    Respirology

    There is so little on online forums relating to respirology in Canada that I thought I should post my opinion here, which goes beyond the questions asked. I realize the thread is years old, but maybe someone will find this useful. I am a respirology fellow (R5), and will be pursuing a mixed practice of respirology and general internal medicine. Almost everything posted on forums relates to Pulmonary-Critical Care, which is a combined fellowship offered in the US, and most American pulmonologists (usually known as respirologists here) are dual-trained. The combined fellowship was standard in Ca

  4. Hello, I've been admitted to a couple of schools but will be attending Schulich this fall. That's great and all, but I feel like I'm missing out on a big part of life: dating. I've never had a girlfriend, never held hands or kissed a girl, and am obviously a virgin. I don't think I'm weird around girls, I would actually consider myself to be a socially competent individual. I've just never gotten around to being with a girl. I feel too awkward approaching a stranger, and unfortunately most of my social circle consists of males. Will things be different in medical school? I rea

  5. I think all schools including Quebec are now pass/fail. Sherbrooke was the last one to change I think a year or two back.

    Endocrinology?

    The Endo job market will always be good, for the sole reason that you can set up a purely outpatient practice (and not be associated with a hospital, which is great because it gets you out of doing call). It would NOT be wise to do an internal medicine residency to solely match to endo later. Not to say that it is or isn't uber competitive, but what if you don't match to endo... and you don't like GIM then you are totally screwed (not that you won't be a doctor but you'll be stuck in a specialty you don't enjoy), because in the MSM match there are no re-entry's or transfers or do overs (i

  7. How doable is it to just open up a clinic in a small/medium sized city as a urologist and just do clinic work until you can get OR time locally?

  9. I will bet that only about ~1200 applicants actually meet the GPA/MCAT cut-off, possibly even lower. Here's my reasoning: Queen's received 5089 applications last year, and only about 2000 applicants met the GPA and MCAT cut-offs. 40% of applicants meet cut-offs Ottawa received 4,269 applications last year, and only 2,241 applicants met the GPA Cut-off. 53% of applicants meet cut-offs Western received 2156 applications last year. If we assume Ottawa's less forgiving math (53%) we'll have 1142 applicants make the cut-offs. If we assume Queen's more forgiving math (40%) we'll

  15. How old is that guy? I feel like that's a super creepy/weird thing to say to a girl and wouldn't work today. The guy also must have been white.

  17. Let nature take its course. Develop friendships in Med school and beyond and there is more than one girl out there for you. You really never know where a friendship will lead to, if anywhere. You can, however, improve your chances by working to make things happen. I know one fellow who saw a girl walking in the opposite direction, in a building, she was talking to another person. He realized the strong attraction, that he likely would never see her again in his lifetime. He stopped in his tracks, turned around, approached the girls and said, “Excuse me, you have touched my heart, my soul, my b

  19. Not gonna lie, I don't think your prospects will change in med school unless you become more confident around girls. I talk to many girls and it is all about having confidence. Think of them as your male friends and you will be fine.
