  1. I was going through a list of information online about the advantages/ disadvantages of pursuing a PhD if you are dead certain about entering the field of academic neurosurgery. A curious trend I observed is that, it is possible to receive a PhD in neurosurgery while doing your residency. One of the big examples I can think of is Dr Michael G. Fehlings who is the Krembil Chair in Neural Repair & Regeneration at U of T. More info: http://neurosurgery.utoronto.ca/faculty/list/fehlings.htm How would one compare/ contrast this with the more traditional MD/PhD curriculum in terms of duration of the program? I ask this because I am wondering if a post-doctral fellowship ensues after a residency or if one has substantial research experience during both med, residency, and fellowship the post-doc is not mandatory? (Note: I made a similar post in the U of T med forum, but I was not sure where was most appropriate to make the post. I apologize in advance for any inconveniences.)
  2. June 30th is generally thrown around, but so far I can only find it in U of T and Western's policies. Does anyone know what the policy is at Mac? And how strict it is?
  3. Bonjour à tous! Je termine dans un an et demi mon PhD en neuropsychologie (thèse lié au domaine biomédical). Je souhaite appliquer en médecine après le dépôt de ma thèse, soit en décembre 2016. Par contre, seul mes notes du BAC seront considérées et je ne pourrai pas bénéficier du +2 à ma côte, car je n'aurai pas encore soutenu ma thèse (et donc pas encore le titre...). J'ai fais un BAC en psychologie avec une cote de 3.9/4.3... Je cherche des gens ayant un parcours similaire et étant entrés dans le programme de médecine via le profil ''phd obtenu ou en cours''. Serait-il possible savoir quelle était votre côte au BAC et la qualité de votre dossier de recherche (nombre d'articles, bourses, etc.)? Je dois faire quelques cours préalables également et je voudrais évaluer mes chances d'être convoquée aux entrevues (même si personne ne le sais vraiment!). Un grand merci d'avance! Pop
  4. Hi everyone! For anyone applying or have applied to the U of T MD/PhD program or who is/was a grad applicant, could anyone please provide any advice on how to format your academic CV? I know they posted guidelines, but I'm not sure if applicants should be following that exact layout. Alternatively, should we use our own CV format (e.g. add in our address, phone number like a traditional CV for the personal information section) and simply integrate the required headings? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello everyone, Sorry if it has been already discussed but I really need your comments on this: I've done my undergrad in Physiotherapy back in my home country. My converted GPA will be (I guess) around 3.34/4. After 3 years of practice as a physio I went to Belgium where I did my Masters on internal disorders rehabilitation. And now I'm finishing my PhD on exercise physiology and biochemistry of diabetes here in university of Alberta. I really want to apply for MD program next year and I'm not sure if this low GPA and rather broad professional and research background would give me any chances to get in a Canadian school?! What do you think? Thanks for your kind reply in advance.
