  1. Does anyone have experience with Saskatchewan IM? How is the program? Are you exposed to broad number of subspecialties (Geriatrics, oncology, palliative, etc?) Thanks
  2. Thanks Choap10 for your answer! May I ask which province you work in, and if you trained in +1 palliative care? How long have you been doing this for and have you been enjoying it so far? Of course I loved the encounters I have had in palliative care and I am also planning to do more extensive electives in it, but I worry that perhaps you burn out after many years of dealing with terminally ill patients. I am also meeting up with other palliative physicians to hear their experiences as well.
  3. Hey rmorelan, I would really appreciate that! Yes, sometimes I do feel guilty but given that I have $200,000 to pay off, and the unstable job market, I have to ask. Thanks again!
  4. I had a thread on it but no one replied so How much would a palliative care physician make? I am really curious because I have absolutely no idea.
  5. Hey guys, I am wondering if anyone knows what you could make as full time palliative physician or even part time. I love palliative care, and I do not need to make much money, but it would be good enough to be at equivalent to having a moderate size family clinic. And I do not think it's unreasonable to ask about future earnings as someone who may be interested in a field. Thanks!
  6. Yes, that is true for Ontario for the PGY1s. However, even in Ontario, if you matched via second round, you are eligible for transfer in PGY2 year (except family medicine). This is different from people who matched in first round in that you are eligible to transfer in PGY1 year after 6 months. No transfer if you matched second round - Is this policy specific to your school or Alberta/Calgary?
  7. I meant people who matched through the second iteration. They are not allowed to apply for transfer in first year.
  8. Is there a resident from calgary or u of A who is familiar with the transfer policy? More specifically, if someone matched second iteration, whether they would be still eligible to apply for transfer during PGY1 year? I read through the policies stated online and they do not mention any restrictions on people who matched second iteration from applying for a transfer in PGY1 year (which is prohibited in Ontario) Thanks!

  10. So it would be required for working in the states as well? i.e. licensing?
  11. I am currently a second year in a medical school in Canada, and many people are saying that they are going to write the USMLE for the fellowship purpose? I was just wondering why people write USMLE, given that it takes a whole summer of preparation? Is it a good idea to write the exam without aiming for a high score but to pass "just in case"? Thanks in advance,
  12. I don't regret going to US school because I have experienced a lot of things that I was not able to experience in Canada, like new culture, more research opportunities, shadowing opportunities, and academic opportunities. It's just US schools are smaller and endowments are larger, so you are exposed to more things. But if you are set on going to med school and not really interested in living in a different environment and experiencing new things, I would recommend you just go to Canadian school.
