  1. Awesome, thanks! I will definitely check out those brands!
  2. Does anyone have any good recommendations for compression socks?
  3. Will the MCC take into consideration disconnections or unforeseen interruptions when marking? It is already unfair that candidates are forced to do these examinations in non-ideal test taking environments,, and I can imagine a disconnection or interruption will cause more stress mid-examination
  4. Has anyone had any difficulty with taking the QE1 examination remotely? Asking for a friend who is looking for advice/suggestions/feedback from others experience with taking a board examination at home. Thanks!
  5. Have you completed the qe1 yet? I'm just curious cause my partner is trying to book hers but with covid, it has been impossible
  6. Quick question, my friend is trying to book her QE1 but she noticed Prometric changed her eligibility period to January 2021 - December 2021 - have any of you noticed this? If so, does prometric change it if you provide proof that your original eligibility period was from Jan 2020 - Dec 2020? Also, is May 21st for those who have previously booked a test date or for those who do not have a test date as of yet.... Thanks!
  7. Hi, I am wondering if there any forum members completing their residency at UBC/VGH who could pass on any advice regarding living near VGH vs. commuting to VGH. I am originally from Vancouver, and I have the option to live at home for residency. I am roughly an 8min drive to both VGH and UBCH. As a way to save money and curb the cost of living, I plan to live at home and drive to VGH. I have access to a personal car but, I am tempted to use EVO Car-Share instead to avoid paying for on-site parking. Does anyone have any experience in regards to using EVO and the long-term cost differences between EVO and a personal car? Thanks.
  8. Given the impact of covid on Prometric centres globally, I am wondering if anyone has any insight regarding whether candidates will be able to write the MCCQE1 prior to entering CaRMS next year? I am asking on behalf of a friend who is hoping to complete their exam in July/August but cannot schedule a test-date since there are none available on the Prometric booking site for the next six months. Has anyone been able to schedule a test date? Thanks.

  15. From my experience, your transcript/diploma does not need to be verified by the MCC to apply for CaRMS, unless your medical studies were conducted in a language other than English. If you match into a program, then you need your transcript + diploma certified by the MCC in order to receive your licence. Source verification can take up to six week maximum , depending on the type of document and the language of the document.
  16. Hi, I have a question on behalf of someone I know. They are wondering, does CaRMS record the number of match cycles you have registered for (e.g. didn't match last year and reapplying this year - so would programs know that you reapplying for the 2nd time?). Also, if you retake the MCCQE1 or NAC to achieve a better score, does CaRMS keep your old scores within your application for the following cycle? CaRMS states that they only include the "most recent exam results" for each match cycle but I have no experience of this. Thanks
  17. I was hoping to use the Master's as a way to improve my application/CV competitiveness. I have completed my USMLEs and I will be applying to the States this year. I completed my medical school in the UK. If the consensus is that research + exposure is more important, I will just throttle down my Master's work load and extend it over two years. If i end up matching this year I will drop my grad program and take it up in the future. Do I have disclose that my master's program is going to be extended? Also, do programs ask for a master's/grad school transcript? Thanks again
  18. Thanks for responding, my masters is a mixture of courses + research project. It can be completed in one year but extended to two or more years if needed. The courses are pretty intensive and require a lot of work since I am unfamiliar with a lot of the concepts. I am not a big fan of epidemiology or biostatistics..... When I spoke to program directors and CaRMS committee members - they said a Master's doesn't hold much weight since they don't have any perspective to the amount of work which has been put into it vs. publications where most to all CaRMS committee members can related to the pain of publishing/editorial process.
  19. I have a quick question, I am a IMG who didn't match during last years cycle and I am currently enrolled in a grad program. I have been going to residency programs over the past several months, and when I talk to program directors, there seems to be less weight held on a having a masters degree over published research. I have the ability to prolong my masters over two years, but in setting where I match, I can just drop it. Does anyone have any experience onto how much weight a master's degree adds to the CaRMS application? Or should I be focusing more on research and exposure? I have several publications at the moment, but I am finding that my grad program is taking more time away from my research than what I would like. I have received a bunch of mixed answers. Thanks!
  20. I took my MCCQE Part 1 this past week, not what I expected at all. I have completed USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK and CS in addition with the MCCEE and NAC-OSCE, and in my opinion the QE1 was probably the most random exam I have taken in a long time. My question distribution was heavily weighted on geriatric psychiatry, ethics and medical law for some reason. CDMs were much better than the MCQs, but still, a very weird exam overall.
  21. Just an update: if you are an IMG and thinking of deferring graduation to facilitate further electives in Canada, it really isn't worth it. Turns out, most Canadian institutions (which accept IMGs for residency programs) will not allow IMGs to complete additional electives if the program has been extended/deferred to facilitate for this. Kind of a downer if you ask me but not the end of the world.
  22. Hi all, I am an IMG currently in my final year of studies, and I am keen on pursuing a career in Orthopaedic Surgery in Canada. I have lots of exposure to Orthopaedic Surgery over the past six years from observerships, unofficial electives and official electives (all of which were in Canada). In addition, I have been part of seven research projects, co-authored in four, and have had the opportunity publish two papers as the first author. I have also written my USMLEs. I did not enter the American match as I was going to give Canada a shot first. I entered the CaRMS match this year with high hopes, but unfortunately, I did not match. During my interviews, program directors hinted at the reality of not matching, but I found their response was overall positive. Lots of residents and faculty members told me that since I am young, I should keep my chin up, and continue with research in the hopes of matching this following cycle. I was hoping to arrange an elective prior to my graduation but, due to "bureaucratic" issues I was unable. My medical school has offered to defer my graduation to November of 2019 to facilitate further elective time, which is super tempting. As I saw not matching could be a reality, I prophylactically enrolled in a Master's Program starting September. Does anyone have insight into whether deferring my graduation would have an impact on my Master's Program? I would like to complete a Master's as I have a strong interest in research, but at the same time, I don't want to lose such an opportunity for further elective time. Any advice would be great!
  23. So true. Connections, favors, politics etc. play a huge role for these people that we are describing, and they unfortunately don't help when trying to determine how competitive a field is...