  6. Hi everyone! Sorry for the long post, but just looking for some quick advice on grad school/applying! I'm currently finishing my first year of grad school in a 2 year thesis-based MSc in epidemiology. After a lot of discussion and contemplation, I've decided that I really want to apply to med school once I'm finished. However in a recent conversation with my supervisor, he suggested that my project was coming along really well and that if I transferred to the PhD stream this summer I could probably finish it in an extra year and a half (so 3.5 total, as opposed to 2 years for the Masters). I am enjoying the project, however given the timing of admissions (I'd probably finish in Dec 2017), I'm a bit torn on whether to delay applying for another 2 years to transfer. I am interested in pursuing research as a clinician, so that's why I'm drawn to getting the PhD as opposed to simply sticking with the MSc. However, I'm a bit unclear as to whether there would be a significant benefit to having a PhD vs MSc, especially since this will be before I start medical school and decide what to specialize in (for instance, my project is examining lung cancer outcomes, however I don't know at this point if oncology is what I'll end up in). I know I could apply for MD/PhD programs, however that would be an extra 3-4 years (vs 1.5) at this point, and since you typically start your research only a year into medical school, I think I might have the same problem about the focus of my research. Alternatively, I know if I apply now and decide later that I really do want to pursue the PhD, I could do so after medical school part-time or through one of the clinician-scientist training programs, so I'm not sure if that's a better option, especially considering the difference in funding/salary at that point. I think another issue that's drawing me to the PhD is that this would be my first time applying (if I applied this Oct, assuming I stick with the MSc), so I don't have the best idea what my chances of getting in this year are. My undergrad GPA is decent (3.88/4), and I do have a number of ECs and a couple of publications (not first author), but unfortunately most of my research activities (conferences, first-author publications) will be done this year after the October application deadline. I'll be writing my MCAT in late August, so I'd have to decide before I get those results. Thanks for any and all advice! TL;DR Applying to med school and want to do clinical research. Trying to decide whether it is worth it to delay applying for 2 years to transfer from MSc to PhD
  7. Hello fellows, I am interested in applying for medical school, however I'm wondering I would have a chance applying for medSchool @ Queen's university - even considering the "special admission" criteria for mature students with a graduate degree (PhD). I will summarize my background, so you can have a better idea of my profile. 30 years old; permanent resident; Finishing this month my PhD in Biomedical Engineering (studying applications of optical techniques into the characterization of atherosclerotic plaque development); B.Sc. in Medical Physics (from a very good international university - however, outside of north america); Masters degree (also from this international university). Several internships done (most of them as a volunteer) in hospitals; Experience in Radiotherapy (treatment planning, patient interviews, etc), Nuclear Medicine, Radio-diagnostics (X-ray, MRI, etc), quality control of imaging equipments, and general patient care - during such therapies; Undergrad Research project funded by a National Council for Scientific and Technological Development to study the effects of ionizing radiation in biological systems; Masters' GPA was maximum (took 5 courses, getting A+ in all of them). Master's project also funded by the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development; PhD's GPA is 4.0; Got several prestigious awards during my PhD (at international conferences, university, etc); Undergrad GPA: 7.1 (scale 1-10, where 5 was the minimum needed to pass a course); My undergrad GPA was the 4th best of my class (with a prize awarded). Currently, I hold a postdoctoral position and up to date I have 10 peer-reviewed published papers, 18 peer-reviewed abstracts, and several awards (based on research and academic merit). So, based on my "profile" I just would like to have a real idea about my possibilities there. I think my undergrad GPA is low for the Canadian standards, but what I have seeing is that unfortunately my former university has a different grade system; also, apparently making it "harder" to achieve the required >3.8++ GPA required for most medical schools in North America. I'm wondering if by having an already successful research-related career and by achieving high MCAT marks I would have a chance even considering my low undergrad GPA. Since I started my post secondary studies, I have been looking for a medical career. However, I am also very interested in research. In my opinion, after all these years of study, and by having a broad academic background I will be able to become a successful physician scientist. Due to all changes and challenges that happened in my life, I am finally able to continue my journey towards getting into medical school. And to do so, I would like to get some advice about which way would be the best way to proceed. Thank you very much for your attention. I am looking forward to hear back from you. I apologize for the long post.

  9. Did anyone apply to the MCDM-PhD program, and only get accepted to MDCM? (or does anyone know of this happening to someone?) I was looking over the 2015 admission stats, and I'm just wondering how people who apply to the MDCM-PhD program are considered by admissions. Is their MCDM portion of their application considered separately (pre and post interview) from the regular MCDM stream applicants (IP, OOP, NTP, etc.)?
  10. Hi everyone I am an international medical student and considering applying for graduate studies ( masters or PhD ) in a basic science in a canadian university do you have any idea how tough is it for international students to get accepted in these programs and finding funding for it ? will this (obtaining a PhD or masters from a canadian medical school ) can improve my chances in getting a residency in canada ? NB: i will be doing a 4 weeks clinical elective followed by another 4 weeks research elective at mcgill university in march 2015 and i hope i can build some connections out there so that i can find a supervisor to accept me in his lab as a graduate student
