  1. So bad grades first two years and good grades in third year so far? It's similar to how my undergrad started.
  2. I did carms selection as senior resident for a couple of years. I did vote down some applications that had negative items. One said "Not very interested in this [core] specialty" with no elaboration. One failed a rotation for unknown reason, probably because of an exam. And another one failed a rotation due to professionalism (was caught smoking in the hospital). They didn't get interviews but the rest of their applications were also just mediocre. I'd appeal yours.
  3. No idea if they plan to issue any more licences. I don't believe they have for 20+ years.
  4. Can't bill privately in Ontario. The few outpatient MR and CT clinics in Ontario are operating under licences handed out many years ago, and none since. I believe the oxford group had two of these licences, which got bought by another group for many millions of dollars. Quebec rads can bill private because of the Chaoulli v. quebec case, but, for some reason, that case did not set a precedent for the rest of Canada. The ongoing Cambie v. BC case looks like it will be precedent setting if ruled for the plaintiff. http://www.thecourt.ca/cambie-surgeries-v-bc-a-constitutional-right-to-access-private-heath-care/ https://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2019/12/03/Brian-Day-Court-Case-Ends/
  5. Is there any interest among physician assistants in Canada to work in radiology? Can you undergo specialized training to do basic image interpretation?
  6. Agree with lactic. Don't expect any thursday call shifts >:(
  7. at my program, we looked at research as a marker for your commitment to the specialty. one presentation/poster/publication does the trick.
  8. Calibrate your behavior to your preceptor and overall vibe of the group. With some preceptors, I don't hold back. With some others, it's super serious. Had one preceptor who's autistic af. Obviously my jokes didn't land. On your surgical rotation, regardless of preceptor personality, if the volume of blood in the suction canister goes above 500 mL, you stfu.
  9. Has this not been done for 2018? Would someone mind volunteering their time for the community?
  10. paste the doi link into sci-hub.tw it’s amazing.
