    I don't know of any nephrologist/nephro trainee that would subject themselves to 2 separate fellowships (I believe they are all 1 year), to still end up jobless. People generally either locum in GIM or do endless CA'ing after 1 year of fellowship, but I'm sure there are those out there that think another year of extra training will help (it wont, when there are no dialysis spots open).

    So much of this (in all programs, I'm a surgeon and I saw the same behaviour from universities and academia).
    You are a cog in a machine that, as far as most universities and many academic staff are concerned, exists to advance their career, secure extra money (earning or grants) or lessen their workload.
    The quicker you learn to trust nobody in medicine, the better off you will be in the long run.

    The University/program have their own agenda's, which likely relates to money.
    From my understanding the University/program gets only 3 years of funding/per resident for the "core" portion of the Internal medicine program (which is 3 years), and then get additional 2 years of funding/per resident in the subspecialty programs. However our CARMS contract guarantees us 4 years of funding if we do the 4 year GIM program. The government however doesn't fund this for whatever reason and so the schools have to find the funding and pay for each resident. That can get pricey if you have 10+ residents doing it (which can equate to 750k- 1million/year).
    Universities/programs will rarely care about what is best for *you* as an individual. Don't trust them, go with what makes sense to you and your family, because 5-10 years down the line when you're done and struggling to look for work because you became hyperspecialized in x,y,z sub-sub-specialty and there isn't a job in a city where you want to live, the University/program wont even remember your name, and you'll be doing GIM work anyways except that you will have lost all those years of *real* earning potential

    It confuses me to no end that there is bashing of ITDs and students that want to return to Canada after attending US/Australia/Irish/etc schools.
    If I wanted to become a dentist in Canada but couldn't get into a Canadian school, I would find other ways of achieving it (e.g. coming back after completing a dental degree elsewhere).
    If I were a dentist from a third world country and learned that one can earn a respectable income in the same profession, I would try to come to this country to benefit myself and my family.
    Don't hate the players, hate the game. 
    Our enemy isn't those that become licensed in Canada to practice dentistry. Our enemy is the legislations that have allowed the saturation to occur in the first place. 
    It would be in the best interest of everyone to find ways to minimize how many dentists get certified in Canada (https://ndeb-bned.ca/en/dental-programs/historical-pass-rates)
    It would be nice if they didn't accept dentists from other countries the country does not need any more than how many it produces internally. Unfortunately, immigration plays a major role in Canada's growth hence it is not necessarily a viable option.

    To expand on this...
    Usually an element of naivety/ignorance exists. Attendings rarely let med students know the full reality of what it's like. Plus attendings have an incentive to draw you in (an unmatched surgical program = ton more work for everyone = higher attrition rates = more headaches/work for attendings). Yeah the job market is probably going to improve in 10 years hahaha Lots of overly optimistic med students. This potentiates with the big egos found in medicine in general. Unmatched? No way, I work harder than the rest. Not matching to top 3? No way, I am more likeable than the rest. Not finding a job in Toronto? No way, I am more talented than the rest. Etc. Competitiveness in and of itself draws students. Surgery or at least the idea of it is genuinely cool. For some that is enough to make them truly happy. For others it is just enough to trick them into thinking they'll be happy.  Many medical students invest in identities very early on. If you identify with being a surgeon, it will be difficult for you to pick any other specialty as you progress. And yeah, everything NLengr said.

    Come to think of it, we're too often told not to consider any of the key factors that most people use to decide on a career (other than interest in theoretical subject matter).
