  1. Just wondering if anyone is heading to GCU for OT/PT? Thought it would be a good idea to have a place to ask questions and discuss the process of moving from Canada to the UK!
  2. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone accepted their offer to the MSC Physiotherapy program at the University of Brighton for this year (2019)? If so, I was thinking of creating a Facebook group so we can look for roommates, ask questions about the transitioning process, and just simple banter (or complaints of our future program lol)
  3. I wanted some peoples opinions on a situation that I am in. I've applied to medical school twice in Canada and have never gotten an interview. I have a cGPA of 3.90, an MCAT score of 515, I am a Canadian citizen and I have recently finished my Bachelor's at McGill University. I have recently been accepted to a British MBBS program at Newcastle University Medicine (Malaysia). I wanted to ask people's opinions on whether it would be more beneficial for me me to get started with medicine in Malaysia now and eventually go through equivalencies and work in Canada or should I find a job or apply for a masters in Canada and re-apply to medicine here? My life is here in Canada, but I also want to be a physician. Staying here will not guarantee that I get a place in a Canadian Medical school later on, but going to Malaysia doesn't guarantee I'll be able to come back either. Any advice? Thank you in advance!
  4. Hello Everyone, Since I've been young I've always dreamed of going to medical school, I've always been at the top of my class, I was IB in high school, pretty strong extra curriculars. I went to university for Biological Sciences, for the first four years of my undergrad I suffered from a chronic and severely debilitating health issue, I was also at the time in an emotionally and physically abusive relationship. Half way through my undergrad I gave up on my dream due poor grades as a result of my circumstances at the time. After my fourth year, I decided to switch into a degree more practical than biological science since medical school was out of the picture- engineering, as I had interned for four years at an oil and gas company (company asked me to return every summer). During the school year I was working at a chiropracter's practice as an office manager/medical assistant. After removing myself from my toxic relationship and getting accommodation for my medical condition, my love of medicine and passion to pursue it returned. I am now 6 years into university, in my second year of engineering, I finished half my biological science degree, completing all med school prerequisites - chem, physics, ochem, bio, and english. My first four years I had a horrible GPA. Once I decided to apply for engineering my GPA went up to a 4.0, and my first year of engineering was a 3.3 (competitive in engineering where most students fail and everything is curved). Unfortunately due to my first few years in bio my cumulative GPA is sitting at a 2.8 which is appalling. I would like to note I never completed my bio degree. Regardless, throughout university I maintained extensive volunteering, and full time jobs (every summer as a student intern with an O&G company and throughout the school year at a clinic). I plan to write my MCATs this following year and hopefully will do well as practice MCATs have indicated a high score. I am 24 years old right now. I am wondering if I have zero chances of applying to medical schools, whether in Canada, the US, or abroad (Caribbean is last resort) or if I should just give up and settle for the Caribbean. If anyone has any recommendations as to what I can do or a plan as to make my resume competitive. I am happy with any medical school that may allow me back into Canada or the US. I'm not sure if I should finish my engineering degree (another 3 years left with my grades having an upward trend) or if I should retake my science courses and apply within the next year. What are my options, all I care about and want is to become a doctor? I truly regret my first few years, I wish I could take them back - this is my dream however, I don't want to give up on it. Any help or advice would be amazing.
  5. Hey folks! So I'm currently a 4th year medical student from the UK. Medicine is a 5 year undergraduate course here so I'm only 21 and haven't yet graduated - 2 more years left though (including this one) woo! Following this, I'd do 2 years of residency in the UK ideally before choosing any specialty. I'm currently looking at my future options, one of which is to work in Canada. The only information I know about the medical boards is through all the official information websites - none of which are THAT helpful. So I was wondering if someone here could help me? When is the best to sit this MCCEE exam? Is it worth it? Shall I take it before my 2 years residency? Is it really difficult to obtain a medical licence in Canada? Any help would me greatly appreciated Thank you in advance xx

  7. Hi guys - here's a blog written by Dr. Jiayi Hu, a plastic surgery resident in Hamilton, about the choice between going the Canadian undergraduate route or applying to Australia/UK medical schools right out of high school. What are your thoughts? http://mdconsultants.ca/should-i-go-to-australia-or-the-uk-for-medical-school-after-high-school/
  8. Hi everyone! So my situation kind of sucks and I don't know what to do. I'm a dual British/Canadian citizen and I just finished my first year of undergrad here in Canada. However, due to personal circumstances I ended up with a terrible GPA (2.6). Last year I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life which is why I chose to go to undergrad. After shadowing dentists and attending the Ontario Dental Association's conference this year I realized that dentistry is what I want to do with my life. Since I have a British citizenship, I wanted to apply to UK dental schools next year so I can start dental school as soon as possible. I plan on practicing in the UK. However, to those familiar with UCAS, I must state all schools I attended and that means that my one bad year will likely hinder my chances of acceptance to various schools. My question is: is it possible that UK schools will not ask for my transcript because I only completed one year? And also, how can I politely defend my bad first year GPA in my personal statement? Also, for those of you wondering, I did complete high school in Ontario and received a very high average (the opposite of university!), which will be submitted to universities. Thanks!
  9. Hi, I would like to start off by introducing myself - I am a Canadian high school student from Calgary, Alberta, and I would like to study medicine in Ireland or in the UK. (I know the deadline for UK med schools was around 2 months ago but I would still like to know if I had a shot) I have pretty good grades (except my English): English: 85 Math: 95 Chemistry: 93 Biology: 92 Physics: 96 Spanish: (I'm sure they don't care about this mark, but just for the sake of it) 98 Law: (again, just for the sake of it) 92 Also, I have good extra-curriculars as well: Approximately 240 hours of volunteering, including 50 hours at a hospital. I also volunteered as a food distributor to the homeless, a hockey referee, summer camp leader, etc. I'm also part of the First Aid team in my school, where we are "on-call" twice a week to assist in any emergencies (we don't have nurses in our school). I'm a Prefect, and was the captain of the school soccer team in Grade 11. I'm primarily interested in TCD, UCD, NUIG, and UCC, I would like to come back to NA for residency. I know that coming back to Canada is close to impossible, but I'm completely fine with going to the US. I have a few questions: 1) Given that I submit a good personal statement, and I obtain some good reference letters, what are my chances at these schools? 2) If I had applied to UK schools, which ones would've accepted me? (I know I would need to take the UKCAT, but I'm just curious). 3) How is student life at those schools (TCD and UCD specifically)? How are Canadian/American students treated? 4) I know that no medical school is considered easy to get through, but is the courseload at these schools intensive? What's the difference between the 5 and 6 year programs? Thank you so much for your patience! I look forward to hearing back from you! Sofabed
