  1. The government has once again agreed to arbitration for this upcoming Tuesday.
  2. So your alternative was for doctors to vote for a government that slandered, lied, and was openly hostile towards them? Makes sense. Lol. Or do you think they should have voted NDP? There was some logic to voting conservative because there was at least some chance of a favourable outcome.

    Realignment of Doctor's Income

    It's really too bad. Divide and conquer is the oldest trick in the book and to see a group as educated as physicians are fall into it is laughable. But yes, everyone will be cut. We don't know exactly how far the government will go with this, and once they're done with the highest billing specialties, they will certainly find a new target. So while there is some element of schadenfreude (for some people) in seeing some of these specialties be cut, it is short sighted and foolish to not support one another.

    Pretty sad how the government finally made us crack and begin cannibalizing one another.

    Any more updates? Dark times are coming, my friends.

    Realignment of Doctor's Income

    Which fields, if any, will be getting increases? If new money is injected into the system, will emerg, pediatrics, neurology, etc. actually be the first to receive increases? What is the planned fate of unlisted specialties such as physiatry, neurosurgery, hematology, etc? How significant will the cuts to ophtho, rads, cards, and GI be? I am surprised to see that they may be going after immunology, endo, and ENT. Ideally, all physicians would remain under the same representative organization. Personally, however, if I belonged to any of the specialties on the chopping block, this behaviour from the OMA would be intolerable when they are supposed to be protecting my interests. I don't blame them for wanting to split away and forming a specialists association, although I cannot see why pediatrics, emerg, etc. would want to join.
  7. Nonsense. I have a lot more sympathy for actual IMGs - those who grew up in other countries and had little choice but to train there - than Canadians who decided to circumvent the system by going abroad.
  8. How do their credit cards compare to Scotia's offerings? They have an iPad promo going on right now, and I wonder if it would be possible to take advantage of that by switching to RBC.

    OSAP/NSLSC frustration

    The website is atrocious. Someone should correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't even think they describe HOW to make a payment anywhere on their site. Absolutely unacceptable for such a large, government run organization to have so many glaring deficiencies.
  10. Awesome. I'm going to go ahead with it. Can I ask where you got your surgery (if you don't want to answer publicly, you can PM me)?
  11. Really? I would have thought they would have issue with this. Have you personally done this or know of any specific examples?
  12. Do we get one through PARO? I can't seem to find any mention of it. I've also noticed that I'm still able to log into CFMS and that I can print out a Lasik MD discount card, although it lists my graduating year as 2018. I am wondering if anyone has had any success in using this even after starting residency. How long are we technically a part of the CFMS until anyways (graduation month vs. time the next academic year starts, etc.)? EDIT: Just noticed I posted in the wrong subforum, but hopeful for replies here anyways.
