 0.02 points? Their website says Non-Albertan applicants need a minimum CARS score of 128, (and no minimum requirement for Alberta applicants), and I scored 132, but I guess it wasn't even reviewed? To my understanding, a holistic process would mean my other components would make up for where my GPA had lacked. 4) I'm a mature applicant, meaning I'm 29 years old and recently graduated. As a result of various life complications (that I don't wish to share in detail), I had to return to school later in life and finish my requirements. Because I've been out of school for so long, the MCAT was some next level wasabi in the throat. I have a wife and 2 kids, work full-time, and tons of other responsibilities. So, taking 3-4 months of dedicate to MCAT study was not a luxury I could afford. The $3000+ prep courses (more if you consider CAD value), was also something I can't afford, both financially or time. Yet with complete self study, limited access to MCAT material through the web, I managed to score what I believed to be a competitive score. Especially with schools transitioning to "holistic process", I figured I'd at least get an interview. 5) It's amazing to see the hypocrisy in the Canadian application systems. Schools are all claiming to be more considerate of scores, paths, experiences, and so much on SES, yet they maintain high application fees and are so quick to cancel/reject applicants. I understand schools receive anywhere from 1000-2500 applications and they can't review every single one, but each student has also paid their fees and is expecting a fair assessment of their application. 6) This is probably the most infuriating point...A PHYSICIAN IS NOT A SCORE!! Has a patient ever asked his doctor what his undergrad GPA and MCAT scores were? Seriously though, I understand you should demonstrate a certain level of competence to pursue medicine; extensive material, dense readings, complicated training, etc., but there is more to a physician than scores. Rejecting so many applicants for not meeting unrealistic requirements is basically shutting down a persons dream before they start (I say unrealistic because each applicant is different, life, experiences, story, etc). I'm not saying accept a student with 2.9 GPA just because he/she has heart, NO...But if schools want to set FAIR standards, requirements should be requirements for ALL applicants...PERIOD, regardless of province. If a student is within a reasonable margin of that requirement, isn't fair for them to AT LEAST receive some consideration, rather than automatic cancellation. 7) My final rant, quite personal. For privacy, security, safety, etc., names or schools will not be mentioned....A colleague has also completed his applications and awaiting responses for this cycle. The school he applied to has a minimum requirement of 3.7 GPA and MCAT of 126 (in 3 sections), when speaking to the school on the phone, they made sure to stress, "3.7 GPA and MCAT scores ARE FIRM, NO EXCEPTIONS!!"....(I'll add, I didn't qualify to apply because they don't consider Summer courses (even if it's full-time), which I thought was whack...but whatever). His GPA was 3.64 and MCAT failed to meet one of their requirements (out of the 3). Turns out, he received an invitation for interview...interesting. I forgot to add, his family doctor wrote his reference letter, teaches at the school....and is on the admissions committee. But I guess this makes sense and is very clear when you go to the emergency room, and get silly, uneducated questions about your symptoms only to be told they don't know what's wrong and if it happens again go see your family physician. I guess schools haven't yet realized that not everyone "dreaming of medical school" is actually "dreaming of medical school". Students who's parents are doctors are guided to the position, free of charge, just to uphold the family name. Students who have dedicate a life to medicine are....picking up extra hours at work so they can afford applications, applying everywhere, and "looking forward to next cycle". What a wonderful system we have. The ethical, moral, academic, compassionate, and genuine physician qualities are being replaced by a corrupt and ethically disgusting system. Since the people with power or authority are the ones passing through the systems and pushing their kids through the system, everyone else cruises by blindly accepting it, believing, "better luck next time". I genuinely and sincerely pray it changes for future generations of applicants. Canada is needs more doctors, yet the system is designed to restrict so many from being doctors (especially those from low SES). It's counterproductive, it's shameful, it's hurting many students and their limited finances, wasting a lot of time, and just sad. Let's see where it will go next year; I'm curious when AAMC will decide to add Music, Art, and Phys Ed to the MCAT because they demonstrate "physician qualities". Don't forget AAMC sells past material to prep programs. PS: if you think I'm writing this rant because I'm butt hurt for being rejected...I'm not. In fact, I didn't meet the minimum requirement for University of Calgary, but I was good enough for early decision at Harvard Medical School (god bless). I'm writing this rant because as a Canadian, (a low SES Canadian), I had to work 3 times as hard as many other students to compete/surpass them, but was still not good enough. I hope this reaches enough people or the right people and a real difference can be made. Bless all of you and I pray you all get into your first choice schools. PEACE

