  2. J'ai envoyé un courriel et comme sur leur site internet ils m'ont dit que c'est seulement les moyennes cumulatives de chaque programme fréquentées qui sont traitées et ce pour toutes les universités qui n'ont pas le même système de notation. Les A ne deviennent pas des A+. Ils ne regardent pas un cours à la fois. Ensuite par téléphone, la dame m'a expliquée qu'ils comparent un les échelles littérales entre les universités ensuite ils appliquent l'indice de force du programme qu'ils jugent le plus équivalent. Ça demeure nébuleux mais un peu plus clair.

  3. Non, UdeM ne verra jamais la valeur numérique de tes notes. Ils ont un système de conversion, qui est tout aussi nébuleux que leur processus d'admission.

  6. C'est certain qu'il y a un certain décalage entre cégépien et universitaire, mais en médecine, il y a des étudiants de tous les âges, alors tu trouveras certainement des gens avec qui partager le pré-clinique 8 marchés du travail, 8 PhD, donc déjà en partant, ça en fait plusieurs qui ont un certain âge. Et ça, c'est sans compter les universitaires qui ont plus d'un bac à leur actif. Tu peux faire les cours l'été, il n'y a pas de problème.

  7. Selon un post fb de la faculté de med de l'an passé Fidèles à nos habitudes, voici quelques statistiques en lien avec l’admission 2018 : 2523 demandes d’admission reçues (2327 en 2017). Cote minimale requise afin d’être convoqué aux MEM : • Collégiens : 34,935 • Universitaires : 32,852 Près de 1 000 candidats étaient présents aux MEM pour l’Université Laval. Voici le détail par contingents et catégories particulières : • 625 Collégiens (pour environ 125 places) • 311 Universitaires (pour environ 80 places) • 16 Marché du travail • 11 PhD ou en voie d

  8. Not to be rude, but why ask this? You have a perfect GPA in last 2 years and a high MCAT that meets all schools' cut-offs.. You have the classic pre-med ECs: varsity team, research, undergrad clubs, awards- so you are all set.

  9. Hello, I was just wondering whether anyone could give me some more information regarding the salaries of clinician-scientists compared to their physician-only counterparts? I'm specifically referring to clinician-scientists in big academic institutions who have, for example, 70% protected research time? Do clinician-scientists receive a salary + bill the government for the patients they see in clinic? Thanks!

  10. I think that's important to note and does change the possibilities. I know of other people who have had the exact experience wrt to derm vs ophtho as you and matched into ophtho in QC. Obviously, getting research, etc. done would really be helpful and making sure you secure electives. I think Neuro would be a better complement to ophtho vs derm, however. I'm not sure if you'd have a competitive application in either outside QC, but at the end of the day where you do your residency doesn't matter that much.

    GPA de Mcgill

    L’année passé, L’udem avait calculé à un de mes amis en bio pour un 3.809/4.3 -----> 33.325 incluant le Bonus de 0.5. Donc, pour 3.809/4.3 = 32.825 en Bio à l’udem en 2018 Dans ton cas, soit ils ont converti ton 3.78/4 sur 4.3 (car avec 3.78 tu as obtenu 33. 082) ou bien l’IFG de bio a augmenté et ils n’ont pas converti ton 3.78/4

    pharmD vs Nut

    I'll comment on dietetics: Pros: - it's super interesting and lots of practice settings to choose from (industry, food service, different areas of clinical, community, public health, private practice, etc.). Everyone has an opinion on nutrition, and there are lots of polarizing opinions out there- you get to be in the middle of it! - Very holistic approach to pt care- you really get to have a good understanding of psychology and what drives behaviour change because knowledge dissemination is the easy part, behaviour change and working around personal barriers is the real challen

    Dermatology -> Ophthalmology

    Well, I disagree with ZBL. You don’t know where lighting will strike. I applied to 3 fields, 2 of which were highly competitive. I knew that I would be personally and professionally fulfilled in all of the 3, so, in my mind, although I had to rank my choices, they were all equal. I was a gunner in one of the specialties which did not select me, and I was the least qualified of all Interviewees in the field that selected me, mainly because of my soft skills which led them to conclude I would be s good fit. Had I put all my eggs in one basket where I was a gunner, I likely would not have matched

  15. Ophthalmology and Dermatology are quite different, so applying to both may harm your application to both. If you are interested in Ophthalmology, i would suggest sticking to just Ophthalmology and try to distant yourself from Dermatology going forth. Like ZBL suggested, do some electives in Neurology or back-up with Family Medicine.

