hopefulgirl123 posted a topic in CaRMS and CaRMS applicationsHi 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?
evans posted a topic in McMaster University Medical SchoolSo Mac is 3 years, no summers, plus a bit shorter on the clinical side. I was wondering if it this was a huge disadvantage in terms of getting competitive specialities? For one, we have a lot less time to do some research. Also, no summers might be a disadvantage for travelling to bigger cities (i.e.: Toronto) and meeting with program directors there. Can people chime in on whether or not it's harder to get competitive specialties from McMaster?
