  1. I am hoping to get some tips from the more financially savvy residents or staff, for those of us that’ll be graduating soon. As a graduating R2, I have been getting few offers for locuming, partnering and salaried positions. The main two that I am considering is a semi-permanent locuming position (6-8mos) vs a salaried hospital position. My main question is how to compare an office based gig (as new grad I’ll probably see 4-5 pts/hr so I’d guess around $130-140/hr income with 25% overhead) vs a hospital salary based position that probably comes to something around $115/hr but comes with health benefits and pension (I am still waiting to get the full package for details on remuneration). I know that there are opportunities for added income in the clinic with the occasional more lucrative chronic disease/annual exam/etc billing codes as well as some private billings, and of course there is the opportunity for incorporation in private practice. I am wondering about the cost of not being able to incorporate as a hospital employee, and if it’d be generally balanced out by the benefits/pension plan that one would get? Thanks guys!

    MCAT & Working Full Time

    Hi everyone! Last summer, I wrote the MCAT and scored 500, so I need to rewrite it for the schools I want to apply to. The thing is, last summer I was working full-time in a lab and really struggled to balance working and studying for the MCAT (cause I had signed up for one of those prep courses). This year, I was offered the same position in the lab and it would be full time. I really want to work for the experience and it strengthens my CV; however, I'm not really sure how to balance the working and studying? Any advice? This summer is my last chance to write the MCAT if I want to be able to apply during my 4th yr undergrad. Is it too risky to work and study knowing how bad I did on the first one. Is it worth giving up the research position to just study for the MCAT all 4 months? Any advice? Thanks!
  3. Hi everyone, I have been seeing a lot of mixed answers to what cGPA a second undergrad would be considered necessary/highly recommended. So according to your opinion, what is the cGPA that work experience/grad school can't really make up for? This is assuming that the applicant would only want to go to medicine, nothing else as a career choice, but is flexible enough to like research/work.
  4. Hey guys! I am just curious, when do most people start getting research experience? I am going into my second year, and I haven't started volunteering in a lab yet, but I'm really interested in doing that, eventually. I already have a bunch of extracurricular activities lined up, so I'm not sure how beneficial it would be for me to get involved during the school year, but I'm worried that I won't be able to get a good lab or hospital research position in the upcoming summer if I don't have prior experience? Thanks so much for your help! * Sorry - I posted this same question under general discussions, before I found this category.
  5. I was just hoping to get some advice about this. I am planning on writing my MCAT next summer (first attempt) and I would like to dedicate my summer (3-4 months) on studying for it and practicing as much as I can. However, it dawns on me that I may not be able to maintain a summer job this way, nor dedicate myself to a volunteer position as a regular volunteer. I have heard about people who have balanced studying and other things before, but I would like to devote as much time as I can in one summer term, rather than having to repeat it because of divided responsibilities. Would you recommend balancing or devoting? Am I overthinking this? I am not looking to fill up my resume just for the sake of it; it is just that I have worked with a great PI for two years now and I would love to continue to work for him in the future - just think this gap would jumble things up.
  6. Around how much time per week did you commit to extracurricular activities/part-time job/volunteering while still staying on top of your classes and maintaining your GPA?
  7. Hi! I'm going into second year, and I already have a few extra-curriculars lined up and a part time job on campus, and together, these activities might already take up about 15 hours per week. Would it be a bad idea to also volunteer in a lab? It's something I haven't done before, so I'm just not exactly sure what kind of weekly time commitment that requires. I'm asking because one of the professors I emailed, simply mentioned that a lot of second year students end up abandoning lab work by the middle of the semester since workload gets heavier. The dilemma is, I'd really like to apply for NSERC or work in a lab or participate in a hospital research program in the summer after second year, but in order to get accepted, should I start volunteering during the school year to gain experience beforehand? I suppose I'm also asking, if it's likely for students without prior research experience to get accepted into those programs? Thanks!

    Calling All Rds!

    I'm finishing up my internship in July & wanted to see how you guys (and gals) find the job market for RDs, where you first worked after finishing etc? Also if any of you are in private practice. I'm waiting on dent at the moment but I was thinking of working as a RD on the side (either a LTC or private practice part time) Also, why isn't there a separate folder/area for Dietitians like for PT, OT etc? ????

  10. Hey guys, I'm a 2nd year looking to apply next cycle to many schools across the country. Definitely the 4 in Ontario (I'm IP), and potentially UBC/Calgary/Alberta. I'm currently figuring out what I'll be doing this summer, and it looks like I'll either get a tech job down in SF for 4 months or get a research scholarship/job at my university. I have no prior research experience and very minimal work experience, and I was wondering which of those two you think would be more beneficial for my application considering my situation. I think I'd be equally excited to pursue either as they're both interesting opportunities, so I'd just like to hear your input. Thanks!
