  1. would highly recommend purchasing an osmosis prime account!
  2. Wow that's a long time. Did they tell you how you would make up for this time, or set out expectations for your time off?
  3. UofT has also cancelled remaining 4th year electives, but CC3s are to continue rotations until further notice. Are other schools handling clerks differently?
  4. Can you elaborate on the "very good" FM programs in Canada vs. some of the weaker ones if your goal is to practice rural?
  5. yup

    On Podcasts...

    any other suggestions?

  7. I don't think you're able to apply halfway through your MSc. From my understanding, UofT requires that you complete any started MSc prior to beginning medical school.
  8. I think it can help to provide them with a list outlining the CANMEDs competencies and asking if they can highlight traits/skills from that list!
  9. What would you recommend as some of the superior resources?
  10. As people have mentioned in other EM (5 years) vs. FM+ EM threads, it's not entirely practical to split your work between both family medicine and emerg at the same time. Instead, it sounds like most FM+EMs will work in emergency medicine for a given time, while having the option to practice FM down the road (if you become tired of the shift-work, if you're feeling burnt-out etc.) It also sounds like you have the desire to work/live one day in Toronto. As a FM+EM working in emergency, there may be less opportunity for future work in Toronto, especially in downtown academic centres. Would you be okay with working at a community site, or even 1-2 hours outside of Toronto? Would these community locations hinder your ability to conduct the research that you're interested in? And as others have mentioned, FM+ EM has become very competitive. If you were not able to get into this stream, would you be satisfied working entirely as a family physician?
  11. If someone drops from Hamilton, the new Hamilton spot goes to someone on the waitlist. Those who were offered regional campus spots will not be offered a Hamilton position.
