  1. I think all schools including Quebec are now pass/fail. Sherbrooke was the last one to change I think a year or two back.
  2. Surrounding the surgeon period. Let’s be cognizant of implicit gender biases.
  3. https://www.jobbank.gc.ca/marketreport/outlook-occupation/18196/ca <-- some objective data for you. From my pharm friends, they noted that hospital pharmacist positions are very competitive - local Canadian experience (not necessarily Canadian education) is normally required for hospital pharmacist positions. If you are ok with community pharmacy, I believe demand > supply in non-metropolitan regions and provinces noted in the link above (like MB, NB, etc.).
  4. Quebec does not have IMG/CMG streaming, hence all positions are called competitive. IMGs apply to the same positions as Canadian graduates in all disciplines in Quebec. To do so, you must be pre-approved by la Conférence des vice-doyens aux études postdoctorales des facultés de médecine du Québec. You also need to contact CMQ to be granted for equivalence for your MD abroad. There are many unfilled francophone family medicine positions in Quebec in the past few years (like many many many spots). So I do not think you will have a problem matching to FM in Quebec if you are francophone, even as an IMG. Good luck!
  5. I was told that it will be interest-only payments during the 24-month grace period. Then it becomes a traditional loan, which can be amortized up to 15 years, if I recall correctly. There exists an option to maintain the approved credit limit as a revolving facility by converting to a professional LOC for business. Example: if your student LOC limit was $300K; and you only used $100K by the end of residency. You are obligated to interest-only payments on the $100K for 24-months post-residency. After the 24-month period, they then convert the sum into a traditional loan and amortize it over 15 years max. Since your original student LOC limit was $300K, you still have $200K of room left, that $200K can be converted to a professional LOC for business.