    Setting aside how insulting your claim is to many of my fellow colleagues... a simple logical answer would be that if WebMD is all you needed, then you should be able to diagnose among various differential diagnoses and provide comprehensive management for any variety of patients right now. Do you feel confident enough to see our patients for us? Furthermore, it's also clear you don't quite understand the concept of "burden of proof." When you make a claim/argument, it is not the responsibility of others to prove you wrong in the first place. It is your responsibility to provide evidence beyond doubt to support your claim first. So the question then is... where is your proof that GPs are only as good as WebMD besides your word? - G

    1. OP is lying. Harvard medical school does not have early decision. It's funny because OP chose Harvard (one of the best medical schools in the world) to make a case for himself but wasn't smart enough to actually make his lie believable by checking to see if they have early decision lmao. 2. UofC states many times in their application manual, admission podcast, blog, etc that the cutoffs are FIRM and do not encourage you to apply if you do not meet them so even if someone had a 3.79999999 that is still below the 3.80 cutoff. It's your fault you wasted $150 to apply there. They literally say DO NOT APPLY if you are below the cutoff. 3. I highly doubt the story that you made up about the applicant is true. Cutoffs are firm at every school. 4. IP/OOP cutoffs / standards exist for reasons, do your research. 5. Yes, IP applicants need a min of 3.20 GPA to APPLY. However, the average GPA of admitted students to Calgary was 3.85 last year. This is just like how Mac has the lowest GPA cutoff in the country (>3.0), but the average accepted GPA to MAC is almost 3.90, and literally no one ever gets in with anything under 3.50 unless they have a 132 and insane Casper. 6. Your lies and exaggerations in this story make me question your 132 in CARS, but giving you the benefit of the doubt that amazing CARS will give you an amazing shot at a few schools.

    I do not think Canadian family physicians are overpaid. The us is definetely underpaid. Yes, when converted in CAD us family docs make more. But you also have to take account for that you live in the US and spend USD. In desirable locations (cali, nyc), 250 k is nothing once you take out taxes and cost of living. So your spending power does not necessarily increase significantly. Second, there is way more medical legal problem and the stressors of being sued daily is a big negative IMO. Thirdly, in the US family med tend to be a dumping ground for the uninsured and medically complex. So patients often come with multiple medical problems that you need to address in 10-15 min in order to meet your "productivity quota" further exacerbating the stress. Then you bill their insurance/medicare/medicaid and pray that you get reimbursed for what you billed. Last, in many areas of us (east coast, midwest), there is no culture of going to family docs for primary cares. Many will goto specialist directly or goto internal med docs who specialize in primary care. So competition for patients may be a problem. Don't get me wrong, there are sweet spots for family docs in the US but they are not the norm. Things are changing slowly but overall from a lifestyle and income perspective I think Canada overall is better. When it comes to specialist who are procedure heavy (ie ortho) its another story entirely. source: USMD grad, working in Canada

    You don't need doing right, but medical ethics does help. I scored casper in the past and there were specific medical scenarios... if you discussed specific aspects such as benificance, justice and non-maleficence,e tc you definitely got higher scores than talking generally.

    Yes. Highly involved in my program when I went through. If you didn't have the residents support your application, you were dead in the water. Truth be told, the only people who matched where those ranked highly be the residents and the staff.

    Feel Hopeless

    no worries, whether you still try and pursue medical school is your prerogative. There are multiple people who have written the MCAT/applied 5+ times. It all depends on how much you want it/how much you are willing to persevere. I was simply replying to your post about possible future paths to take (which you can pursue, while reapplying to med how many ever times it takes, if you want to).

    Well I'll tell you what; I'm netting hopefully ~260k cad this year in my 5d/week practice. I average 35-40 patients a day in the GTA. This is after overhead projections. The job I'm looking at in the USA is going to be $260k USD Salary; 4.5 day work week; CME of $5k; full benefits; 401k contribution of 10k from the company; 4 weeks off; 12 paid holidays. Also,patient volume will be 18-22 patients a day with a 1 hour lunch break. This is in a MAJOR metro on the east coast; not NYC, but the DC area.........to me it's a no brainer...........to each their own.........and these jobs are a dime a dozen all over..........in MAJOR metros

    There is actually a simple ridiculous reason for this. When Canadian docs talk about how much they make, they refer to 'gross billings.' When American docs refer to what they make, its 'Net salary after expenses.' The reason is because we are business owners, and they are employees. Nobody takes into account that we have to actually pay our own expenses including malpractice, overhead, CME, retirement, benefits, etc. Also, nobody really takes into account the difference in currency. It's an apples and oranges comparison. Things have changed here in Canada compared to the 90's and early 2000's, we are definitely better renumerated than in the past.......................but to say we make more than US docs is laughable............

    So...GPA?

