  1. Hope you dont mind I add one more question: Is a fellowship or more necessary for a good job ?
  2. I have been in the OR before but in a very demanding specialty that I will never do. Would be cool to see others though.... probably wouldnt do it first year I think. I think I didn't get anything from it because I didnt even know what the instruments were or what the procedure is. It's just standing and looking at a screen idk
  3. I would probably try things in a process of elimination. Like for example rheumatology. No clue what they do on a daily basis. But what if it's actually really cool??!
  4. Yeah that's true. I am one of those people that has no idea what to do so :/
  5. Hoping to hear from some upper year students I'm suspecting it's more of a "some med students are doing it so I should be doing it" than actually it being useful For example say I shadow an ENT doc in the OR and clinic. Not for 1% of the time will I know what is going on . How can I tell if it's something I'm interested ?
  6. Are they recommended or necessary? Seems like there is a lot of fuss around planning these among first year med students. I honestly cant see the use of doing them in first year since I dont know anything about anything medicine related. Should I think about "booking" some ?
  7. I am genuinely surprised that you have never seen/heard of people being discriminated based on their skin. I'm not a visible minority but I have seen it happen countless times. I can only imagine how dehumanizing it feels. Of course being poor sucks - it's another layer of difficulty. Now add being discriminated because you aren't white and you are also poor. These people are living much more difficult lives than I can ever imagine (even though I am not rich). We need doctors that can serve underrepresented populations
  8. It's ethically the right thing to do but not a good look for collegiality
  9. royal college is 15k in 5th year of residency XD Probably 20k by the time we get there
  10. Thank you! Felt a bit in the dark with this (apparently popular! tool)
  11. Thanks! Is there anything specific to Canadian med schools or step 1 and step 2 for US are similar enough ?
  12. I keep seeing zanki, anki thrown around for medical school learning. I did google it and watched some videos about what it is. Wondering if it is something that current med students use? Should I be looking into learning how to use it ? Thank you
  13. Being an "older" incoming med student (mid 20s) I share some of your feelings. For me something I cannot compromise is my next two summers. I want to have them off to travel. Its important to me and I was and still am very sad I wasn't able to do it this summer. I worked my ass off every year and summer so far (bachelor, master). I will have to spend money to do this. It's the first time since being out of high school that I'm not gonna be making any money... it's scary but I would live a life of regret if i didnt spend part of my 20s travelling
  14. I'd say that if you delineate very clear expectations from the beginning it should be ok. Establish authorship before starting anything "I want to take the lead, are you ok with being second author?" Establish how much work for each author Establish a clear timeline Document EVERYTHING good luck! Edit: doing collaborative work can be fun :-) sometimes it sucks but i can be a good story for carms?
  15. It was about registration. But I found out my answer! Sorry I dont know how to delete the thread
  16. Yellow pants might be a bit too crazy for me
  17. You seem to know a lot about yellow! What does it match with ? Blue, brown? Tears of joy ?
  18. When will we get the backpacks? Orientation?
  19. You know everybody is just joking right? Im sure 99% of people are truly grateful - it's just stuff to talk about while we wait for med to start
  20. Does uwo ever send a full class email? Sorry for giving anybody any scares with this post lol
  21. Were you able to get it covered via ohip ?
