  1. Come to think of it, we're too often told not to consider any of the key factors that most people use to decide on a career (other than interest in theoretical subject matter).
  2. Agreed. While I appreciate getting shout-outs, remember there are a lot of great free sources. Here's one of mine, which forms of the basis what I teach everyone. If you master this you don't need to pay for training:
  3. Hmm...I don't recall. Probably my PhD supervisor.
  4. I think so. I was a CMAJ reviewer when I applied and included it on OMSAS.
  5. That is not what goes through anyone's mind when they're married lol. If you do, it's not actually a consequence of "not getting it out of your system", it's a personality thing.
  6. If you're happy with a six-figure job, I think you'd be insane to make the sacrifices that it takes to become and MD. Invest that opportunity cost and see how long it takes an MD to catch up.
  7. I will say anecdotally that half of the people that I trained for apps/interviews last year were from Guelph, and they all got in on their first cycle :S.
  8. It's pretty wide spread, just google it. Star and some st Catherine's paper have a searchable database.
  9. Yeah. I have no moral/religious objections but I've just never enjoyed the taste/feeling. For a short period of time in my 20s I thought I should start trying for social reasons. Still couldn't enjoy it. In a few short years it became cool/acceptable not to drink again. So just skip it. Also, bad for your health. Win win.
  10. Some programs at some school do MMI scenarios that might be related....but you won't need to review the book for them.
  11. Do you mean community pain? Or private work?
  12. Can't believe this thread is still going.
  13. Beyond being unfair, I think it's hurting patients. Wait times in these specialities (despite not being hospital-resource intensive) reflect that. The flip side is that for the most part you know people who went into these specialties did so knowing they would be training longer for less money, which usually takes a certain type of person. I haven't met many people in neuro who aren't truly passionate for the field...it would be hard to sustain a (relatively) poor economic decision without that. Perhaps it makes for better doctors? Though I don't really think cardiologists are any worse just because they make 2-3x what neurologists/peds/psych make.
