    JohnGrisham got a reaction from LostLamb in When a preceptor tells you you have a FM personality.. What does it mean?   
    FM in most FFS settings is not slower paced haha.      I would take a day in GIM clinic over FM clinic  any day. Better paid, more time to think and digest, and not rushing onto the next one.     When GIM clinics are "time limited" it's because they want to make more money and/or they have a large list of patients they "need to see".

    Definitely, Derms get paid quite well in Ab. But don't forget, often in some practices the billing can be done through one providers MSP number.  

    A local derm colleague who does locum in alberta confirms this, that their billings are done through the clinic owner's #, and then takes the overhead cut from the billings. This is likely very much the case for the docs making >2million in public MSP billings.

    If you are working this hard in derm to get that high amount of public billings, you aren't going to have any time leftover to do comsetics.

    Why would they care? As long as they are competent residents and do well for the field, I dont think they are concerned by motivations.

    Not familiar with the politics of things, but this is obviously not a real plan.    The article doesn't even make sense, how can they open up a medical school that fast? 

    This is clearly a classic example of promising the world, without actually understanding how things work.    Political showmanship with zero substance.

    Kinda, cardiologists and respirologist at my centre do CTU work all the time, because they don't have enough work. Academic centre though, not really doing GIM work at community hospitals AFAIk.

    Class president...the popularity contest where you elect someone in the first two weeks of school when you dont even really know everyone yet.
    Most of the roles are chores, and the most qualified people dont end up wanting to waste their time with them.
     
    You can be involved outside of medical school too.

    JohnGrisham got a reaction from LostLamb in Call Lingo Explained?   
    No medical student is being forced to stay post-call.  Anyone who is, should be telling their admin asap, and that will be addressed swiftly. Canadian schools are pretty strict about this, and most attendings know better than to keep medical students post-call. There really is zero reason any medical student should be staying post call - residents and attendings can handle literally anything a medical student is "needed" to do.

    The benefit of NBME exams is in theory you have solid, tried and true prep resources and qbanks.

    JohnGrisham got a reaction from Wachaa in Can FM just do the niches?   
    Trouble is when you are in-patient, you're not available for clinic work and patients get unhappy when their doctor isn't available weeks at a time. Unless you're doing evening clinics etc, which some patients might even like haha.
