Is medical school environment in Canada competitive? or does it depend on school?

Recommended Posts

Schools that still use(d) grades have a competitive environment. In my time I believe the only schools that use grades instead of P/F were Quebec schools. I would say a hypercompetitive environment is rare in P/F schools, though a few people here and there may have some issues in clerkship.

I can only speak for UAlberta as I've just started it. We have a pass/fail curriculum so I think that definitely takes the edge off. Also it has been stated to us quite a few times during the orientation week that the program is no longer meant to stratify us as premed programs do, so again I am expecting far less competitiveness and quite a bit more collegiality than in undergrad. Cannot speak for any other schools but would be interested in hearing what they're like.