  16. I think you already know what adcoms will think. Splitting your application between derm and ophtho is risky to say the least, especially if you will have electives in both and research in both. If you’re set on ophtho, go all out: do the research, do the 8 weeks electives. But do the remaining electives in something else to distance yourself from derm. Something like ENT to show your surgical commitment, rheum for the interesting inflammatory stuff, ID etc that generally relate to ophtho. Elective caps may be for the better, but unfortunately splitting your application between 2 of the

  18. So i thought @2019goals was being fairly rude. I thought it was an honest question.. But at every turn you reveal a lie. Dude it is an anonymous forum. In your regrets for interviews you wrote that you had a 516 MCAT... why would you write that there. And now you say it was a 510? I don't have any advice for you because I have no idea what are your actual qualifications are. I hope your are more honest on your applications then you are on here. All I can say is you should maybe work a bit more on your character before applying to medicine.

  19. Hi guys, Sorry to jump in so late, I don't know if I posted this before or now, but I GOT AN INVITE TOO! I think the stats might help others who are waiting or wondering what happened, so here's me: Bachelor of sciences from UBC, already graduated. My overall gpa is 84 and my first year core average is 82. My last 30 credits is 86.1. I did tons of volunteer work since I was aiming for medschool as well, but that doesn't factor in much for the interview invites. They told me it's solely based on gpa. The email that they sent, says if we don't get your reply b

  22. I would strongly advise against the plan. Teaching an undergrad course is a lot of time and responsibility (class & office hours + preparation incl exams, detailed schedule, etc..). I don't see how one could actually teach and go to medical school, given the schedule demands of both. Besides, PhD or prior teaching experience is usually the norm. That being said, giving a few lectures in an upper year course/seminar or running a seminar style course with a smaller group of students might be feasible and could be a great experience. I'm not sure acting as a TA while in medical

  23. Tu peux faire tes cours compensateurs pendant le processus il faut juste que tu les aies terminé à la fin de l’été . Pour l’âge, c’est drôle car moi je me vois comme si j’avais l’âge de tous les autres . Mais je me fais appeler madame alors clairement la différence d’âge est là, particulièrement au cégep où j’ai fait un cours de physique. Ceci dit je me rends compte que j’ai toujours plusieurs « jeunes » autour de moi pendant les cours et je pense qu’ils apprécient ma présence et ma vision de la vie et de l’école .

    Externat Sherbrooke :)

    Tu vas faire environ la moitié de ton externat à Sherbrooke. Moi et la plupart de mes collègues je crois ont gardé leur appart, c'est beaucoup moins de trouble. Tu peut faire plusieurs stages obligatoires/sélectifs à Longueuil et à St-Hyacinthe et pédiatrie à St-Jean sur Richelieu, ainsi que t'es trois stages électifs si tu veux. Oublie pas que c'est une lotterie par contre, la majorité de ton externat me semble peu probable.

  25. They were out of 17 in previous years, and scores were broken down as follows (back in 2017 when they actually broke down scores at in-person meetings, which they no longer do): 4 points each for volunteerism, work experience, diversity of experience, and leadership. The final 1 point was for your score in the awards section. Hard to say how they calculate the 17 now.

