  1. Internal Medicine is not just an extra 3 years in residency, it is a grueling 3 years and with the stress (maybe a bit less) of matching to a subspecialty for CARMS
  2. Does anyone know how the match works for these specific sites? Are all UofT applicants lumped into 1 pool, and then just matched to a site based on their ranking or is there a separate ranking process for the Barrie/Newmarket streams specifically? According to CARMS, attendance at only 1 Interview & Information Session is required if you apply to 1 or more of the three geographic streams: GTA, Barrie or Newmarket, or Rural. I'm assuming if it's 1 interview for all applicants, people who do electives at Barrie/Newmarket are not at any advantage compared to those who do electives at UofT downtown sites?
  3. 100% agree, internal seems very interesting, but looking at the residents - most of them admit that residency is the worst years of your life. I'm sure it's worth it in the end, but don't know if 5 years of working hard and 80 hour weeks is worth it?
  4. Thank you this is very helpful. Definitely something I want to consider in the future ($150/month is definitely worth it in my opinion).
  5. Interesting, as I thought most disability policies only replace a certain portion of your income and for a certain # of years. Do you know how much the monthly premium would be, say if you're in the early stages of your career?
  6. Scotiabank doesn't convert it to a professional line of credit? Is the professional line of credit available to you indefinitely after residency at prime - 0.25%?
  7. Wait - so you actually get $25000 per month simply by paying disability premiums (I'd assume the premiums is a couple hundreds per month) until age 65?
  8. Wow so OMA really pays you until you're 65 if you become disabled and can't work as a doctor anymore? I always thought disability insurance only paid out for a few years
  9. Definitely. I think this change definitely benefits "Course-Based Masters" students who have completed their degree, and possibly is a disadvantage to productive thesis-based Masters as now, productivity doesn't affect your ability to be considered a "graduate"
  10. So one question - is graduate productivity not important anymore for being assessed as a "graduate" applicant? If you did a course-based masters, you still benefit from the graduate pool?
  11. So for a course-based masters student: In the old system, they wouldn't be considered in the "graduate pool" because they didn't have enough research productivity? But in the new system, they would be considered in the "graduate pool" regardless of research productivity? If that's the case, seems like a disadvantage to those who are really productive in their Masters, and an advantage to those who aren't because they still get streamed in the graduate pool (i.e. lower GPA requirements)
  12. What TD credit cards do you get with the LOC? Are the fees for both waived year after year?
  13. Endo and Rheum (lifestyle IM subspecialties) are competitive correct? And if you don't match to those, you're stuck with GIM? Is it possible to do outpatient work with GIM or are you limited to the wards (i.e. being on call, inpatient)?
  14. Omg sorry, I didn't realize this was about Dentistry!
