  1. Hi, I'm applying to uottawa med school this year, but as I'm studying in NB and enrolled in a french university I'm considered in the CNSF french stream. Has anyone been down this path and if so do I have a chance?
  2. Can anyone provide insight on choosing between Calgary and McMaster for med school? In terms of program, matching for residency after, heaviness of schedule, etc?  Any insights would be hugely appreciated! My friends and family are all closer to Mac but I think Calgary is a way more beautiful place to live.

  4. Hello everyone, I wanted to start a new topic about your experience at CEGEP because I would like to have a better idea of this whole new world. Please tell me which CEGEP you went to, how you managed to get through it and if you have any tips (schedule, courses, extracurricular). Also, I heard that it's possible to take some courses during the summer or even during another semester. The thing is, I heard that it is not recommended to take your CEGEP courses in more than 4 semesters, otherwise some med universities will refuse your application. Could you please give me more details about it? Thank you very much everyone.
  5. Does it require the MCAT? Because back in 2016 apparently they brought it back but in their website they say its not required. https://med.uottawa.ca/undergraduate/hidden/does-ottawa-require-mcat
  6. Hey, I have yet to see any threads asking this question so I thought I would bring it up. As a fair warning, i'm a Quebec student finishing high school, so I still have a while to think about the subject. As someone interested in health sciences, specifically medicine, there are indeniably far more opportunities and routes than before. Doctors aren't the only practitionners of medicine: NPs and PAs have expanded their scopes of practice and can suppliment a physician in certain cases. In the US it seems as though NPs can completely replace a primary care physician. However, in Canada scopes of practice are very different, especially in Quebec. So, what is the defining difference between the scope of practice of an NP and an MD, in Canada? For PAs it's quite simple; they practice under an MD. (At least from what I understand) I'm curious since i'll be choosing very soon what route i'll be taking. I lean towards medicine since becoming a specialist is what interests me. What roles exist for NPs in non primary care areas (Specifically things such as IM specialties and surgery) Do you think Canada will follow the US in integrating more expansive roles for NPs and PAs? Will PAs ever be integrated in all provinces or will the project be scraped? Thanks for any answers!
  7. Does anyone have any experience navigating the course load discussions? It says you need to have taken 10 courses in your last two years of undergrad (so 5 each term). My program would split courses into double so they could squeeze more classes into our degree (ie. FSN 706 would be two classes on two different subjects and we'd get two different marks). I did what most students did and did all my electives in my last year part time. So... i don't meet that course load requirement. They said they will allow for it if your program is structured differently, but it's a B. Des, so I feel like they won't be familiar with it. Anyone ever navigate this? Wondering if/who I should maybe sit down with to discuss whether I'm even able to apply... I also graduated way back in 2013 if that matters and have an MA since then
  8. Hi everyone! I was browsing YouTube today and I came across this video: I didn't even know that these videos existed but I thought that they were very fun and creative and also pretty motivational! I'm not trying to promote anything but I thought that this is just a pretty relatable video to watch as a pre-med, med student, traditional and non-traditional student. Just a little something that I thought I'd share if you have a little free time. I wonder if other schools in Canada have done similar things to these! I could only find the U of Alberta one and most of them are US schools. Have a nice day!