  26. I'm kind of confused what it is that you're asking as well... Generally, studentships for summer research work and the NSERC USRA are virtually the same thing (i.e. in Alberta we have an Alberta Innovates Summer Studentship). Most often, students apply for all the studentships they can, and then accept the one that pays the best if they're offered multiple. In some cases, they may even allow you to 'top-up' your earnings and collect both (up to a certain dollar value). If you're awarded more than one, even if you are only able to accept one, you can (and should) list both on your CV. If

    This. I know Toronto really well, and being at Queen's now, I would definitely say it is easier to get involved in research at Queen's. Toronto has more diverse research going on (e.g. if you are only interested in doing basic science research on Sprague-Dawley rat models to look at the role D gene plays in X disease, then you're probably not going to find that at a less research-intensive university compared to Toronto but you're also probably going to be more satisfied in a PhD or MD/PhD program than a MD program alone) but if you want to get involved in research for the experience, the

  29. It's my understanding that they're the same thing. Are you asking how to put them in your CV (in which case you could state the amounts even if the studentship doesn't explicitly say it online) or which is more competitive for something?

    Just to follow up on match rates, the data is very difficult to interpret and not straightforward. Essentially all the schools have a high match rate and there is variation from year to year. Its very difficult to interpret the match rate data since some schools will strongly encourage backing up to protect their match rates, so its hard to get a sense as an outsider how to compare the rates between schools (some schools may not suggest backing up as much as others, hard to know how many people matched to their top choices in terms of specialty and location). Also some people prefer to go unma

  33. From looking at what you wrote above, either your ECs were not written in the best way possible on your ABS or the number was not enough. Other possibilities of areas to improve are your U of T essays, references and CASPer. Your academics and mcat are not holding you back anywhere. On paper, you look pretty good so I imagine the issue may be in how you present yourself. Good luck!

  34. Salut ! Après m'être informée auprès de l'université, le fait de retourner à l'école après avoir travaillé ne t'empêche pas d'être dans le contingent marché du travail. Ils veulent que tu aies travaillé au moins 2 ans. C'est mon cas. J'ai travaillé près de 10 ans ensuite retour aux études et j'ai appliqué dans ce contingent cette année. Par contre l'admissibilité change beaucoup donc tu peux peut etre revalider pour etre sur.

  35. Voici les réponses à quelques unes de tes questions : La NA permet de discriminer qui entre ou non dans le contingent marché du travail et sera convoqué aux entrevues dans ce contingent; des gens qui ont 35 sont parfois refusés, autant que des gens qui ont une cote insuffisante. Tu pourras voir sur le site des admissions les cut-offs, qui varient entre 29,5 et 31, qui détermine le cut-off des lettres qui seront lues. À titre indicatif, la moyenne des convoqués aux entrevues était de 31,2 l'an passé. C'est donc ta capacité à faire ressortir ta valeur comme candidat potentiel qui sera

  36. Ca se peut qu'en ne travaillant qu'à une seule clinique tu n'aies pas du 5j/semaine, mais la majorité des nouveaux gradués décident de pratiquer dans 2 voir même 3 cliniques en commençant. Cela ne peut que t'apporter plus d'expérience en plus de te donner la possibilité de travailler temps plein si c'est ce que tu désires!

    The best ones are whatever feels best on you. You have to try them on. I would also make sure you're buying your local rep, not just the loupes. The level of support you receive and how friendly/accommodating the service people are is important. I have two pairs of ExamVisions, the 3.5x Keplers I use now are great. I use Lumadent lights/batteries.

  40. everyone has different approaches to the MMI. personal reflection of qualities and experiences is the best bet (other than general knowledge about PT competencies and basic issues related to the profession). U of A is the known physio school in canada for emphasis on MSK/orthopaedics. Dr. Magee, (the author of the golden standard MSK text that every medical profession across canada uses) is a recently retired professor of the program. His philosophies of teaching are still present and idealized, as his graduate students are now our professors . hope this helped.

  45. I applied to some UK schools for PT last year, one of them being Oxford Brookes. Most of the UK interviews I had were pretty relaxed. They asked me things based on NHS core competencies (ie describing a situation in which I demonstrated compassion), general background info about myself, why I want to become a physio, what qualities I think are important for being a good physio, what I like about their specific school/faculty, and asked about my work/volunteer experiences from my personal statement... OBU also sent me a physio-related video ahead of time and asked a couple questions about
