    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    When do exams end in December? I checked the schedule on Minerva, but class stop around the first week of December.

    Q&a With Mcgill Med Ambassadors

    I am trying to book my flight back home for Thanksgiving well in advance before fares becomes expensive. I am planning to leave on the Friday (October 5). Does anyone know if there are normally anything mandatory on Fridays (i.e., exams, labs, LFME meet-up, etc.)?
  3. Vous trouverez le site ci-dessous: https://www.sogemec.qc.ca/en/etu/produits/medical-student-disability-insurance.html mais je pense que c’est moins bon que celui d’AMQ. Mais celui d’AMQ a un premium qu’on doit payer chaque année.
  4. @Eudaimonia you should join the QMA. There’s a plan with Vigilis. Alternatively, you can try Sogemec which is the preferred insurer for the FMEQ (the CFMS equivalent for Québec). Sogemec is free for all 4 years of medical school.

    Success rates?

    Did anyone else notice that the success rate for OOP students at McGill is actually lower than that for international (visa) students for 4 out of the past 5 cycles.. that's weird.

    Question Re Salary

    Why would there be PGY-6, -7, -8, and -9 years? Aren't they fellows?

    Applying while doing masters?

    Just noticed this now, why does McGill award MDCM as opposed to just an MD?

    IP is moving faster than historical average and OOP is moving slower than historical average.
  11. I almost prefer all 17 schools having one centralized system. Let's say all results are released May 1 with those having multiple offers given 2 weeks to decide. This will not only help candidates, but also remove a lot of information asymmetry across medical schools.
  12. Some schools like McGill have very good transparency; they give you your exact position on the waitlist and update their website concurrently with data such as "next offer will be extended to ## on the waitlist". I almost feel like this is one way reduces stress and increases transparency.

    Merci!! mais je pense que je devrait accepter l'offre d'Ottawa avant le 22 mai.. est-ce que quelqu'un sait que l'on peut continuer a tenir sa place sur la LA a McGill si on accepte ailleurs?
