  3. I disagree that it is reasonable to globally cap. There is a subset of patients (typically with complex trauma and personality disorders) who it is well known tend to not fully respond to 12-16 sessions of psychotherapy and need more. These patients are often high users of inpatient and emergency settings and present with a great deal of disability. It is not right or okay to prevent these people from accessing the treatments that are most useful to them (medications typically help these folks minimally if at all) simply because some patients could be better treated in short term m

  4. At U of S you start seeing Operative, Perio, and Diagnosis patients in March of 2nd year. You are responsible for booking your patients. Starting in 3rd year you are in the clinic every day, usually seeing 2 patients a day. You are given a daily grade on every patient that you see. You are also given a certain requirement for each class (a number of surfaces that need to be completed for operative etc.) in addition to competencies that are weighted much heavier. Students are put into groups and assigned a patient list and it is up to them to find their patients. If you're looking fo

  5. Gonna try to give you info that Anti-Dentite didn't, but Saskatoon is a decent sized city, around 250K, but then again, its not like Ontario where you are surrounded by populated cities. The closest big city we have is Regina (~3 hrs) and there is not much they offer that Saskatoon doesn't. As he mentioned, getting to/from uni without a car, the only option you have is bus or biking, so consider that when finding a place. There are several housing options offered by the university that are pretty much across the street (College Quarter, Grad House), but otherwise I'd stick to areas around Suth

  6. I've been in the city for around 10 years now. Saskatoon can get pretty cold in the winter but the summers are awesome with plenty to do if you choose to stick around. I don't know where you are from in Ontario but pretty much everywhere in the city is reachable by car in 20 minutes depending on traffic. Transit is okay if you plan on taking it to and from school but I wouldn't rely on it for anything else so you'll definitely want a car. Saskatoon is the youngest city in Canada and has some amazing restaurants and pretty decent nightlife for a city it's size. There are a few people that live

  8. I've been going to the gym twice a day to pass the time. A 30 minute fasted cardio session in the morning and a 60 minute lifting session in the evening. Been getting stronger while losing weight so hopefully I get in September looking like doctor Mike xd

  10. Even though she doesn't speak about medicine per say, I found her message valuable and thought I'd share it with my fellow candidates. It might help some of you cope with rejection and to not give up on your dream even when it seems unattainable.

  12. @Yellowhead Thanks for the perspective. Are there any considerations or options for patients who require more frequent therapy? Wouldn’t more training be a better solution given our current mental health crisis if scope and readiness are concerns? I would prefer that strategies to target misuse instead of a blanket policy that restricts everyone based on an arbitrary cap instead of medical need.

  17. L'un des premiers indices que vous êtes admis en MED VET est l'apparition du dépôt de 300$ dans le centre étudiant (Synchro). L'an passé les premiers ont reçus leur dépôt fin avril- début mai. Un autre indice, est que si vous étiez déjà admis dans un choix inférieur (crochet vert dans synchro) ce choix (Ex: nutrition) retournera à l'étude (rond bleu). Pour ce qui est de la liste d'attente, elle est est sortie vers le 25 mai 2018. En 2017, elle est sortie en même temps que les premières réponses (début mai), ce qui explique que beaucoup de personnes avaient été admis sur la liste vs l'an

    For some of my verifiers who have known I was interested in medicine since the beginning, and are less... formal... I legit start off my email with “it’s that time of the year again, (insert progress from last cycle), update on my life over the past year, changes I’ve made to my application, updated CV, please let me know if you’d still be down to be a verifier” you will definitely reach a few no-replies, so think up of a few back up verifiers, but for the most part I’m sure that those who will be a verified understand that medicine is a hard field to get in to

  20. you want basically family doctors running around with a single year of training? Either that or a general license would mean nothing. I like the concept but I don't know how that would work now without killing people left and right. I don't think that was truly all that safe with one year in the past - I have absolutely no idea how you can become close to being family doctor with only year currently. I don't know how you do it in 2 years to be honest (which is why may other places take longer). Wouldn't surprise me if they are thinking of making it longer in Canada as someone pointed out

  22. I agree with rmorelan. I read over the internist's post on how to reduce the medical students' and residents' stress. 1. I definitely agree with increasing more residency spots for CMGs, one solution is to cut down IMG residency spots and allocate it to CMGs. The CMGs who went unmatched, essentially have an empty MD title with no future job promise. It's possible to match into the subsequent years, but the tragic case of Dr Robert Chu showed us that the CaRMS process is very competitive, and the system is flawed and leaves the unmatched CMGs into a loophole. 2.

  23. from the article med student debit jumped 90K from 70 to 160K in three years (2014-2017)? ahhhhh no it didn't. I like the goal about the article although I find some of the points confusing 1) Sure we can increase spots - probably not a bad idea. But you cannot talk about that without also talking about how the government can control how we have the right number of doctor in each field. We have tried every other way of limiting things - advertising, incentivizing directly, increasing pay.... I don't like restricting things for many of the reasons mentioned but I haven't come up

  24. I think they’re still going through applications and profiles. The 90-credit verification will come in when it needs to, and they’ll continue their process. I don’t think they need that much time to double check everything (probably max a week?). Assuming that, they’ll probably have this week and the next to still do application/profile reviews. There are many factors involved in their decisions, and each year I bet it changes to some extent as well. So, it’s very difficult to predict their decisions. I know the mind likes to wonder about the how and why and what if, but try your best

    Oh heck yes, I can verify this lol. It does feel awkward but I’m used to it at this point :’) . In the end though, all my verifiers are nice and understanding. Each time they cheer more and more haha.

  26. I personally shadowed with the intent of putting in on my application, but ultimately found it to be incredibly valuable. I shadowed several dentists and having each unique experience highlighted different approaches to practicing dentistry and how much you can customize your career. It's also not just about watching dentists do procedures. It's about finding the dentists that are willing to be resources and provide insight to what a career in dentistry is like and what it takes to be a good dentist. If you can find a dentist that is willing to have you shadow and truly engage with you, then y

  28. Oui environ! Je me suis basé sur la coteU qu'ils m'ont donné l'année d'avant donc c'est approximatif! Si tu as des bonnes notes dans un ou l'autre tu vas rentrer. Biochimie c'est plus dur, la matière c'est lourd et ça s'oriente plus vers la chimie, mais t'es notes valent plus. Microbio c'est plus orienté biologie, c'est plus facile (relatif, mais c'est possible d'avoir 4.2+), mais les notes valent moins... Encore là il n'y pas une énorme différence, j'ai vu du monde de biochimie qui ont été refusé en med et d'autres de microbio accepté...

  30. Keep in mind, you'll be attending/living in either place for at least 48 months, so consider the atmosphere of the city, living costs, transportation, etc. I've lived in Saskatoon for the last 4 years, if you have any questions. I assume you're Canadian, are you from SK?

  31. Read the first reply by Kentuckyfriedblaziken in this thread in regards to deciding between US and CAD school. Not sure of your financial situation, but personally, if I could afford it and if not for personal circumstances of mine, I'd go to a U.S. dental school. I discussed with many U.S. dental school graduates and from what they tell me, there's a LOT more clinical exposure as most US schools require you to reach quotas on certain procedures in order for you to graduate and you'll feel ready to practice right after dental school. Sure it's expensive, but if you can start working righ

    Agreed!! I was honestly a bit floored to have news of being on the waitlist as I wasn’t really counting on hearing from McMaster. It really gave me a confidence boost and reminded me of my excitement (such a long wait period from now til May!). Well done everyone, rooting for all of us! It’s a hard place in the world of limbo
