  1. Oh no I got my full license right away. I missed that provisional part. Sorry.
  2. Is this a new regulation? I am licensed in BC and there was no such rule when I registered in 2016.

    CFPC membership

    There is a way to sign up only to use mainpro (the CFPC cme system) without being a full fledged member. It is less expensive but I cannot remember by how much. If you choose to go that route, you cannot use the CCFP designation. That might seem unimportant but some hospitals want you to have that designation in order to obtain hospital practicing privileges.

    Working during CCFP-EM fellowship

    I second this. CCFP-EM year was painful. Totally not worth trying to work at the same time. My PD discouraged us from doing it.
  5. I am a CCFP-EM working in a tertiary care hospital in BC doing full time emergency medicine. We teach medical students and residents including the occasional 5 year elective resident. I do not do any research but my center is looking to grow in that area and I totally could if I wanted. As for who is hiring, I finished my EM year 2 years ago. 2 of my cohort are working in large academic centers not in BC. As far as I know, the only places in Canada that restricts to hiring 5 year EM residents are VGH and maybe st. Mike’s in Toronto. Everywhere else, I have heard of CCFP-EMs being hired in the last few years. It’s all about talking to the right person at the right time.

    Format Of Reference Letter Via Carms

    Some programs provide a form where they ask the referee to rate the candidate on certain qualities and then to elaborate on those on a separate letter. However this is not the norm.
  7. Actually I think the cost got incurred when you chose to submit an application to a given school. Since it has been paid for, no harm in ranking them.
  8. I don't know if this is still the case but some provinces like Ontario will only let you try if you are just finishing your family med residency. The exception is people who are off cycle can sometimes try twice in that case. Once to have a delayed start date and another to have a bit of free time in between fam med and the +1. Other provinces like Quebec have no such restriction and you can keep applying.

    Sorting Hat

    Carms is like a sorting hat. Discuss.

    Mccqe P1

    I know I had to input my scores and submit the reports that go along with them for my +1 EM carms app. I am also pretty sure they don't look at it cause my score was only ok and I matched. Can't know for sure though.

    Ccfm-Em Carms Results?

    2014 and 2015 are now on the carms site.
  12. If 54 spots went unmatched last year then the overall savings of cutting 50 spots is zero. All they are doing is taking the slack out of the system. This is a political stunt to show taxpayers they are cutting money for rich doctors. Your average person doesn't understand what this all means. They just like the cuts. But they can be informed. Gently. If a tree falls and no one is there does it make a sound? If a residency spot goes unfilled does it cost any money?

    How Do Universities Judge You?

    I think all the French schools in Quebec assume you don't need that much time to do the 4-8 interviews in Quebec. *Why would you want to leave la belle province?* super sarcasm. Or how can you if you are unilingual Francophone.
  14. Actually the province you are licensed in is the one you apply to. For CMGs it is just a matter of some paperwork (the degree of annoying-ness of this depends on the chosen province). You are in no way obligated to be licensed (and therefore py the licensing fee) in the province you complete your residency.
