    2019 CaRMS unfilled spots

    For 1st round students too? Could you expand on this? Haven't heard about it.

    PARO Insurance - pre-existing/new condition?

    Disability insurance. Even if I weren't to claim anything now, would it affect possibly claims 20-40 years down the road?
  3. Oh yea, not uncommon. Only restriction is personal interest, not demand. Waiting lists are huge. I know a few that do it.
  4. Things like anti-vegf are not a heavy upfront investments..and even they were, the ROI is beyond insane.
  5. Except there are things like medical retina, which pulls in as much as cataracts, but you don't need an OR, or much staff/fancy and expensive equipment. Lots of ways to make cataract-level money on the self-employed/private side of things. And yes...ophtho is home call! Everything but globe rupture or a detached retina is "I'll see it in the morning". It's not just a better life style than most surgical specialties...it's better than most medical specialties too!
  6. Insane income and great lifestyle. Lots of that income can be had without ORs, which means the job market can be great even you're going to be mainly "self-employed". Hard not to like.

    I see what you mean, given that the Royal college exam is only once/year, and finishing a full year year is basically impossible. Basically you could get yourself some free time to study or focus in a particular area. But that's it.

    Preparing meals in med school

    Become friends with beans. Take a few days/weeks for your gut flora to shift and stop making you gassy. After that, you've found the holy grail of in terms of fast, easy, tasty, cheap AND healthy!

    True. Family/friends keep asking me if I'm done "Dr School" and it I can start working now +/- can I take shifts in family clinics/ER now. lol.

    CBD = shorter residency?

    I imagine it would be tough to shorten a 2 year program. I wonder if there is more freedom in programs like psych/PMR, which are 5 years and have some flexibility with regards to how you spend your time.

    CBD = shorter residency?

    Interesting. I assume there have been other examples other than the single ortho resident prior to 2015? I wonder how much more "possible" it is now that more time has elapsed.

    CBD = shorter residency?

    Has anyone heard of any residency being shortened thanks to CBD? It might be too early to tell given that Queen's and a few specialties only started in 2017, but I'm curious if there are any rumblings yet.