  9. Hey everyone, I'm currently an Alberta resident going to school at Arizona State University and set to graduate in Spring 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance. I've recently decided to look into the possibility of applying to med school in Alberta since becoming a doctor is something I've always wanted to do but didn't think possible. I haven't really taken any of the pre-reqs (being a business major and all) and have a 3.81 cGPA. I am at ASU as a D1 athlete which is why i never pursued a science undergraduate, and have one year of eligibility left after this to potentially knock off some pre-reqs or get some clinical or research experience. I've heard some schools like U of C and U of A don't require pre-reqs. I haven't written the MCAT but feel I could achieve an average or slightly above average grade if I studied hard for it. On top of that, I feel overall I have a pretty good resume considering extracurriculars serving in leadership positions on sports teams but no clinical or research experience. I would just like to get some thoughts on whether I even have a chance at getting into med school in Alberta and what I need to do to improve my chances. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  11. I am an electrical engineer with seveteen years of power sytem design experience and currently employed as an electrical engineer in USA. I am a Canadian with international education in electrical engineering. My major was power and my experience is all about working with substation design and engineering. I had a very rewarding career throughout my academics as well as through employers. I was 1st class 1st position holder (93% marks) in engineering, gold medal for presenting my final year work, several other awards. I passed my engineering in Sep-1999 and then started my engineering career in Jan-2000 and was named best employee of the year for 2001 and 2002 consecutively. I moved to Canada in 2006 and then got several awards with different engineering employers. Now, I have decided to change my profession and want to go to med school and wish to be a doctor. I don't know how hard it is to get in my foot but need someone to advise me what should be the first step towards that. Also, someone to give me an honest opinion that would it be impossible at the age of 43 to make this transition (considering age and process of med school). Please mention what and how should i proceed for this goal.
  12. Hi! I'm currently in my 4th year of undergrad in Health Sciences at Western and I was hoping I could get some feedback on how to boost my chances at getting into medical school in Canada (preferably Ontario). I realize my stats are quite terrible compared to many other applicants but I've been hell bent on medicine since I experienced a disability at the age of 4 and any advice would be greatly appreciated. This whole process is confusing and it doesn't help that there aren't really any guidance counselors that will help with this process (for free). Age: 21, M GPA: 3.0 from 1st to 3rd year, although my 4th year so far has been higher than my previous 3 years. MCAT: Abysmal, I'm redoing it this summer and giving myself much more time to prepare for it. ECs: Fairly strong, potentially getting authorship on my first paper, research assistant for a professor, lots of martial arts experience including teaching and participating in various clubs at uwo as well as a residence mentor/volunteer for first year students + Hospital volunteer work back in high school. Some other minor stuff, 3 years doing data analytics and reporting over the summer, working at a tech company, etc. In a previous post I made regarding whether I should go for a masters or a 5th year, nearly every comment said 5th year. I have a couple questions about that: 1) I just recently found out that some medical schools in Ontario weigh masters programs differently and they influence GPA in some cases. (UofT reduces the GPA requirements from 3.6 to 3.0), given my upward trend in GPA, do these considerations for masters make it more likely that a masters could benefit me more than a 5th year? 2) Some med schools look at cGPA exclusively, if I were to take a fifth year would that not just "dilute" my marks and potentially waste another 7k on tuition without significantly improving my grades (even if I did do really well in my 5th year?) 3) While my GPA according to the omsas calculator was 3.0, it was significantly dropped by one course I barely passed (biochem). The rest of my marks rarely went below a 75 (I realize that's still not GREAT, but the point is biochem killed the cGPA there), would this mean that some medical schools view my GPA as higher than 3.0 already? (3.0 is just what OMSAS calculator told me) With these things considered, is a 5th year still the way to go instead of a masters? Admittedly, I would much rather pursue a masters because it feels like progression to me but I'm worried it isn't the best thing for me to do in terms of medical school. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I have been in the process of finding a supervisor for a research based masters program at uwo but I'm not sure if it's best for me. Thank you very much!
