    Working during CCFP-EM fellowship

    I've seen a FM doc 1 yr out of residency have restricted license - is this usually the case or is that an exception? They are not in any +1 program
  2. I tried searching around for this but beyond what boundary does it count as 'rural site' for the osap loan forgiveness? Does anyone have any suggestions of places they did a rural placement and were able to qualify for the $8000 loan forgiveness?
  3. Have you considered approaching the press about this? I feel like these issues are ignored by the administration until the public demands action
  4. There would need to be more context given - if you have such a huge patient roster, this must be a fam doc who's working surgeon hours

    CaRMS Second Iteration Process

    https://www.carms.ca/en/match-process/match-timelines/applicants/r-1-match-second-iteration/ This might be helpful to answering your 1st and 2nd qns if you scroll to the bottom
  6. I've never seen that before - is this rurally?
  7. So you had to pay rent for your house and your spouse's house? Wow that's expensive
  8. Last year it was 18, increased this year...it probably didn't help that several unmatched people last year also joined the match this year

    Unfilled carms spots

    For UofT, we got an email saying 26...pretty tough year, that's like 10% of our class
  10. People apply to derm and plastics?? I thought you had to do all your electives in plastics to even get interviews...how did their guidance counsellors not advise them about that?

    16+ interviews in 3 weeks?

    I think average depends on the specialty, I've heard 7-12 being 'average'
  12. Same, I did an elective there too. Do they give preference to their own students for interviews?

    Am I screwed?

    I'm sure they will understand, it's a stressful process especially with the system crash

    Job Market for Physicians

    I think there is data out there looking at the future needs of the population, with links that have been posted on this forum before. Also a lot of it is reported by PGY-5s and fellows who are in the process of looking for jobs as well
  15. I was speaking to a graduated family resident who regrets going into medicine and was saying "I don't know why anyone would go into medicine, my dad was right- I should've gone into engineering". I didn't know how to respond so I just said "but there are so many people who would want to be in your position right now, I had a friend try several times to get into med school and still hasn't gotten in so now they're doing something else" He replied "just you wait, when you're a resident you'll wish you hadn't gone into medicine too" I don't know if my response was correct...but I was just wondering how other people would approach this situation if it happened to them
