  1. To everyone who has commented, Thank you so much for offering me empathy and support. You are all lovely individuals who show me how lucky we will be to have excellent doctors like yourselves. I hope for the best, and I thank you all for keeping that hope alive.

  2. Is the billing different because you are 1 hour away?

  3. I am a family doc in BC, one year out of residency, working about 1 hour from Vancouver. I do office FM, residential care, OAT and youth clinic sessionals (no hospital, no evenings and about 3-4 weekend hours every 5 weeks at nursing home "on call") and will make well over 300k this year post overhead but before taxes and I am still learning the ropes about maximizing my billings etc.. I work in my primary office on average 3.5 days week and will see about 30 patients per full day. You can make a lot more money in BC if you are willing to work outside of Vancouver.

  4. Yea Saudis are a whole different ball game. They are paid by their own scholarships and sponsors and the program actually makes good coin from training them (in addition to FREE LABOUR). IMG spots on CaRMS are the exact same spots at could be going to CMGs. So when CMGs are going unmatched, it's puzzling why spots are open to IMGs.

  5. This is a one off anecdote, a former fellow lab student had a similar issue two years ago. An explaination letter was sent to uoft and a phone call was made and while an incredibly stressful experience, that individual did get an interview that cycle (though no acceptance). While I can't say it will or won't work out. Know that there is hope.

  8. Hope this works out for you. I have a feeling that a medical school of all schools will show empathy for you as well.

  9. Ha parfait merci, j'aurais pensé que ça aurait été un peu plus bas pour un 3.80, mais c'est positif que ce soit plus haut Et oui, je suis d'accord qu'une GPA de 4.2 à 4.3 est un objectif très réaliste pour quelqu'un qui est à son affaire . Moi j'ai 4,215 en ce moment (pour 30 crédits), et ce qui m'a baissé c'est un A pour le cours de labo de chimie (mes démos corrigeaient sévèrement) et un A en microbiologie (aussi à cause des mini-tests avant les labos et des rapports de laboratoires). Et oui j'étais quand même à mon affaire, mais je ne passais pas tout mon temps à étudier non plus et je n'a

  10. UBC Enthusiast, The fact you considered my feelings is truly touching and your words are a massive comfort to me. Despite the unfortunate nature of this circumstance, I cannot bring myself to be mad or disappointed with my professor. His intentions were still to help despite his own personal challenges. In a single sentence, you've reminded the profound impact empathy can have on another. Thank you so much. I will try to remember lessons you learn from hardship mean more than getting into medschool.

  11. The first post in this thread is not my personal experience over the last 2 years of practice. My main place of work is a large city in Alberta but I've done everything except obstetrics. In order of best paid to least: -Emergency/Urgent care on a weekend, evening or statutory holiday -Efficient LTC, ~10 patients/hr (although the added billing crap you have to do afterhours ruins the experience) -Busy walk in clinic -ARP hospitalist, ARP LTC, ARP anything (it's a set hourly rate). Anecdotally, hospitalists often "bill" for more hours then they normally work. -Efficient