    Don't tell me to "come on man." Have you taken a good look through this forum? More specifically the accepted/rejected/interview invite threads? There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of people over the years that have been invited for an interview and admitted and many of them had lower stats than you. There are a sizeable enough portion with GPA's on the lower end who could only hope to be lucky enough to be granted an interview, and some of them do get in. What you keep doing here is nonsensical. For someone who is supposedly so well rounded and academically inclined, you need to get help.

    Being in your 20s

    You didn't read my post very well, did you? My entire point is that it won't fuck your marriage over badly unless you let it. It's all in your head. You're imagining an entirely alternate reality universe that doesn't even exist. One in which you don't get married and have this hypothetical life where you're sleeping with 2 new women a week. Ask yourself if this is rational. The only thing in your system is a misguided opinion that you should have done something else; you're projecting your current inability to enjoy your process & journey rather than focusing on some imagined result as a form of regret. But the definition of regret is literally the difference between your current situation and a completely imaginary scenario. Amor fati. Maybe you can get 'this shit out of your system' by splitting up with your fiance and trying to go become a playboy. Maybe. But you lose your marriage in the process. Or, more likely, you can meditate on how to be happy & grateful for what you have, and how to experience joy in the love you can develop for YOUR life, rather than some make-believe fairytale you're telling yourself. Stop wishing for things to be different. Let things be and make the best of what they are. If somehow that is truly impossible, then man up and end your relationship, but do not have any regret about it; you have to own your decision and take profound, relentless responsibility for it and all of the ensuing consequences. Moaning about it on an anonymous Internet forum doesn't, unfortunately, count.

    I know many people with high GPA's, high MCAT's, great EC's who have done multiple degrees and have been applying to Canadian medical schools 4+ times and have yet to get accepted. These people will make amazing physicians but are being shut out by the system every year. And you're telling me that someone with a low GPA, very low MCAT, and no need to demonstrate EC's in the application process, who can waltz into UofS on their first try, will be an amazing physician....that is enraging. Plus, as the poster above said if you don't even consider EC's / work experience /etc you can't give me the diversity excuse...

    I'm not sure why the consensus among some family doctors here is that we make more than down south. Even if you compare the 'average' salary in the USA of 225k USD(which is 300K CAD!!!) NET for an 'employed USA physician' with 'above average canadian billings of 375k CAD minus a generous 25% overhead which equals 262.5k CAD NET', the USA family doctor still wins out. And they get reimbursed for licenses, have time off, benefits, etc. The difference is that we are 'independent'; for whatever that's worth. IMHO, I still don't see how we win out in any other sense aside from independence and 'lack of insurance hassles.' Out of my residency class, 4 out of the 8 graduates went down South.
  29. 1 point
    Yea that's true; funny thing is, most family doctors there are 'employed' and they are still collecting ~$200-250k salaries plus benefits, all in USD. The really entrepreneurial ones who actually own their own clinics in the USA are still way better off with earnings of 300K plus in USD. But the insurance hassles are definitely there. The thing is, these are all 'net' income; after overhead. I'm contemplating an offer in the Philadelphia region; but the VISA issue is a drag at this point......we'll see.........comfortable either way; but actually feel the tax situation here will get worse after October 21..........

    Well I don't want to talk about your marriage dynamics but for me once I found the person I deeply care about, none of that other stuff really mattered. I've been with 3 girls total in my life and with my fiance now, nothing else really matters except her and our life together, and this isn't just limited to sex, but literally everything. I had a rough few years when I first started medschool but I've been really happy for the past 2 years with her, so for me my "body count" is much less relevant than my happiness.

    No, because the overhead is lower. The rental cost pushes higher overhead, and I assume that employees in Vancouver expect to get higher pay given the insane cost of rent in downtown. The same thing applies to other major urban cities. Of note, B.C is one of the lower paying provinces after Quebec for family medicine. In other provinces, if you are efficient and do some inpatient or find a clinic with lower overhead, you can make 300 K easily as well. A lot of GP work part time: i.e 3-4 days per week with no evening/overnight and weekend duties; and hence the overall CMA lower GP pay. Overall, people choose family medicine for the flexibility, lifestyle and great job market that other specialties don't offer. So overall, my FM colleagues are not very "keen" on making more money rather than living comfortably. If you are an efficient physician seeing > 30 patients per day, and doing some other side inpatient work, you will get very well remunerated as a Family Physician.

