  1. As someone interested in genetics, I am naturally really worried about the job market post-residency. I've heard many conflicting opinions about it, as some geneticists have said the demand far exceeds supply right now, and that trend will only increase in the future, while I've also seen comments like yours that make me concerned. Do you have any thoughts on this? Do you describe the job market as bad because it is pretty much limited to major cities only right now? It seems to me like although the field is small, since there are so few new geneticists graduating each year it shouldn't be too hard to find a job- but as a med student I can't speak to this with confidence at this point.
  2. Re: Calgary genetics spot still open- can someone confirm this is reserved for IMG only? Please forgive my ignorance but why would a CMG not be able to fill this spot- something to do with funding? Did UBC Internal med/psych not fill because of the RoS required?

    2017 Carms Applicants

    Forgive me if this was discussed previously but I did not see anything- any thoughts on the dermatology spot still open in Ottawa after the first round? Why would this have gone unmatched? Seems so unlikely given the competitiveness- just a fluke of the process maybe?
  4. Would anyone have an insight into the future of the role of medical geneticists? Would it be reasonable to expect them to be needed outside of large, urban centers? Will they be more in demand, or less because each specialty will become well-versed in the genetics within their area (ex: as more discoveries are made through research, cardiologists will be experts congenital heart disorders, so the MG may not be needed as much, and similarly with neurologists and neurological disorders, and so on...)?
  5. Does anyone have any insight on the different banks and repayment after residency vs. fellowship? I thought I saw that one of them offered it after fellowship but I'm having trouble finding which one that is...
  6. IP Accepted! GPA: 3.9 MCAT: 518 (130/129/130/129) ECs: a little bit of everything! Interview: I think it was so-so, I went back on forth on it over the past few months. My biggest tip is don't get discouraged by a rocky station especially at the beginning, try to psych yourself back up as much as possible for the rest!

    How's Everyone Doing?

    Over the past few years acceptances have actually gone out during Dal's reading week! So I think it is a possibility, though not necessarily a guarantee. Last year reading week was March 14-18 and acceptances went out on the 16th.

    Dal Online Checklist

    Is anyone else's account saying their MCAT score was received today? Before now it was a date in August.

    Awards, Research, Achievements

    In this same section, is it sufficient to put "see transcript" for awards that can be seen there, or should a contact person also be provided?

    Aamc And Khan Academy Prep

    Thanks very much for your detailed response, I really appreciate it! I agree that I'll have to see what works best for me personally, but your reply is a great starting point.

    Aamc And Khan Academy Prep

    Does anyone have advice about the best ways to use the official AAMC resources and Khan Academy practice passages? I've read that people recommend leaving the AAMC practice tests until close to test day. Is it better to work through the section banks/question packs subject by subject or is there a way to essentially simulate an actual test? Any feedback you could provide would be much appreciated
  15. Agreed, will do. Thanks for your help!
