  1. Does TD still offer a $500 Amazon gift card when you sign up with them for their LOC? I remember they had that offer last year, does anyone know if that is still the case?
  2. Because the Fifth Pathway Program ceased issuing certificates in 2009.
  3. https://mk0nrmp3oyqui6wqfm.kinstacdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Advance-Data-Tables-2020.pdf 7 CMGs matched in the NRMP 2020. (12, 5, 7, 13 - 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, respectively)
  4. A judgment has been rendered by the Health Professions Review Board on this case: http://canlii.ca/t/j1hkd (Applicants v. College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia). [62] In making this decision, I have considered all of the information and submissions before me, whether or not specifically reiterated herein. [63] I find that none of the Applicants applied for registration in any class of registration of the College and that no registration decision was made by the Registration Committee. I have therefore concluded that there is no basis on which the Review Board can conduct a review or make any order pursuant to s.50.54 of the Act. Accordingly, I hereby dismiss the Applications. [64] Given my decision, it is not necessary to decide whether the Review Board can grant the remedial relief sought in the application for review, as amended in the alternative by the Applicants reply submissions, or whether Applicant No. 3 has standing to file an application or should be allowed to intervene in the application pursuant to s.33(1) of the ATA. [65] I have treated the Applicants’ Letter, including the material on the disc delivered with that letter and all submissions made by the Applicants to the Review Board with respect to this review as having been delivered and made on behalf of the Individual Applicants. If I had decided that Applicant No. 3 had standing or should have been granted intervener status, the outcome for that applicant would have been same as for Applicants No. 1 and No. 2, given the basis for my decision.
  5. Scope encroachment will only progress further and further. To my knowledge, PAs currently are not regulated/legislatively recognized in Canada - but I think this will end in a matter of a few years. I have had the privilege with working with a few NPs to date - some are very knowledgeable and collaborative while some are borderline misrepresenting themselves. I think what Quebec has currently is what I would be comfortable with: NPs can dx 6 common chronic conditions (like hypertension, asthma, diabetes, etc.) and direct management. The fact that NPs can prescribe controlled medication in Ontario boggles my mind a little bit. If government is only seeing NPs as being the cheaper alternative to FPs, you might as well fold the family medicine discipline and just have NPs do primary care and just directly all MD grads to do a RC specialty lol
  6. Can people comment on their general debt level progressing through medical school? Aggregate debt (LOC + government loans and other loans) $ please. I have heard to aim for debt level of $25K per year: so $25K total debt in M1; $50K in M2; $75K in M3; and $100K in M4.
  7. What's the point of being an FP when NP are getting ever-expanding scope of practice? Why should MDs be debt-ridden when they can do a BScN work a few years then do a MScN to become a nurse practitioner and probably make more than an FP with benefits? I am all about teamwork, but where does this leave for the role of a "family physician"?
  8. I was wondering what the career difference is for someone who did IM+ID vs. someone who did MedMicro? Can't someone who have done residency in MedMicro technically be able to do ID control etc?
  9. Looks like the Society of Canadians Studying Medicine Abroad (SCSMA) has filed a suit against various parties involved in the MedEd and matching process arguing the CMG/IMG streaming is unconstitutional. http://socasma.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Petition-filed-copy.pdf