    Can't keep up in medschool

    If you don't feel comfortable that's okay too! Here's my take on the situation: - You're not alone in this - many people have approached me and felt overwhelmed by coursework. Your feelings and concerns are 101% valid and the transition from undergrad --> med is a huge one, regardless of old vs. new curriculum. - One thing to be cautious when comparing alone-studying time with 2nd years is that 2nd years have more lecture hours because they don't get Tuesdays off (and I heard it's a 9-5 for them). Therefore, if they say they go home and study 3 hours after 8 hours of lecture, that is the same as you going to 4 hours of lecture and then studying 7 hours at home. In the end the material is the same, only our year has more self-study content in the form of IL's whereas people from the traditional curriculum would have learned this by sitting in lecture halls. - I think the 6 hours on IL's per week really got a lot of people's hopes up and I'm not going to sugarcoat that. However, I want to ask you, do you think a med student should realistically only expect to spend 6 hours per week to study outside of class (in a curriculum where lectures are minimal)? I feel many people don't even have that luxury in undergrad. - Lastly, SAME on the lack of time to review lol - I think it's again a transition of study strategies: since 70% is a pass, we have to prioritize the main idea of each lecture; we can't afford to memorize everything like in undergrad. For example, I think knowing how neuromuscular junctions operate (from action potential --> muscle contraction --> relaxation) is much more important than memorizing what all the minerals do in the nutrition IL, although the latter will take much longer, it is simply low-yield information that I wouldn't worry about unless I have extra time (in my dreams). Similarly, knowing how different modes of inheritance work is much more important than memorizing all the nitty-gritty details from that monster embryology IL (cue the Joker meme that guy posted last night...). I hope this helps.

    Federal Election 2019

    Well thanks for calling a bunch of people on this forum "racist". If people don't support funding towards refugees or immigrants but rather have that money towards our veterans or infrastructure, its racist correct? If people don't agree with Liberal policies and ideas, its racist. No, I don't support having Trudeau hanged/jailed/etc. but I don't want to see him in office anymore. He raised taxes, butchered foreign relations, involved in a corruption scandal and spends money like it grows on trees. He doesn't want to deal with the illegal asylum crossings throughout Canada, which is a big issue in my riding. I'm an immigrant from the middle east (Lebanon) and my parents worked hard to pay for the immigration fees, interviews, etc. We were not allowed to come to Canada until we had clearance and papers from the Canadian government. Meanwhile, some people from Africa/Middle East just hop on a plane to the US, take a taxi to the border and walk over. How is that fair? Clearly, they can afford to pay the immigration fees and go through the legal process but instead, they get housed in hotels, get medical care before they have their asylum hearings. It pains me to see that. And quite frankly, immigrant mentality has contributed to people having harsh views about immigrants. No we don't take their jobs but we do bring problems such as ridiculous driving and fake driving schools, contributing to high insurance rates in some places (ex. Brampton). The conservatives don't have a strong plan on climate change and I've been working hard to raise this issue with my MP. But to label most conservatives as racist is something I would have to disagree with. On a side note, do you label most of Quebec as racist since they support Bill 21? Even though they vote liberal federally?

    Casper Guide

    Hi All, Soooo now that i got into medical school I really wanted to give back to the premed 101 community and share some of my experience with other people on this forum. I thought I would post a thread about how I prepared for my Casper test this year to answer some of your questions. I started roughly 2 months in advance 1) Read doing right... i read the whole thing and talked out-loud about the case studies in the books with friends/family 2) I would play with typing websites (i.e. typeracer) to speed up my typing 3) I bought Astroff practice tests and other practice tests and did about 8 of them... In my opinion this really helped me with timing and articulating my thoughts... I reviewed the tests and my answers with friends/ med students to get their feedback on what they thought 4) Prepare a document answering the following questions to help brainstorm for the personal stations Note: These questions are random things I came up with/ got from other resources... it is a good idea to just think about significant situations in your life where you learnt/ grew in some way... below are guiding questions: A time you dealt with conflict what are your strengths/ weaknesses a time you had a conflict with authority a time you collaborated effectively a time you lost your integrity a time you felt awkward future goals a time you demonstrated professionalism overcoming a difficult situation when you were unjustly criticized a time you took initiative were asked to do something that conflicted with your values a role model you have brainstorm about how you support others in difficult times a time you failed That is pretty much how I prepared.. I am open to answering as many questions as I can you can PM me or comment below Some useful links: Websites and Resources: Free practice test on this website: https://www.apetest.org/us/product/casper-sim-for-the-mind/?c=f64cca7c8fbc Casper sample questions: http://www.caspertest.com/casper-sample-questions/ http://bemoacademicconsulting.com/casperprep http://www.caspertest.com/casper-sample-questions/ Really good advice and link to practice tests: http://www.mockcasper.ca/casper-guide/ Bioethics link: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/eppp-archive/100/201/300/cdn_medical_association/cmaj/series/bioethic.htm Sample videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWfDgu8nIF0 http://www.medhopeful.com/archive/mcmaster-casper-2012-4-sample-videos-and-my-thoughts/
