  1. Hi all, I got accepted to med school in Canada this year first time applying, and since then I've been working on a massive premed package that includes all the Khan Academy (KA) notes (complete), supplemented with a personal spin to make things easy. The package also includes my schedule, my activity log, a score predictor, 100 helpful reference documents with mnemonics and graphics of common topics, formulas, interview prep, cars tips ethics... everything that got me from premed to admitted, and now I'm passing it on to you. You can find it all here: UltimatePremedPackage.ca I hope this is helpful for you all! Please let me know if you have any questions or queries.
  2. Title pretty much says it all. I'm a MS1 at Schulich, and last year I made a website with all my MCAT resources and all my interview resources too. I'm guessing if you're reading this you've already done the MCAT, but you might find my interview prep materials useful. You can find it all here - https://ultimatepremedpackage.ca/interviewing/ Please let me know if you have any questions! Of course, I can't tell you what questions they asked me, etc., but I can give general information about the day or whatever. I might see some of you for your interview day, but if not - good luck! You'll do great!
  3. Hi everyone, Can anyone recommend some great podcasts that are good for CASPer? Any relevant ethics podcasts? Thanks so much in advance.
  4. Hi All, Soooo now that i got into medical school I really wanted to give back to the premed 101 community and share some of my experience with other people on this forum. I thought I would post a thread about how I prepared for my Casper test this year to answer some of your questions. I started roughly 2 months in advance 1) Read doing right... i read the whole thing and talked out-loud about the case studies in the books with friends/family 2) I would play with typing websites (i.e. typeracer) to speed up my typing 3) I bought Astroff practice tests and other practice tests and did about 8 of them... In my opinion this really helped me with timing and articulating my thoughts... I reviewed the tests and my answers with friends/ med students to get their feedback on what they thought 4) Prepare a document answering the following questions to help brainstorm for the personal stations Note: These questions are random things I came up with/ got from other resources... it is a good idea to just think about significant situations in your life where you learnt/ grew in some way... below are guiding questions: A time you dealt with conflict what are your strengths/ weaknesses a time you had a conflict with authority a time you collaborated effectively a time you lost your integrity a time you felt awkward future goals a time you demonstrated professionalism overcoming a difficult situation when you were unjustly criticized a time you took initiative were asked to do something that conflicted with your values a role model you have brainstorm about how you support others in difficult times a time you failed That is pretty much how I prepared.. I am open to answering as many questions as I can you can PM me or comment below Some useful links: Websites and Resources: Free practice test on this website: https://www.apetest.org/us/product/casper-sim-for-the-mind/?c=f64cca7c8fbc Casper sample questions: http://www.caspertest.com/casper-sample-questions/ http://bemoacademicconsulting.com/casperprep http://www.caspertest.com/casper-sample-questions/ Really good advice and link to practice tests: http://www.mockcasper.ca/casper-guide/ Bioethics link: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/eppp-archive/100/201/300/cdn_medical_association/cmaj/series/bioethic.htm Sample videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWfDgu8nIF0 http://www.medhopeful.com/archive/mcmaster-casper-2012-4-sample-videos-and-my-thoughts/

  6. Hi everyone, I hope all your interview preparations are going well. I'm currently a 2nd year med student at UBC. Awhile ago, after the faculty decided to matriculate me, I found myself with a large stash of notes from my own interview prep. It felt criminal to let all that go to waste so I decided to type some of it up. Of course, I then promptly forgot about the whole thing until recently when I found out that my page was getting an enormous of hits from I presume, anxious med applicants. So here's some tips/advice/case studies. When I was applying I found that the vast majority of information on the internet were either inaccurate, speculation or too anxiety-ridden to be reliable. The sieving process was unpleasant to say in the least and I don't wish the same fate on you guys. To the best of my knowledge, the information here is accurate and is borne largely from my own experiences applying. I'm not sure I would answer some of the questions the same way nowadays, but nevertheless, here it is. I hope this helps you during your prep. http://terriblemedstudent.blogspot.ca Best of luck. Ted
  7. Anyone doing or have done the CASPER this October? What're your thoughts on the following scenarios: (Oh and these are not real questions on the casper, so don't worry about breaching confidentiality/legality) (Oh and if you are one of those people whose generic answers to any query on this forum run along the lines of "nothing you can do about it now" or "don't worry about it so much," please do so elsewhere lol. You're not helpful and are full paternalism). 1. "Imagine you've tasked with determining who should be allowed to view a patient's charts. What criteria should be used to determine which individual should be provided access to that information?" I thought of those directly involved in patient care - doctors and nurses treating him/her. I thought of the medical secretary and receptionist, if they have to liaise with the pharmacy. Who else should be able to access charts? Apparently more should be involved - can you think of any? And what should be the outline or guideline surrounding who can/can't access the charts? 2. So you see a family friend at the clinic you're interning at (you're on call/duty). You're concerned, but you know not to go and approach them. Now, why is maintaining confidentiality important? (Apparently my response on maintaining privacy and confidentiality (to not go and say hi) could have been supported with a why). 3. You're a nephrologist at a kidney transplant centre. A wealthy patient of yours doesn't want to keep waiting on the (long) transplant list, so contemplates going to India to pay for one. Comes into the office seeking your opinion. What concerns, ethical & medical, would you have? (I said: Legally = no such law against it exists. Ethically, I said richer patients might thus have differential access. Medically = I wouldn't be part of the operation and so can't say with confidence the safety/success of it, and that I would have to look into it more before giving advice). Thoughts? <-- BUT, "do you think tax payers should be responsible for paying for complications involved? explore further." Also: Currently there are no policies against patients seeking transplants outside of Canada. Should such policies exist?
  8. Hi, I just completed 1st year at UTSG, and I'll be double majoring in HMB health and disease and Cell and molecular biology. I was just wondering if it is worth it to keep my Bioethics minor as well (which ultimately brings no room for electives) or should I drop it and just take a couple of bioethics courses that interest me? Personally, I think bioethics is interesting, but I don't like the idea of taking elective unrelated philosophy courses to complete the minor. Thank you for taking the time to read this! P.S Is a double major in HMB and CMB do-able? (not necessary to answer)
  9. Hey everyone! I was a YorkU student who is going to UofT med next year. I got accepted out of my third year. As you all know, tuition is very expensive and I need to make some money on the side. Thus, I am offering different services such as OMSAS application review, tutoring, interview prep, general consultation sessions etc. Here is a link to my kijiji ad: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-tutor-language-lessons/markham-york-region/premed-services-for-anyone-who-wants-to-get-into-medical-school/1083977349?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true Message me if interested! The official email I use is in the ad