  13. Hi there! Are you/do you know someone who got in med school in Quebec after completing the BSc. Psych Behavioral Neuroscience at Concordia? What are your impressions? Is it a good option for someone who’s trying to increase her current GPA (3.1/4.3 from BSc. Human Dietetics and Nutrition) to get into med school (hopefully Mcgill) ? Any advice would help! Cheers
  14. Okay so far I just had midterms and medicine has always been my dream. My parents actually have tried to discourage it from me telling me it takes too much time and they even told me to go to college which I ignored. Basically on reading week I got really sick and honestly this is really embarrassing to say but all of you are on your way to being doctors or already doctors so I will just say it. During my biology midterm I got a really bad case of diarrhea and I honestly rushed the midterm so fast because I had to get out of there. I ended up with a 63, my labs so far and assignments have all been in the 90's; but this midterm really brought me down. I got a 92 on my chemistry midterm because that was a while after and my stomach finally went back to normal. I haven't gotten my other marks for my other classes yet but right now I'm really discouraged because of this mark. If your GPA for your first year isn't good does that completely shatter your chances of medical school? Because honestly, I don't have a back up plan, I don't know what else you could really do with a biomedical degree if you don't pursue further education except be a biology teacher and even that requires teaching school and something I would not like to do. Honestly, everyone I've talked to about medical school keeps telling me not to do it my friend told me her brothers friend even killed himself when he was trying to get into med school and couldn't get in. It's scaring me but there's just something about being a doctor that intrigues me; yes money is obviously a plus but its not just that; I don't know I really want to help people; I want to be that doctor that people love to visit. Are my dreams shattered?
  15. Hey guys, so I have 2 solid LORs from my research supervisor and the CEO of a physiotherapy clinic at which I volunteered. I am having a bit of trouble finding someone else who I believe can be a good reference. Someone I have in mind is a coach I have for a small cricket league that plays other local teams and stuff (ie. its not something that gets much attention or funding or anything. Mostly just recreational stuff). He has known me for more than 10 years, and can definitely attest to my character. I don't know if it matters for me to use someone like that, as he won't have a letterhead or any sort of position in a company if you will. I am trying to apply to the med schools in Ontario and was wondering if someone can chime in on this. Also, can someone guide me towards other options and who I should contact as my third referee? I am coming up with nothing atm as I already have a prof and a volunteer reference. Any ideas? Thanks.
  16. Hi, I have some quick questions : Can you practice medicine after getting your MDCM degree ? What is the equivalent of the Med-P program at McGill in other universities? I was also wondering if it was better for example to do a Bachelor's degree in chemistry at McGill then transfer to UofT (or any other university) for med school, instead of doing Med-P at McGill and residency in another school. Also do you have to take.the MCAT at one point in the Med-P program? It's just that I don't understand the use of not doing it ; if you transfer to any other university, they will want the MCAT score so.. I don't know if the Med-P program prepares you well for the MCAT. Sorry if this isn't making sense. I can't seem to grasp the concept of a Med-P program. It's preparatory for what ? What can you do with a MDCM degree? Is med P med school or undergraduate? Please lighten me up, thank you. P.-S.: I have read everything on the internet about the program and I still don't understand it.. sigh.
  17. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has ever gone or know of students who have gone from Western's Richard Ivey School of Business to medical school? Would it be a wise choice of attending the HBA program and then applying to med school? Thank you in advance.
  18. Hey guys! I'm a UBC student from Vancouver going to be starting med school at Schulich in the fall. I'm a competitive horseback rider and am hoping to buy a horse and be at the barn about 4 hours 3-4 times a week. I also have a young golden retriever who needs a lot of care/exercise. I'm a pretty active outgoing person who goes out with my friends quite often, travels, hikes, etc. Just wondering whether you guys in med school think that maintaining this lifestyle is possible/realistic while having enough time to really focus on and excel in school. If there are any hunter/jumper riders on here, any recommendations on good coaches/barns nearby? Also is purchasing and leasing out my horse 3 days/week a bad idea (too much of a commitment). I know these are weird questions but, thank you!
