  9. I did rotations in both Toronto and Vancouver in a surgical sub-specialty and certainly working in these larger centres can be challenging, particularly in the ORs, as you've already mentioned. Where your opportunities are greatest to stand out is 1) being helpful and eager during rounds in the morning, and helping out the residents whenever possible (without being an annoyance or a hinderance); and 2) showing your stuff in clinic. Most of my time with quite nationally "well-known" staff has come primarily from working with them in clinic without residents. This is your prime opportunity to show them you can take a history, do an appropriate physical exam, write strong notes, and communicate your history and physical exam appropriate and precisely. Knowing your surgical anatomy and being strong at procedures is what residency is for. Show staff that you're personable, hard-working, and just an all-around kind human being will, in my experience, get them approaching you with offers to write letters of reference than showing that you've memorized anatomy for xyz. Lastly, I will say that in my opinion, regardless of how much exposure to staff you get, going to a centre where you are seriously considering doing residency trumps all. Seeing how the hospital runs, how happy the residents are, what the service is like is very important.
  10. The U of S is not on probation, nor will the history of such prevent you from matching into any specialty at any University. The University of Saskatchewan is actually a very strong program in my opinion.
  11. Any benefit you might gain is likely already achieved by having your OT degree. Maintaining a license solely for the purpose of being able to put it on your CV and potentially practicing during the summer for a short period of time at the expense of potentially missing out on other more beneficial opportunities seems to not be in your best interested. I have classmates who have maintained professional licenses, but they worked on weekends throughout pre-clerkship and now no longer practice due to time commitments in third -- and soon to be fourth -- year. I personally would focus on other opportunities that are more related to the speciality(s) that you are interested in, and making connections which might benefit your residency application.
  12. Hey there, I was in the exact situation you were a number of years ago; I was about half way through my MPT (which was my "plan B"), and realized medicine was the only field I could see myself practicing in. I can only speak for myself, and so your experiences may differ, but the Physical Therapy faculty that knew I was planning on pursuing medicine after completion of my MPT were extremely supportive and very happy for me even until this day. Ultimately, whatever career path you follow is completely up to you and should not be influenced by the potential thoughts of others. Having completed an MPT/MScPT prior to medicine will only give you more skills and experience from which to build on as you transition into medicine. Will you professors actually think you wasted their time? I find that unlikely, though I can see why one might feel this way. You're spending your money to complete the degree, you have many other classmates who will likely continue to practice in the field, and all of your professors will continue on with their work regardless of what field you ultimately decide on. Do what is best for you.
  13. From the sounds of things, you've got a very strong background in research; probably more than most students in medical school -- myself included. Having spoken with residents and newer attendings in competitive (surgical) programs, research is often a requirement, but the extent to which how much research experience you have compared to others may be less important. It's important to consider that being a well-rounded applicant with experience in a number of areas will likely yield better results than trying to get as much research as you can; unless, of course, you're very interested in research. Being familiar with the projects you have been involved in, and why they were important to the field and your personal development, I would hope, would impress a committee more than pumping out endless research. Take this with a grain of salt, however, as my University doesn't have as strong a research program as other larger Universities. Long story short, it sounds like you're well on your way to having a competitive residency application. If I were you, I would now focus on gaining experience in other areas, getting as many related electives as possible, and excelling in those.
  14. I think with the new cap in electives there is a lot of strategy that will come into play. With regards to the specific example that you mentioned (Internal and Family), if I were applying to those specialties, I might very well only do one elective in Family Medicine, if any at all. Partly because my school has a 6 week Family Medicine core rotation (unsure if all other schools do; I I am unfamiliar with the standardized core rotation policies), and also because of lot of problems a Family Medicine physician is exposed to are medicine specialist problems, and so doing rotation in CTU, Cardiology, Respirology, etc could very easily be rationalized in a personal letter for both internal medicine and family medicine. I suspect a lot of applications such as this will take a lot of skillful personal letter writing to sell one's self to similar specialites; I also think it will play to one's advantage in that one can gain a more diverse exposure, which is ultimately one of the purposes of bringing about this cap. Please keep in mind, however, that I am currently applying to neither Family Medicine nor Internal Medicine, and so my "strategy" may be completely wrong.
  15. If this is your first rotation ever, I would hope that the expectations of your preceptor(s) would be relatively lax. One way to stand out, in my opinion, would be to develop excellent history taking skills, as this would be (likely) your primary role. Being extremely thorough, yet direct with your questioning, is something that you will do continuously throughout your clerkship, and so developing good habits now will serve you in the long run. I'm not sure what your derm rotation is like, but I did a 2-week selective in derm a month or so ago, and it was entirely private practice. You will see a lot of psoriasis, eczema, actinic keratosis, some skin cancers, etc. Knowing how to treat those, and describe them accurately with appropriate terminology, I think, would be the difference between a good clerk and an outstanding clerk. Lastly, ask to do things in the clinic like punch biopsies. It shows you take initiative, and it's also probably the most exciting part of the rotation if you ask me. Best of luck!
