  1. The six year combined program sounds really interesting. I am aware Dalhousie has a program like this. Do you know of any other schools in Canada which have a similar program?
  2. Hi all, Thinking that I will very likely be applying to radiology, although I have a few unanswered questions I was hoping to get some help with: 1. I was wondering how much residency location matters for job prospects (ie. if I do residency in Ontario/East Coast school and eventually want a job in BC/AB/other side of the country)? Would doing residency in a different province than my end goal restrict my job prospects, even if I end up being a reasonably competitive job applicant by the end of residency? What if I did a fellowship in the area I want to work? 2. What makes a competitive job applicant in radiology (ie. is it residency location/fellowship status/fellowship location/research productivity/LoRs)? 3. I know the job market will wax and wane in the next 6-8 years before I would end up in the job market, but is it currently very difficult to get jobs in big cities (I'm thinking of Toronto/Vancouver)? Thanks
  3. Does this call amount/difficulty differ by residency program? Also, how much vacation time is typical for jobs in radiology? Thanks!
  4. It really doesn't matter what undergrad classes you do, just do the classes you feel that you could do best in grades wise. You will learn what you need in medical school. I did my undergrad in chemistry (so lots of organic chem, spectroscopy etc.) and found no issues at all learning the material in medical school.
  5. I see, thanks for clarifying! Had to do more digging from just viewing the actual radiology elective to find that out though, which is annoying,
  6. Browsing the AFMC electives in radiology. I am from Hamilton so wanted to do a Mac elective next year. However, I found it very odd that Mac has a non-refundable fee of $775. Why is it this much, when other schools are $100-200?
  7. Thanks for the information @rmorelan! Where do I find info on which states need the USMLE?
  8. @rmorelan How do you get ABR licensed? I'm interested in telerads eventually. Do most telerads jobs in the US need USLME to be completed? Or would doing a fellowship in the US make it easier?
  9. I'm a Canadian med student looking to go into radiology. I was wondering how useful writing the USMLEs would be for fellowship/jobs in the future? Additionally, I was wondering if telerads jobs available in Canada? As I am hoping to keep my options open and may consider telerads in the far future, would it be necessary to write the USMLEs?
  10. I know that radiology has really been dropping in competitiveness lately... What I want to know though, is how I can be the best looking applicant for my top choice schools? What are they looking for? How much does research matter? Haven't dipped my feet in research yet but I will. Do pubs matter in radiology? Currently M2 and have really taken an interest in radiology lately. Thanks!
  11. How much do you think the increasing volume will affect lifestyle (hours wise) in the next 5-10 years? I'm interested in rads but I guess I don't really have a full perspective on what lifestyle is like now, and what it will be like. Maybe you could chime in too @rmorelan!
