    USMLE

    Review
  2. I am really having a hard time ranking the family sites, I keep rearranging my top 10 esp with mac, Ufot, and Queen's sites! Would somebody be able to comment on their experiences at any particular sites for those schools such as - Queen's Oshawa and/or Peterborough site! The presentations were amazing, especially Oshawa! - Mac's peripheral sites like Niagra, Halton, Kitchener-waterloo etc. - UofT's newmarket and Barrie, and some GTA non-downtown sites If anybody has any insight or could speak to their experiences in terms of learning to service ratio, customizability, calls, the city/town etc. I would really appreciate some help with ranking (and probably others in this forum that are also in the same boat!) Thanks so much!

  8. Hi All, I'm a student in 5th year of Med school studying here in Poland at WUM and I hold a Pakistani Passport. I am aware of the fact that you MUST be a PR holder or have a Canadian Citizenship to be eligible to practice there as there are steep chances for IMG's especially non Canadians. I will be getting engaged in a couple of months and my fiance is studying/working in Canada, He would get his PR soon hopefully. So here my question goes, can I just go to Canada after graduating which will be in 2 years and start preparing for Carms and get a PR in the meanwhile and then apply to residency (it would take 2 3 yeard after I graduate) ? What would be the best advice in this case or if there is some other pathway I should opt for?

    Conferences

    I know presenting at conferences is a good way to boost your CaRMS application, and to demonstrate interest in your preferred field. However, is it worth adding conferences as an attendee? For example, if it is at a more prestigious conference in the field you are hoping to enter, does that reflect well on you?
  11. Hi All, I've been eyeing rad onc for a while now and since I'm approaching clerkship I figured I should try to learn more about the field. I've shadowed about a week total in a few different tumour groups/ clinic types, but I wanted to hear from residents and attendings from other clinical sites as well. There are a lot of things I really enjoy about rad onc. I like how research driven the field is, the cool tech, working with cancer patients, being able to provide therapeutic treatments, making a discernable impact in the lives of people dealing with a life threatening disease, qnd seeing some of my patients get better because of my care. The lifestyle is also a big plus along with being able to have some geographic flexibility when choosing a residency. I also have some concerns about the field that I was hoping some of you would be able to comment on. It feels like there isn't as much of a diagnostic aspect in rad onc, with most patients already being diagnosed by the time they get to you. I like the diagnostic element of medicine, using your knowledge base to work through a differential and uncover what's going on, etc. and I was worried I would miss that. I'm also worried about having to deal with bad outcomes as I'm not sure how I'll handle having to deal with something like that regularly. I've heard the job market is opening up, but I'm very geographically limited and it's one of my top priorities to be able to live in my home province, is being that geographically constrained feasible in rad onc? I also have some concerns about the future of the field, the rad onc forum on studentdoctor is very doom and gloom with a lot of attendings expressing their misgivings about the field, is the climate in Canada comparable? I see a lot about declining indications for radiation, increasing uptake of hypofraction, and an increasingly saturated job market. I like some aspects of how the clinic pace is, in that I feel like you're never rushing through patients and they're getting the time they need, but on the days I shadowed we would spend maybe an hour of a three hour clinic seeing patients (rad oncs salaried in my province), with a lot of breaks in between. I was wondering if you feel stimulated enough day to day, or if start feeling really bored by the slow pace. I also had some general questions about rad onc: -how interesting is planning and doing brachy, it seems really cool on paper but some attendings have mentioned they find it pretty boring -what led you to go into rad onc? -what do you enjoy about the field? -what do you dislike about the field? -what is a typical week like for you? (Time spent in clinic, contouring, meetings/tumour boards) -what advice do you have for a medical student considering rad onc
  12. And so it begins. The waiting game one more time. Good luck to all of us and I sincerely wish that come March 1st we should all have our dream come true.
  13. Hi, I'm in the process of creating my rank list and I was hoping to get some guidance. I am applying to internal medicine across Canada. The only programs I did not get an interview for was Toronto and Mac, which is unfortunate because my family is in the GTA area and I eventually want to establish a practice there. After going through all the information session, I feel that I have a pretty good idea of the strength and weakness of each program. My question is: should I take into consideration where I want to practice in the future into my ranking of programs? It does seem that training at U of A/Calgary/UBC will give me a wide exposure to different pathologies as oppose to Queen's/Western. However, If I eventually want to come back to the GTA area, should I stay at an Ontario school instead of going out west or the maritimes? Is it that much harder to match back east for MSM in Ontario? What about for future job prospects, would it be harder to get a job in Ontario if all your training in on the west coast? Thanks!
  14. Are programs required to inform you of their Royal College Status if it is provisional or intent to withdraw? On the tour I have heard of U of A Radiology being on intent to withdraw status and am not sure what the implication of this is or whether it is true.

  18. Wondering if anyone has done or heard anything about ICU electives at St.Paul's? I'm looking to do it in my 4th year elective and just wondering what people thought about the rotation
  19. Any elective advice for someone who is looking to match family med at McMaster (or somewhere in Southern Ontario)? I've heard it's good to be diverse, but maybe some electives are better than others? Thanks in advance!
  20. Hi everyone! I thought it would be interesting to have an updated discussion on how to be competitive for CaRMS and hopefully match to the specialties we're shooting for. The medical field is constantly changing and I think it would be beneficial to have more updated discussions about how to prepare for CaRMS. We all know that CaRMS can be a stressful time for many. I would like to hear more from others about how to prepare a strong application for CaRMS. This discussion can include anything from research, extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, hobbies), clerkship, electives, LOR, interviews, etc. I know that this topic can be quite subjective, but I would love to still hear from you all. Any information helps! To help categorize the information, it would be great to hear if you're a current med student, resident or other. Thanks for your help! What do you think makes for a competitive CaRMS application?
  21. "I have a fully-furnished spare room for rent in my 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house in East College Park of Saskatoon, which is a 10 min drive/20 min bus ride to RUH, + a few minutes to SCH, and about a 15 minute drive to SPH. All hospitals are also connected by an efficient shuttle system should you be reliant on public transit. I am a 4th year medical student, and I live in one of the rooms (when I’m not away on electives, which is 75% of the time). I have a longterm tenant who’s a friendly and mature engineering graduate who lives in the second room. My house has ample street parking, a beautiful backyard with a fire pit, and all utilities + amenities would be included for $200/week. My home is very conveniently and centrally located in a quiet, family-oriented neighbourhood: near RUH/SCH and 8th street/Broadway Ave/downtown (where all the action is!). I live a walking distance away from groceries, my favorite cafe for coffee+studying purposes, and there’s a very nice bike/walk path near my house for the runners out there. Of course, the bus system can get you anywhere else you need to go, and the closest stop is a 3 minute jaunt from my front door. I have tons of other tips and recommendations for things to do/see, and would even be able to show you around if I’m in town during your stay!

Looking specifically to know how competitive, intense, innovative the programs are and what kinds of opportunities are offered. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  23. I'm a female MS3 interested in OBGYN, but worried about the lifestyle and work-life balance. My main interests are Obstetrics (clinic, deliveries) and Gyne (clinics, procedures). How do I approach the issue of the busy and difficult schedule of an OBSGYN vs the desire to have more than sufficient time for family and eventually kids where I could be involved fully in their lives without stressing to find time.
