  1. Hello, I am a Canadian citizen (Ontario) who is currently at a US medical school. Without disclosing too much I would like a transfer to a Canadian medical school in my 3rd year as clinicals begins. Is it by any chance possible?
  2. Hello Iyin0991,

    Which US med school did you get accepted into? Did you retake your MCAT exam?

    Thanks.......

      Thanks a lot. Is there any scholarship opportunities for Canadians in Meharry? Also, are Canadians considered as International Students?

      Thanks again and good luck with your studies!

      I apologize for the late reply. The school is professional (med,dent phd) meaning they have no undergrad so they are  limited in their resources. But I do know that if you do well on your MCAT like 30+ (old scale) then you have higher likelihood of attaining a scholarship. There are some you can also apply for but as a Canadian you are limited. I hope that helps. I advise calling the financial aid office for more concrete information. Goodluck!

    CCFP(EM) in the US?

    I had posted this in another forum but some help would be awesome. "Hi, I am a Canadian who is currently a first year student in the US. I want to apply for family residency in Canada and I was also interested in doing the +1 in EM. Based off conversations with my Canadian friends who are currently in/graduated medical school as well as this forum, it seem that acquiring the +1 is difficult. I was wondering anyone had information as to if US programs also offer a plus 1 similar to that in Canada and if it would be recognized in Canada?" p.s: I now know that University of Tennessee at Memphis and Knoxville offer the graduate training program in EM for 1 year I believe. Now if you completed your practice in Canada (2 yr FM program) does that pose a problem for example at U of Tennessee because in their website they stated that one requirement was "Completion of an ACGME or AOA approved Family Medicine Residency Program, with a letter from the Program Director documenting training??". Other schools seem to state that was well http://www.uthsc.edu/UTFamJac/erfellowship.php

  5. Hi all, I am a Canadian citizen. I am currently a first year US medical student who has been weighing his options. I might change my mind but I've always wanted to be a family physician as well as an ER physician. If I am unable to match in Canada during Carms, ill just have to stay in the states and do my residency there. In the US, family medicine is 3 years and I was thinking after that I would do a 1 year fellowship in ER ( 4 years total) or I could do a joint program of 5 years which combines family medicine and emergency medicine. I was wondering if I did the 3 + 1 or the 5 year joint residency in family medicine and ER in the states, would I face any obstacles in regards to being able to sit to write exams for family or ER or both specialties if I wanted to be licensed in Canada and practice? Any insight is much appreciated Cheers!
  6. Hi guys, I wanted to know if anyone of this forum had information in regards to a Canadian citizen who will complete his medical degree in the usa and plans to come back to do residency in Canada? Any thoughts on that and if it will be difficult. I know I will still be considered somewhat of a CMG but not fully. However, I will not be an IMG. I am interested in family medicine. Let me know what y'all think. Thanks (y)
  7. I applied in November to howard and Meharry and got rejected. I wanted to apply early in the new cycle. Do you know of any other low tier MD schools?
  8. Which are low tier schools? and what is a hbcs?
  9. I know my 24 is really low. I've written the MCAT 3 times and the verbal is what continues to be my achilles tendon. During the practice tests for my third attempt I would consistently end up with 6's or 7's. During my final attempt which I gave my absolute all I once again got a 6 in VR which was really sad
  10. Hi, I applied really really late to American schools (November 4th) and got rejected from every school which I am not surprised about now after doing some homework on rolling admissions. The next cycle opens sometime in mid May of this year. If I have a GPA: 3.82 with a sGPA: 3.78 and an MCAT: 24 (9/6/9) with the 6 being in (VR). What would my chances be if I applied at the beginning of May to a few African American schools (Howard, Meharry, Morehouse...any other suggestions)? Some insight would be helpful. Thanks p.s: I'm from an African origin
  11. Hi, For Family Medicine, in terms of projections...do you know how many years it has been in effect and will continue to be in effect for FM residents from a US ACGME resideny to be able to fill out a paperwork and then cross to practice Family Medicine in Canada?

    Chance For Next Admission Cycle

    Hey Lebpwr, From what I know. Even though you are a quebec resident, if you studied in a post-secondary institution outside of Canada then you are obliged to release your MCAT score.
