  1. Exactement, surtout pour les collégiens qui ont besoin de 0,X de cote et qui prennent les places des universitaires en étant acceptés dès leur 1re session a cause de leur grosses CRC!! J’espère que ca va faire bouger les LA plus rapidement aussi ...

  3. Exact... ça oblige les gens à rester plus longtemps dans leur programme tremplin $$$. les gens en deuxième année vont compter comme universitaires! Car leurs session d’automne et d’hiver (et d’été) de la première année va être prise en compte.

  4. I've seen a girl who did that once!! She did have a PI supporting her though, she was presenting a poster and it took me a while before I finally understood that she was the patient. I found it pretty cool, especially since she had social anxiety and she described how she overcame that fear... and she was presenting with ease, which was amazing and was a good indicator of the effectiveness of her method. Why not, be wild, do it!!

    Étalon de cote

    Salut ! J'aimerais que quelqu'un m'éclaire sur la manière dont la cru est calculée à Ulaval. J'ai fait plusieurs programmes, donc disons que j'ai fait un bac (complété donc 90 crédits) dans un programme et quelques crédits dans un autre programme, est-ce que je prends mon gpa global pour chaque programme et je regarde la cru associée en proportion avec le nombre de crédit ou c'est calculé différemment ? Merci

  6. Bonjour à tous ! Les nouvelles tables des étalons est disponible à Laval. Nouvelle table : https://www.ulaval.ca/sites/default/files/admission/table-des-etalons.pdf Table de l'an dernier : https://www.ulaval.ca/fileadmin/admission/table-des-etalons.pdf On dirait qu'aucune table a changé en fait.. l'IFG reste la même pour chaque programme ? Dû à la fin de session passé ? Qu'en pensez-vous?

  9. Frl c'est aussi le truc le plus fair que l'université a fait parce que ca avantage le plus de gens: - Certains peuvent re-appliquer en med - Meilleure balance entre la competition des différentes catégories (pcq la competition a toujours été fou pour nous les universitaires tandis que c'était vraiment pas si pire pour les collégiens) - Plus juste pour des candidats universitaires plus vieux parce que maintenant il va pas avoir des gens avec seulement 12 crédits universitaires qui vont se faire prendre avant quelqu'un qui a mis du blood/sweat pendant des années!

  11. Pas Laval, à moins que vous fassiez seulement 11 crédits ou moins à la session d’automne (which is why I am at Sherb right now hahah) (et aussi c’est seulement nouveau à UdeM cette année, la date limite a été devancée en novembre l’année passée à Laval/Sherb)

  12. From what I saw last year, it seemed in-province applicants were sent first, then OOP (who seemed to be maritime or other non-ON/QC/BC residents) and then the rest of OOP I believe alphabetical order was more related to final acceptances/regrets – not 100%, as only some applicants felt there was a pattern here I hope this helps!

  13. Too add, if they do, it would be by their choice in an area they are personally interested in. Not part of the general scope of practice. Even then its still majority in the OR and it would not be OR, followed by clinic or vice versa. Clinic would be in lieu of the OR on those days.

    The tendency to challenge authority if you don't agree with them doesn't make you right. As someone above suggested, consider working on your communication skills and also be humble. Being honest and being able to share your opinion are not weaknesses otherwise. TBH you might have trouble in any specialty, particularly in residency. Medicine and medical training is extremely hierarchical.

    Thank you! I graduated this past year and my job is temporarily remote so I was like eh why not, I have the time to fill out all these applications and my references didn't mind either haha

  17. 1) Research 2) Electives 3) Networking That's essentially it... extracurriculars such as interest groups, advocacy in a certain field, etc, are all good, but have much more variable effects (usually limited) at increasing your chances at matching to a specialty.

    Seulement la cote R du cégep pour les 1ères années de l’université. Vu qu’ils n’ont pas encore complété les crédits à la date limite des demandes d’admission, ils vont être comparés avec les collégiens.

  20. It is possible they look at everything now because the admissions has changed to a more holistic approach. Plus, there has also been a lot of changes this admission cycle so I wouldn't be surprised if they are looking comprehensively even after the interview.

  23. Dalhousie used to have a 503 and 506 threshold for IP and OOP respectively. Now, the lowest possible MCAT score is 492 (IP). From what I've seen in the accepted/waitlist/rejection sticky, the list provided by @dankmeme in the thread linked below is fairly accurate. 503-506 = 6/10 507-510=7/10 511-516=8/10 517-522=9/10 523+=10/10 That said, given the new thresholds, I wouldn't put money on the scoring staying the same.

  26. Being a medical student does not confer any insight or skills that are useful for anything besides residency. We don't have anything useful to offer with respect to startups.

  27. This is based on when interview offers/rejections went out last year: Dalhousie = around Oct 28th McMaster = Jan 8th U of C = Jan 29th Western = Jan 30th Queens = Feb 3rd U of A = Feb 5th That's all the ones I know. You can see that most are clustered around the end of January/early February.

    FM or anything where you can hang a shingle and don't have to work for a hospital/organization, otherwise, unless you're the hospital CEO, there will always be someone above you. That being said, you can never escape your provincial college's regulations and your ministry's billing requirements...

    Asking for mentorship

    My experience has been that mentorship works best when it evolves naturally - my biggest mentors in medical school and residency have been supervisors that I formed a bond with during our clinical experiences together, and those conversations sort of happened naturally in between patients or over coffee or at the end of the day or in supervision meetings, and then kept happening even after we stopped working together. A great way of achieving that is through electives and core rotations (or shadowing if/when that's an option again) - just keeping an eye out for supervisors that seem friendly

  30. Moi j'ai l'intention d'appliquer dans cette catégorie, mais je n'ai pas encore fait le stage (c'est compliqué car j'habite en Abitibi). Reste à voir si je vais réussir à le compléter avant le 15 novembre!

  32. I haven't been active on this forum for a number of years now. Now two years out from family medicine graduation and I can tell you life improves significantly from medical school and residency. Don't think for a second that life slows down unless you want to coast in a part time fashion. People are always interested in money but people never want to talk about it. For those people that are worried about not making enough money as a family doctor I can reassure you with the fact that if you want to work your guts out that you can earn plenty ... I grossed $647k last year and I'll be

  33. FM and IM share many similarities but also have lots of differences. Here is my advice. Think about the worst case scenario in FM (lots of work, lots of colds, lots of prescription refills, bad management at the clinic, lack of help) - can you still wake up everyday and be excited about helping others. If not then maybe FM might not be the right choice. FM is a great career but you have to be comfortable with bread and butter FM. This does not mean you will do bread and butter. There are lots of other opportunities like EM, anesthesia, palliative care, geriatrics, sports medicine etc. But

  34. Ça par contre je ne penses pas qui va être affecté.. ça va être plus le nombre de candidats qui va diminuer (et ce juste pour cette année parce qu'en 2022 ça va remonter à la normale).
