    • R3/R4s work under an attending physician, this is key. Also Fellows are fully trained physicians, every single time. where as for NPs its not standardized, I'm sure there are amazing NPs with 30+ years of ICU experience, but there are also those who can go to the US for an online degree.  Independent practice is what they continue to lobby for. Regarding the last point, and to reiterate, R3/R4s are supervised, and we should expect the same for NPs (Properly trained and experienced).
    • This already happens in ICUs. NPs are basically equivalent to fellows, and the ones I have seen have ++ years of ICU experience compared to 3-5 years of clinical experience (and much less in ICU) for fellows. If you're cool with an R3/R4 being inhouse while the staff is at home, you should be cool with a (properly trained and experienced) NP doing the same.
    • Hi everyone! My name is Dr. Wu, resident-physician in ophthalmology. I am looking for motivated undergrad or medical students to work on a review paper on retinitis pigmentosa. This paper will be published in a peer-reviewed journal (IF 6.25), and the publication is almost guaranteed, since we were directly invited by the Editor-in-Chief to write the article.   Our review paper will be on the "Novel Therapeutic Targets and Drug Development in Retinitis Pigmentosa". This will be a fundamental science-oriented paper, focusing on molecular mechanisms and cellular/biochemical processes to justify new gene therapy and stem cell therapy’s targets. Therefore those with a background in basic science research are welcome. Our article will contribute to understanding disease mechanism better, opening novel avenues for targeting photoreceptor degeneration and accelerating the development and characterization of compounds for preclinical studies as a starting point for advanced drug development. Keywords are: retinitis pigmentosa, retinal degeneration,ER stress, photoreceptor cell death, therapeutic target, neuroprotection.    Selection criteria: -Past experience in fundamental/basic science research -Ideally have a PhD or MSc degree (BSc minimally) -Write well in English  -Interest in ophthalmology or medicine in general -Availability between Dec 14th 2022 and Jan 4 2023 to work on the article    If you are interested in this publication opportunity, you can send me an email at wuyangkevin1@hotmail.com with your CV. - Kevin Yang Wu, MD, DMD https://www.linkedin.com/in/kevin-yang-wu-md-dmd-5ab5a2b1/

    • pour moi: pharma (appliqué juste de même): QA pas encore reçu, casper fait depuis un mois mais pas encore traité, ils ont dit que c'est normal vu que la date limite pour le faire est dans longtemps donc ils ont pas encore vérifié med: casper traité bonne chance à vous tous!
    • Ouhh oui j'avais entendu que les réponses de McGill sortaient même avant les entrevues francos. Une offre d'admission à McGill ça te met clairement en confiance pour les entrevues francos. Je nous le souhaite!
    • There are no Step exams, but there is an exam called the MCCQE. It is not technically a requirement to get into residency as a CMG, however you will need to do it at some point regardless, and most people complete it prior to residency.
    • Hello, I have an interest in doing re-entry training in internal medicine. I would greatly appreciate if anyone with re-entry experience would be open to PM'ing to connect/discuss or sharing their below.  I am familiar with the website describing the process (https://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/hhrsd/physicians/reentry.aspx) and have called to get further details, but it would be very helpful to hear from a physician who has been through the process. I am a family physician who's primarily doing office and hospitalist work currently. 
    • Besides FMproc, is there another test I need to take? Like in US, there is step 1,2, etc... Do I need to take the canadian board exams before applying? If so, what are they called?
    • Thank you. This is great advice.   If not Toronto, would I have an issue at matching anywhere in Ontario FM? Is it super competitive to match?  
    • Est-ce qu'il y a une différence entre un quartille 3 fait à l'automne et un quartile 4 fait en hiver puisque c'est surtout des universitaires à l'automne et des collégiens à l'hiver?
