    I disagree. The best way is to get the "previous sample" questions that are passed down year to year and practice those.

    PARO Insurance - pre-existing/new condition?

    You get long term disability insurance through paro while a resident. Pre-existing conditions should affect it. That being said it will expire when you become a staff. That is why a lot of the OMA and RBC insurance companies speak at the end of medical school. Most do not require a physical etc. look into that.
  3. You crazy haha. Although tbh your first score was probably better since more programs care about the verbal.
  4. The latter. A job in your ideal city may not have an opening for 5+ years sometimes.
  5. That being said, I think radiation oncology is a great career. The one thing is you have to be okay settling down permanently in other areas away from family and friends. Think long and hard about that.

    2019 CaRMS unfilled spots

    you have to wait at least 6 months into your residency and the people to talk with is your PGME. I would not inform your matched program about your plans.

    CaRMS School Match Rate

    This is a scam.
  9. A very poor decision on her part with a fair and expected outcome from the college. That withstanding, she was a good oncologist based on my experiences having shared some mutual patients (rather my staff's mutual patients)

    Rad Onc + Internal Med

    no. you will be fine. one of my co-residents backed up with med genetics and did fine. Both are not terribly competitive although. In general, I find that radiation oncologists are decently understanding of having diverse interests. I see you go to Mac, I would recommend doing elective during your vacation in the summer to give you six electives. Feel free to private message me. I am an RO resident who went to Mac.
  11. J1 is really far from an ideal visa. It is quite difficult to get an HB-1 nowadays, which frankly is the only visa applicants should really consider.
  12. Canadians are not as preferred due to issues obtaining VISA's, letters of need etc. Backing up in the US is not really a viable option for most people. The effort required to do so would almost certainly be better spent going to making one a better candidate for the Canadian application. Anyway, not sure it was ever answered but the extra Ontario spots were a one-time thing. will not be repeated in the future. (THe government said they were creating the spots but in reality, they told the university to do so and the government did not actually give any additional money to them.
