  1. Just need a little insight on this topic. Is residency matching locational depending on medical school? Lets say you want to match into Emerg and your currently in McMaster...is it possible to match into hospitals/rotations in Toronto or are you 100% going to have to match into something in Hamilton? Therefore U of T Med students get the hospitals in the Toronto area. Correct me if I'm wrong Cheers, Victor
  2. Hi All, I'm a student in 5th year of Med school studying here in Poland at WUM and I hold a Pakistani Passport. I am aware of the fact that you MUST be a PR holder or have a Canadian Citizenship to be eligible to practice there as there are steep chances for IMG's especially non Canadians. I will be getting engaged in a couple of months and my fiance is studying/working in Canada, He would get his PR soon hopefully. So here my question goes, can I just go to Canada after graduating which will be in 2 years and start preparing for Carms and get a PR in the meanwhile and then apply to residency (it would take 2 3 yeard after I graduate) ? What would be the best advice in this case or if there is some other pathway I should opt for?
  3. Hi everyone, I am a consultant/coordinator for a new medical company that is aiming to help residents that have completed or are close to completing their residency take their next steps. One of the things I would like to coordinate is free monthly dinner and learns for residents that would be hosted by guest speakers who work in the field that cover topics which would be most beneficial for residents. The topics I think would be great are: Finding placements after residency, Starting your own clinic, and Medical/legal pitfalls. I also think the dinner and learns would be a great way for residents to make lasting connections. As you are all residents, I am wondering if you could give me feedback on these topics. If you were to attend a free dinner and learn, would you find these topics useful? What other topics would you want to learn more about? Would you even be interested in attending a free dinner and learn? Thank you for taking the time to read this post, I look forward to reading your replies!

  6. Any students who have gone through the matching process...does the medical school you attend affect the hopsital/location where you are most likely placed for residency? For instance, if i'm planning on practicing in Vancouver after recieving my degree, would I have a higher chance of getting into lets say "vancouver general" for my surgical residency if i was attending UBC medical school compared to something else such as McGill or McMaster? Appreciate any advice! Cheers, Victor
  7. Hi all, The CaRMS province-specific eligibility criteria indicate that Canadian citizens who graduate from an LCME-accredited medical school (i.e a US allopathic medical school, which grants an MD degree) are eligible for CMG-designated residency spots. For instance, the Ontario eligibility criteria webpage says "A Canadian Medical Graduate or U.S. Medical Graduate (CMG/USMG) is an individual who received their medical degree from a medical school accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS) or the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). From here on in this will be referred to as a CMG." However, the R-1 Match report graphs seem to tell a different story, with match results for applicants from US schools not being as favorable as match results for applicants from Canadian schools. For instance, Table 2 shows that only 40 applicants from a US medical school matched into a residency spot in Canada. More troublingly, Table 7 lists the number of CMG participants by school of graduation, and no US medical schools are listed. The provincial eligility criteria webpages seem discordant with the R-1 Match reports. Given this, could anyone tell me: If Canadian citizens who graduate from a US allopathic medical school are eligible for CMG-designated residency spots (Assuming the answer to q1 is yes:) Are there any 'soft barriers' that hinder a Canadian citizen with a US MD degree from matching into a residency spot in Canada? For instance, lack of developing a professional network with Canadian doctors, or something along those lines? Ultimately what I'm interested in knowing is whether going to a US allopathic medical school would impede my chances at getting a residency spot in Canada. Thanks for any help!
  8. Hi, What is a pediatric residency like? Especially in Quebec? Hours? Lifestyle? Job market afterwards? How competitive is it considered?
  9. Hi 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?
  10. 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.)
  11. Hi, Does anyone know definitively how UofT Dental determines your province resident status (IP vs OOP)? Do they use an OHIP card (or other official means) or do they base it on your listed address for your application? Based on searching through these forums, it sounds like people are saying that those with an Ontario address are listed as IP (in province resident). If this was the only determinant, wouldn't it be easy to list a family member's or friend's address (whom you visit once or more a year) for your application even though you spend most of your time in another province? It just seems a little wishy-washy. Thanks, M
  12. I'd just like a second opinion (apart from what I understand). The UofA website says: >"A resident of Alberta is defined as a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident (Landed Immigrant) who has been continuously resident in the Province of Alberta, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories or Nunavut for at least one year immediately before the first day of classes of the term for which admission is sought. The one-year residence period shall not be considered broken where the admission committee is satisfied that the applicant was temporarily out of the province on vacation, in short-term employment, or as a full-time student. Applicants on study permit cannot establish residence during a period as a full-time student in an Alberta secondary or postsecondary institution because a stay under study permit is considered to be a visiting period." I lived in Alberta for 30 months consecutively as a full-time student under a study permit. So from what I understand, I'm considered IP at the UofC but not UofA?
  13. Hey guys, so I'm IP BC. Wondering if I work for 6-8 months rurally within Ontario or Alberta whether I'd qualify for Ontario or Alberta residency and rural considerations? If I got Ontario/Alberta residency, do I get to keep my BC IP one if I'm back in BC and working by April / May next year? I will simultaneously be doing online schoolwork out of BC universities. What would be decent, competitive IP stats for Ontario and Alberta? How many weeks out of each month, or months out of the year would I be required to live/work in either place in order to get my residency? Am I better off aiming for Alberta residency rather than Ontario? Thanks

  17. Hi everyone! I was just wondering if theres any time off between clerkship and residency? If not typically, is there a way to take time off between the two in order to gain some life experiences (travel, volunteering etc)?
  18. I'm a female MS3 interested in OBGYN, but worried about the lifestyle and work-life balance. My main interests are Obstetrics (clinic, deliveries) and Gyne (clinics, procedures). How do I approach the issue of the busy and difficult schedule of an OBSGYN vs the desire to have more than sufficient time for family and eventually kids where I could be involved fully in their lives without stressing to find time.
  19. Hey everyone. I am a fam med resident and am looking into some high-yield extra training to do before I graduate. In a perfect world, it could be done online, is inexpensive and provides a certification at the end that I can put on the CV but any recommendations that meet all, any or none of these would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if this has been asked before but new courses are popping up all the time. Thanks!
  20. Hi, I'm a second year medical student. I've heard about Return of Service contracts for CMGs who do their residency in Quebec, but have done their medical school elsewhere in Canada. I'm interested in a specialty that doesn't have many residency spots, so the ones available in Quebec interest me (I speak French), but I'm concerned that I may be forced to stay in the area for years afterwards. I've looked online but couldn't find a good source on this topic. Does anyone have any information on this (or is it even true)? What are the contract's terms and penalties? Are there similar contracts in other provinces? Thank you!
  21. Can anyone comment on the options available to them for mortgages during residency? The rent-vs-buy debate aside, has anyone explored the options through the big banks or brokers? I'd be particularly interested to know how pre-existing debt on a med-student line of credit affected your options (size of the mortgage, ability to go with a mortgage broker vs. having to stick with the institution providing the LOC) Thanks!