  19. Hi, I posted this question in the general discussion topic yesterday, but I didn't realize there was a separate section for Ontario schools. Hoping to get a few more opinions. I hope it's okay if I double post, my bad if its not allowed. Apologies in advance for the long post. I'm super confused about what to do and don't know anyone IRL who can help. As the title suggests, I'm currently considering a few options for my application into med school. Here are my stats: UofT - 3.7 OMSAS cGPA, 3.85 Omsas cGPA last 2 years. MCAT:: 130/129/131/128 total= 518 Some Major EC: 2 hospital volunteers (2 years), 5 labs (1 year each), 1 Thesis ( worried about this as my mark was an 83, average for course was 85 - prof is a dick), and 2 publications. 2 bs clubs. Course load was not full, and I don't have prereqs like biochem. As you can see, my GPA is low, and my MCAT scores aren't high, so I didn't apply in September 2016. Current options: - I got into a Master's at UofT in CSB, so I could apply after doing this Master's. But, while in my CSB Master's I can also do the following and switch to 'better' master's programs: - applying to a PA (Phys assist) program, doing 2 years if I get in, and then applying to Med after - applying to a clinical Psych master's, and then applying to med after The reason why I wanna switch from my CSB master's into these is because they offer jobs if I fail to get into med. - I also have an offer for a Master's at LMP at UofT as well, but they need me to do some prereqs before I start but offer 1 more possible publication than my current CSB one, and its more clinical based. This would also waste another year but is a 'better' Master's. So essentially, my series of questions are: 1.) The classic question that triggers everyone: With a Master's from CSB, and my current stats, does it look like I have a shot at UofT med or Western? 2.) The ungrateful question: Would it be beneficial to spend the extra semester (and waste another year) to do the prereqs for the LMP master's at UofT and get better, more clinical based publications? 3.) Anticipating failure question: Would being in a clinical master's like Cpsych or PA be beneficial for applying because I could fall back on a usable degree and have more clinical experience for my med school app? Thanks in advance =D, and again apologies if this was long or if my questions are stupid.

  21. Hi all, I just have a question about possibly taking a 5th year in Undergrad at the U of M. Does anyone know how the U of M medical school view this on their application? Do they look down upon this? Does the U of M also consider the grades from the 5th year in their AGPA calculations? I was looking to take a 5th year since my current GPA is waaaay below the minimum requirement (even if AGPA is calculated). Please help! Thank you all!
  22. I wanted to make a list of medical school requirements (what/how many courses you need, what year they look at, any special eligibility to drop grades (e.g. UofT if you take a full courseload, you get to drop your lowest mark during that year), if school looks at your summer GPA. I have a makeshift list so far, but if anybody could add to it that would be great <3 When people starts adding, I'll finish with a nicer looking chart. Just need help with UBC Dalhousie (NOTHING): To be eligible to apply to Dalhousie Medical School, a full course load of five full classes in each of the two most senior years of the baccalaureate degree submitted for assessment is required. This must be the case regardless of the course load required by the program in which you are enrolled. Only fall and winter terms are used for assessment. Summer courses do not count towards GPA or course load requirements. No specific courses are required, but students are encouraged to pursue challenging and diverse topics, and to have a natural progression in their course selection of the degree being completed. McGill: 2 biology, 2 chemistry, 2 physics, 1 organic chemistry McMaster: An overall simple average will be calculated using the grades from all undergraduate degree level courses ever taken (with the exception of credits taken on exchange outside of Canada/USA). Work of different years is treated equally. This average is calculated by the applicant on the OMSAS Academic Record Form and verified on the OMSAS Verification Report which is sent to applicants. McMaster University may also review and revise this average. The marks from supplementary and summer courses will be included in the GPA calculation. Courses for which a "Pass" grade is assigned are counted for credit, but will not be included in the GPA calculation. In order for the GPA to be evaluated, independent grades from a minimum of 5 half-year or 5 full-year courses in total, are required, without which the application will not be considered. Queens: Degree programs or individual courses are not considered a factor in the calculation of GPAs Calculations include grades from all courses included on the transcript, including repeated courses Courses with Pass/Fail grades or transfer credits (including International Baccalaureate, Advance Placement and CEGEP programs) are not included No adjustments are made based on course load or course levels Calgary (NOTHING): The Cumming School of Medicine does not require that students undertake a formal pre-medical program. No specific courses are required for application or acceptance to the MD program. The admissions committee recommends that applicants consider taking as many of the courses listed in the Applicant