Hi guys! Much gratitude in advance for the replies/advice/insight! I'm an M3 in Montreal, Med-P background, and only have eyes from Family Medicine. I just wonder too often whether, at this point, I'm strong enough of an applicant? I have no research experience, but do have years worth of community involvement (mostly from before Med-P, about 1 years worth during) and my own health literacy initiative. Apart from this, so far, my clerkship evaluations are good. I plan on pursuing electives that could help me refine skills that would make me a better Fam Doc. I am "well-rounded" with respect to my extracurriculars. However, that is about it. What can I do to make myself a stronger candidate? To match here in Montreal would be a dream, but I certainly will be applying broadly. To summarize, here are some questions I would hugely appreciate having answers too. 1) What makes a strong family medicine applicant? 2) Is research worth pursuing during M3/M4 given I have no previous experience? 3) Are some strong reference letters more valuable than others (i.e surgery vs psych vs fam med) 4) What do you recommend as far as electives for a Fam Med applicant? Thank you so much! Please excuse my anxious med-p energy (it's chronic).
Finishing my FM residency this year and considering my job options post-residency. It seems like most grads locum for 1-2 years before settling down but I'm curious as to what it would take to entice new grads to start their practice right out of residency. I have just been offered a position with a group practice where all the physicians are given 75% of their billings, and 25% is given to the clinic owner (who is not a physician within the practice) to cover the overhead costs. I have also been offered a $25k signing bonus if I can commit to 3-5yrs . The practice is in a suburban community with a population of roughly 30k. I will have full control over my hours and which days I choose to work. An extended medical/dental health plan is also provided. The above terms are negotiable but I have no idea what numbers to throw out there. I want to optimize my earnings but I do not want to be unreasonable. Any thoughts?
