  1. Out of curiosity, why is it that you wouldn't consider heme-path to have a great lifestyle whereas say anatomical or general path does?
  2. Thank you so much for this detailed response! It's exciting how things are changing and I'm intrigued to see how clinical genetics evolves in the future. Lots of food for thought in terms of outreach and telemedicine. I will certainly keep what you said in mind!
  3. Hi DNA Doc! I'm in my third year now and have had a strong interest in genetics since before starting medical school. I've read through this thread numerous times over the years, so happy to see you back! One of my biggest questions relating to a career in genetics is around the job prospects. I'm glad to see the demand for genetics consults is only continuing to increase. I'm wondering whether the large majority of job opportunities remain in major cities. When I've asked geneticists and other physicians about this they have related that it may be challenging to work in a smaller centre where you may be the only geneticist due to the lack of colleagues for collaboration and potentially more limited laboratory abilities. This is a concern for me as I hesitate to limit myself geographically to major cities only. I'd love any insight you may have on this! Thanks!
  4. Hi all, just wondering where I might find some information regarding application to and competitiveness of OBGYN fellowships?
  5. Maybe a dumb question, but are IMG positions fair game for CMGs after the second iteration? Or are all the streams still in place?
  6. Not a resident here but another student (second year). It's somewhat rare to see a post here about medical genetics, so just wanted to reach out as I'm really interested in pursuing it as well and likely have similar questions to you! Feel free to message me if you want to commiserate, I would also love to hear a resident's perspective, especially since it's such a small field.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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...)?
  10. 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...
  11. 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!
  12. I didn't receive one either, and I'm Maritime.
  13. 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.
  14. Now I am unable to sign in at all, is anyone else experiencing this?
