Hello folks: I'll be starting M-1 this Fall at the UofA (Hooray). The faculty offers the option of doing a series of Summer electives in addition to the required elective courses. In this regard I would like to do some electives in Canada during the summer, but I have also been toying with the idea of doing a summer elective abroad, likely in the US or Europe. The process for signing up for Electives in-house, at least in the University of Alberta, seems fairly straight-forward but I'm kind of unsure how to try and snag electives in other locations in Canada or foreign electives in general. Are there additional fees incurred with Canadian/foreign electives apart from travel and lodging (I would assume so)? What is the application process? Is there any specific locations in the States or Europe that are friendlier to Canadians? How is the immigration paperwork for Canadian Citizens (I'm assuming at least in the US and UK, the process should be fairly straight forward)? I'm sort of at a loss on where to start looking or what to do first. Thanks in advance for the advice <Apologies for any typos.>
Hey, anyone here applying for QuARMS this coming year? We can use this thread to connect and get to know fellow QuARMS applicants. Here's some info that could be useful Grade (Probably 12, but you never know) High School Cumulative GPA (percent) Province ECs Research Experience/other med related activities you've pursued (yes, it's technically EC, but this classification is more medicine related which is much more important) What you think distinguishes yourself from the rest of the candidates And just curious, do you know QuARMS students or have a bit more info about the program not mentioned on the website? My info: Grade: 12 High School Cumulative GPA (percent): ≈ 95% Province: Ontario ECs: Volunteering (day camp for kids for 2 yrs, monthly marathons/large community events, Canadian Cancer society), a lot of in school work with Free the Children, leading science club in school, coaching/mentoring students through ecs + academics Research Experience/other med related activities: Research for nearly a year now, volunteering at a hospital for 2 yrs What you think distinguishes yourself from the rest of the candidates MAYBE this 1) Exploration of a larger variety of fields to show that I've considered medicine thoroughly 2) My goal is to craft my essay + personal statement really well so that aspect of myself (eloquence, self expression) is well represented and interesting, with an unlike perspective Honestly though, there are huge expectations for a student in this program, that while I am painfully aware that I will 99% not get in, I want to at least give myself the best chance in that 1%
