    Pediatrics - How to be competitive???

    I've been told Peds frown upon people doing electives in multiple specialties. For example, I'm really interested in Radiation Oncology, but Medical Oncology and Pediatric Oncology I find interesting as well. I was told that because I'm not doing the majority of my electives in Pediatrics, my odds of matching are super low. From what you've heard is this true?
  2. Thanks. Yeah, checked program descriptions. A few require an undergrad transcript, the rest don't. Same with Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. (Those were the specialties I looked at descriptions for) Thanks!
  3. Hey all, I've heard rumours of residencies like Radiology looking at Undergraduate (not med school) transcripts when selecting for residency spots. Anybody know if this is true, and if it is, do Rad Onc Residencies do the same? Thanks in advance!
  4. Psych can involve a decent amount of essays once you get into upper year seminars. That being said, fascinating subject in my opinion and can be super rewarding. Also, some programs put immense emphasis on research methods, considering the amount of confounding variables one has to consider in behavioural research, so it can be super helpful for both medicine and science if those are areas of interest.

    US Residencies and CaRMS

    Rad Onc?
  6. Both are pretty easy. To be fair, I took Developmental at Glendon because it was a 3000 level course there. Neither will be difficult. Psych courses tend to be fairly easy at York. I guess if you had to pick, Biological Basis usually doesn't have essays or assignments, although that may have changed. I'd advise checking the course outlines to check. http://psyc.info.yorku.ca/undergraduate-program/courses-and-schedules/fall-winter-2017-2018/#squelch-taas-toggle-shortcode-content-1
  7. Any idea if any of them are from Regional campuses or all Hamilton? (I doubt that it matters, just curious)
  8. I personally know of someone who got an interview at UofT IM who didn't do an elective there. Ended up ranking it pretty low and matched elsewhere.
  9. I'm sure there are, I just haven't met any. Anyone here who did, if you have time, I'd really appreciate it if you'd PM me. Thanks in advance!

    What do people wear for class?

    Personally, I wear a button down dress shirt and dress pants. I know some classmates wear nice shirts (not button down or anything) or a nicer sweater. It's not like interview day wear for example. You don't need to wear a tuxedo and blazer or a tie. I don't know of anyone who does, although it's possible people do. NOTE: for OSCE's, it's a little different. Some people wore ties. Pretty sure all the guys wore button down dress shirts. (Could be wrong on that though)

    What do people wear for class?

    Patient contact involved activities-Dress professionally. Non patient stuff-nobody cares. That being said, for PBL, it could be tutor dependent. Some tutors may prefer formal-wear. I've personally never had a tutor who cared about it, but I suppose it's possible. For lecture, nobody will likely even notice what you're wearing. For clinical skills sessions, they'll usually tell you if you need to dress professionally.

    Living in hamilton?

    Note: McMaster has more than one campus. We also have the Kitchener Waterloo campus (WRC) and Niagara campus (NRC), and KW is VERY close to Guelph-if you enjoyed living in Guelph. (*****Shameless Plug for McMaster WRC*****)
