    White coat ceremony

    @Donald_DuckI figured I would, but I didn’t want to make it seem like I made up the date either! According to the schedule, you have two weeks of orientation from september 4th to september 14th. Last day of school is May 31st! Also, you will probably be getting an email with your log in information next week from what I’ve heard. I know it’s annoying to not know what your schedule looks like! I hope this helps!

    Blacked out Med bags

    The bags were all black until our class (MD2019) and yes, you usually get your bags fairly early in the first week of orientation if I remember correctly!
  13. Well, here's what I know: a friend of mine in the CNFS stream from my year got off the waitlist. The day before she got the call, her friend who was also in the CNFS stream was accepted to another med school and gave her spot at uOttawa. Another one of my friend in first year also got off from the CNFS waitlist and there is still 8 people in the CNFS stream in that class. In fact, for the past 4 years, there has been 8 CNFS student per class (max number), if the waitlist was separate, we wouldn't get the max number of CNFS students per year!
  14. There is a separate waitlist for the CNFS stream!
  15. There is lots of things that I could talk about regarding why the French stream is so awesome, but I'll try to keep it short! During your first two years, you can do electives in your free time at any hospital you choose to. Some electives aren't easy to secure at TOH (Emergency, for example), but are easier to secure at Montfort Hospital, so that's an advantage for the francophone students. In your 3rd year, you are mostly based at Montfort, except for some core rotations like Paediatrics (and for some Mandatory Selectives) that are done in English. In 4th year, the year you actually do your electives for residency, you are not obligated to choose a specific hospital and you can (and should) do your electives all over the country. So basically, there is no disadvantage to the French stream since you have the opportunity to go do your electives in other hospitals and you can also apply to francophone residency spots if you want to. Also, you need to take into account what kind of curriculum you want and how likely you are to choose what specialty you want quickly because Ottawa and McMaster are very different. In Ottawa, you get to do all your core rotations in 3rd year and then have 10 weeks of electives right at the beginning of your 4th year (sept/oct) so you can visit schools and get good references for CaRMS. What I learned after speaking to a McMaster student is that because of the 3 year program some students only get to do some of their electives and core rotation after they submit their application for residency. This can play to your advantage if you know what specialty you want early in your studies so you can start doing electives earlier and get reference letters than rather than later like in Ottawa. But if you are like me and you have no clue what you might like and need some time to figure it out, you might appreciate doing all your core rotations first and then doing your electives later. That being said, I do not fully know how the curriculum at McMaster is so maybe you should ask the student at this school to confirm! I hope this helps!
