ICU elective at Dalhousie vs U of T (Sunnybrook)

Recommended Posts

I'm currently trying to decide between an ICU elective at Dalhousie (Queen Elizabeth II) or U of T (Sunnbrook) in July. Does anyone have any idea which one might be better?  My understanding is that Dalhousie might be a smaller centre, and would therefore be better for procedures and teaching time, but I'd love to hear what others would have to say about it.

Where would you rank higher for residency? Go to that place. Unless you've got a bunch of electives in one location and you've like to explore the other. You'd probably get great education in both places. I've done CTU at both and had great experiences.

I would go to whichever you feel like you would want to do residency in. Just be aware that Sunnybrook is a high volume center with a lot of acuity but also a lot of fellows and residents. Just because a center deals with high acuity doesn't necessarily mean as a medical student it is a better learning experience.
