  8. I think based on your last two years you're still competitive at a number of Canadian and American programs. Schools such as Western and Queen's tend to take your best years or last years, which would work in your favour; the likes of Toronto and Saskatchewan drop some of your lowest marks which would work in your favour as well. And an upwards trend is always good!
  9. Learn from the expert examiner on how to do well on the MCCQE and NAQ OSCE! See our new blog at http://mdconsultants.ca/5-expert-tips-to-do-well-on-the-mccqe-2-and-nac-osce/
  10. This blog was written with information from an academic family physician at U of T, who has been an examiner for the MCCQE Part 2 for over 5 years. Check it out for expert advice on how to ace the exam! http://mdconsultants.ca/5-expert-tips-to-do-well-on-the-mccqe-2-and-nac-osce/
  11. Yes, you are considered as CMG if you obtained MD from an US school. See our blog post at http://mdconsultants.ca/canadian-residency-for-us-medical-students/ Of course, you would lack the kind of networking needed for a competitive specialty in Canada (generally speaking).
  12. If your goal is getting into medical school, you should choose courses based on how to achieve the best GPA possible. See our most recent blog post at http://mdconsultants.ca/does-gpa-matter-when-applying-to-med-school/ It doesn't matter if the course makes your medical school learning easier. Almost everyone will get through medical school no problem, as long as your put in the time and effort. People somehow are always able to adapt to the environment where strong work ethic is rewarded by success.
  13. It all depends on if you think you will get a good grade from the course, and whether it will reduce the number of exams you have to write. A thesis course also allows you to gain valuable research experiences. Perhaps talk to others and see if anyone can suggest good supervisors they have worked with before. The key is that you must protect your GPA. See our most recent blog post on how to improve your GPA for medical school application. http://mdconsultants.ca/does-gpa-matter-when-applying-to-med-school/
  14. The key isn't to follow the easiest or the hardest path to get into medical. The key is to follow the path with the greatest probability of success. Courses that are easy for one person may be difficult for another. You need to figure out what works best for you and follow the path that gives you the most certainty. Medical students come from a variety of academic backgrounds, but med school adcom only cares about the absolute GPA. In reality, very few medical students experience academic difficulties and the vast majority graduate medical school on time (those with difficulties may repeat courses, but extremely rarely would one drop out). The fact is simple: you must follow the path that allows you to protect the GPA to give you some certainty and confidence that you have a shot at getting into medical school. Being a good physician is a lifelong learning process and involves accumulation of years of clinical and life experiences. But, once again, you need a solid GPA to even think about beginning this this lifelong process. See our most recent blog post on how to improve your GPA for medical school application http://mdconsultants.ca/does-gpa-matter-when-applying-to-med-school/
  15. As some of you might know, Ontario has recently had to implement continuous cuts to physician funding to counter the rising cost of the public healthcare system. A lot of physicians have protested this, saying it will impact patient care. Toronto-based academic consulting firm MD Consultants wants to hear what you think about this issue. Submit a 500 word essay on how cuts to physician funding may or may not affect patient care, and you could win up to $500.