Manual as their schedules allow, as the content of these courses will be helpful in preparing for the Medical College Admission Test and during the MD program. Whether or not an applicant has taken these courses at the time of application will not be taken into consideration in scoring the academic record. Students should ensure that the courses they choose satisfy the degree requirements of the undergraduate faculty in which they are registered. Manitoba (what?): The College of Medicine welcomes applicants from all provinces and territories. Up to 5% of the class will be selected from this pool. The Admissions Committee defines Out of Province as those who are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, but are not a permanent resident of Manitoba. Eligibility requirements remain the same for this applicant pool and you are welcome to apply if you meet or exceed the minimum requirements. However, the Admissions Committee discourages individuals from applying who have an AGPA lower than 3.94 and an operative MCAT score lower than 10.75. If you fall into one or both of these categories, you have a low chance of receiving an invitation to interview. You will need the science courses Chemistry 40S and Biology 40S or 40G in preparation for university studies. Many students also take Physics 40S in preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). In addition, you will need Math 40S (pre-calculus or applied) and definitely need English 40S or French 40S. Ottawa (need org chem for an equivalent of 2 full year courses of chem): One full year course (or two semester courses) in General Biology including laboratory session; One full year course (or two semester courses) in Humanities / Social Sciences; The equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. A full-time academic year where the equivalent of four (4) full-year courses is taken is accepted and counted in the WGPA calculation only if the missing course/credit is completed either as an additional course within another academic year or as a summer course. Individual courses taken during a summer session are accepted for the credit value in this instance however the mark obtained is not counted in the calculation of the WGPA. Any year with less than four full-year courses will not count as a full-time year of study. A full-time summer semester does not replace a semester of studies within an academic year. AP, IB and transfer credits are not recognized as fulfilment of full time studies requirement. Toronto: two full-course equivalents (FCEs) in life sciences and one FCE in a social science, humanities or language UBC: The fuck? 6 credits in english. How does this work. Is that 3.0 credits in English??? Western: Applicants must meet the minimum GPA in each of the two best undergraduate years with a full course load of 5 full or equivalent courses (30 credit hours) taken between September and April. Each of the two years used for the GPA requirement must have at least 3 full course equivalents whos e published level is at or above the year of study. For example, in your third year of study, 3 of 5 full course equivalents must be at the 3rd year-level or above. Academic transcripts must clearly show that applicants have met this course load/level requirement.
  23. Hello, I am wondering if someone can shed light on the GPA required to get into med school in Ontario. I know that different medical schools have different GPA requirements and calculate GPAs differently, but what is the general GPA required. Also, I find it difficult to covert GPA into a percentage grade and I am finding various charts online. Can someone please shed light on this. Also, for individuals accepted into medical school, what GPA did you have? I would like to mention that I am a first year pre-med student. Thanks!
  24. I'm just going to write in english to avoid confusion. Today I got an email from UdeM asking me to take the TFI french test. I am really confused because I didn't even receive an interview. The test isn't available in my province, so from my understanding, they want me to spend money on a plane ticket and a hotel to go to another province and write this test without a single guarantee of the interview? That is going to cost me A LOT of money! Is there any way I can know that this will be worth it? Like do you automatically get the interview if you pass that French test? Also, last year I applied to the French schools and just got rejected without them asking to write this test.. why is this? I'm sorry, I am just so confused and I am new to the Quebec system, any help would be appreciated
  25. Hey guys, I really need some help/tips/advice. Ok so, I wrote the MCAT this September, and I did pretty bad. Now with the sciences, I think I can prepare that on my own, but I really need help with the CARS section. My situation: I got 125 in the CARS section. I will be writing the MCAT again in August of next year. I have 1 year essentially, (I am also doing university this year, full-time; but I will also have the 4 months of summer to essentially work on the MCAT). How should I practice/prepare for the CARS, to make it 128+? Should I be reading a lot? What should I read? Should I do practice passages every day? I am usually getting like 1-2 wrong per passage; I am not sure how to clear/cross the threshold to start getting 0-1 wrong per passage. Even if I have the best passage and I feel really good on it, I will always have at least 1 wrong. Did you guys have that? How did you guys fix it? Thanks again for your guidance,
