  1. Hi all, I'm a CMG who is completing core internal medicine. I'm planning on applying to the US for my subspecialty (endocrinology R4-R5). Any idea what kind of score I should be shooting for for step 1? I've been told that I basically just need to pass/don't need a competitive score but I wanted to make sure that I'm shooting for the right goal! Thanks!
  2. Not matching in Quebec means defaulting into the 4 year GIM program. It is impossible to practice in Quebec with this, so if that had happened I would have become a GIM that worked somewhere else in Canada. All around that seemed pretty bad to me hence why I decided to back-up with something that I don't particularly want to do, but preferred when compared to the alternative outcome. Thanks for the info everyone and the support. It has been a very difficult few days so I appreciate it. Luckily my current IM PD seems to be quite knowledgeable about alternate routes I might be able to take to end up where I want to be one day. Whether it be attempting a transfer within Canada or applying to the US, I have a few options and I will do everything I can to pursue them.
  3. Thank you for your replies. I have gotten in touch with my PD who has been very helpful. Apparently the CaRMS contract is binding for 1 year, so I have the option of applying to the US IM match next fall or the year after. Meanwhile I will attempt to transfer into another seat in Canada if ever one becomes available. As for why I applied to a back-up I didn't want to do - it seemed better than not matching. I applied across Canada to my first choice specialty. No matching in Quebec means defaulting into GIM (which I even more so do not want to do) and not being able to practice in Quebec. And with an IM subspecialty no match (unlike with the initial CaRMS during medical school) it is not possible to take a year off (for example, to do research) and then to re-apply during the following cycle.
  4. The PD for my target program would be willing to write me a strong reference letter. Not sure how the PD of my current program would react but I don't want to discuss it until the possibilities are more clear. Is it even possible to break the CaRMS contract slash withdraw or would I have to complete fellowship for what I matched in and apply after?
  5. I'd definitely be willing to write the USMLES if it might help my chances. It's just that not that I've matched through CaRMS I'm not sure when and how I'd even be able to apply to the US?
  6. Hi all, 3rd year resident in internal medicine in Quebec here. Match day did not go well yesterday and let's just say I'm crushed. I applied across Canada to my first choice specialty and matched to my second choice specialty. I am now trying to damage control and figure out if it is in any way humanly possible to transfer programs. I understand that within Quebec there needs to be an open spot left in the program in order to transfer (which is very unlikely given the program in question). Does anyone know of any other options that I might have? I am willing to try absolutely anything crazy that might give me a chance at doing what I've wanted to do for the rest of my life since med school. Thanks in advance.
  7. Merci pour la mise à jour, 15step! Je me demandais justement jusqu'à où c'était rendu. Bonne chance avec ta maîtrise .
  8. Je vous laisse savoir que je n'ai pas reçu d'offre pour Montréal et je suis en quatrième place sur la liste d'attente du monde accepté à TR mais qui préfèrent Montréal. Donc, la liste ne doit pas avoir bougé de beaucoup.
  9. Merci Véro_ing! C'est bien ce conflit qui me mélangeait aussi quand j'ai trouvé les horaires sur le site de l'UQTR. Il y a aussi un cours de théorie de la personnalité qui se donne mardi de 12:00 à 15:00, donc ça se peut qu'on soit dans cette section au lieu de celui tard le soir. À plus tard Véro_ing et cherie136 .
  10. Bonjour, Quand j'accède à mes cours sur le portail de l'université de Montréal, c'est écrit "horaire particulier" sous chaque cours. Quelqu'un sait si y a moyen de connaître l'horaire des cours? ***Aussi est-ce qu'il y a des cours enregistrés?*** Merci!
  11. Est-ce que quelqu'un à eu un update puisque la date limite de la dernière vague est passée?
  12. Je viens juste d'appeler au bureau d'admission en médecine. J'ai une offre pour TR et j'étais 4ème sur la liste d'attente des universitaires non-connexes. On m'a informé qu'il fallait 5 désistements pour que je reçoive une offre pour Montréal. Info intéressant! C'est quand même beaucoup de monde et je doute que ça va bouger autant!
  13. Est-ce que quelqu'un sait si on accepte l'offre de TR s'ils nous gardent sur la liste d'attente pour Montréal? Je crois que je vais les appeler pour confirmer.
  14. Mon premier choix était pour Montréal et j'ai dit que TR était acceptable, mais de me garder sur la liste d'attente pour Montréal si mon offre était pour TR. Ça se peut très bien que mon avis de dépôt est pour TR. Je vais le savoir jeudi .
  15. Congrats Strawberry et Paper.Mango! Bizarre ça 15step, je te croyais 2ème sur la liste des non-connexes :S. Peut-être leurs mises à jours ne sont pas tout à fait terminées?
