  1. If you're interested and motivated, then applying to participate in research programs is definitely worthwhile. Continuing to be somewhat involved in medicine is a great idea to keep your mind sharp and be ready for the new school year. Personally, I have done a combination of spending time with my family and volunteering on a medical team to Guatemala. I did research one year too. Now I'm too busy to plan a nice summer - but always try to go with the volunteer medical team - it's a special experience volunteering in a different country. I'd recommend it.
  2. That easy? lol I was looking up the new aha guidelines for ACLS cert and algorithms and a lot of the forums on this topic are dated. If anyone still visits this forum, the AHA guidelines are changing again. The new algorithms are already out. https://www.acls.net/aclsalg.htm.
  3. At U of T it doesn't count towards the degree - so I would say it probably wouldn't be counted in the GPA or considered as part of the course load.
  4. The world is your oyster - what other interests do you have? It really depends on matching your other interests with your skills, whether they be medical related or not. If it's strictly salary motivated, I don't see the point. If you want to try new things, what else are you interested in?
  5. Each school has their own way of functioning - but they're used to converting grades, that's for sure. When I had to transfer courses, they just marked them all as pass/fail instead of changing the grades. Probably because it was from a school abroad.
  6. Teachingtakes place primarily in the operating room where residents work
  7. According to me you should speak what you think is right and act according to your mind. In case you think it is not good and you cannot do it for patients just leave them because patients not left alone if you declined than they can contact to other doctors.
  8. Anxiety cannot be denied when going in rotation. Anxiety may be caused by excitement or nervousness. You reason may differ on how prepared you are in dealing with patients and giving medical advises and attention. Being safe and accurate will decrease the pressure of committing any error. Being in rotation is an opportunity to determine your will as a medical professional. This is your final test towards professionalism. Good luck and have fun!
  9. Hey Chris I had same situation with my parents when choosing this career. But you have to keep trying and determined. If you need any help, feel free to contact me.
