  1. Can anyone provide me more information into the sleep medicine field?
  2. Hey Heisencat! Needed to ask questions for MCCQE1 :)

  3. @Intrepid86 How long does it take to grade MCCQE1? Match day is March 2 this year and my exam is Feb 7. I'm trying to take it less than a month before match (assuming it takes a month to grade).
  4. Hey, So I know if you do 3 years of FM in the states (ABFM) you can easily get the Canadian FM (CCFP) equivalency, at least if you're a Canadian citizen. Now the other way around, the US won't accept the CCFP and make it equivalent to the ABFM (possibly due to the fact CCFP takes 2 years and ABFM takes 3 years) I am working with a doctor who stated that he trained in Canada for 2 years (got his CCFP) and then worked 1 year in the US and was then able to challenge the ABFM exam and passed. This btw was prob back in the 70's or 80's. My questions for all you brainiacs is this:
  5. Is it pass/fail? If so will they know the exact score you passed with?
  6. Hello, I am a Canadian USMD 3rd yr medical student. Someone on the forum posted this along time ago: "You don't need the MCCQE for Carms. IMGs don't even need it. (They do need the MCCEE and NAC). CMGs don't write it until after they match and you don't need it to start residency*. I would, however, recommend you consider taking it around the same time as your step 2 as the content is highly similar and you will save having to re-study. Obviously there are some Canadian specific things, especially the ethics and Canadian health care system portion, but most of my classmates and
  7. Thank you guys. I've asked some experienced FM docs and you guys are quite right.
  8. Hello, I am a 3rd yr medical student in the US. Plan is to match back to Canada for FM. I was torn between FM and urology for some time but decided that what I liked about urology were the minimally invasive procedures (TURP, vasectomy, circumcisions...etc) as opposed to prostatectomies or cystectomies. Therefore I realized I would be happy being in FM with the ability to add a few minimally invasive procedures. I am in the US so I came across a link that showed the procedures US FM physicians can do with additional training: https://www.aafp.org/dam/AAFP/documents/events/nc/handouts/nc17
  9. Hello, I am a Canadian citizen (Ontario) who is currently at a US medical school. Without disclosing too much I would like a transfer to a Canadian medical school in my 3rd year as clinicals begins. Is it by any chance possible?
  10. Hello Iyin0991,

    Which US med school did you get accepted into? Did you retake your MCAT exam?

    Thanks.......

      Thanks a lot. Is there any scholarship opportunities for Canadians in Meharry? Also, are Canadians considered as International Students?

      Thanks again and good luck with your studies!

      I apologize for the late reply. The school is professional (med,dent phd) meaning they have no undergrad so they are  limited in their resources. But I do know that if you do well on your MCAT like 30+ (old scale) then you have higher likelihood of attaining a scholarship. There are some you can also apply for but as a Canadian you are limited. I hope that helps. I advise calling the financial aid office for more concrete information. Goodluck!

  11. I had posted this in another forum but some help would be awesome. "Hi, I am a Canadian who is currently a first year student in the US. I want to apply for family residency in Canada and I was also interested in doing the +1 in EM. Based off conversations with my Canadian friends who are currently in/graduated medical school as well as this forum, it seem that acquiring the +1 is difficult. I was wondering anyone had information as to if US programs also offer a plus 1 similar to that in Canada and if it would be recognized in Canada?" p.s: I now know that University of Tennessee

  13. Hi all, I am a Canadian citizen. I am currently a first year US medical student who has been weighing his options. I might change my mind but I've always wanted to be a family physician as well as an ER physician. If I am unable to match in Canada during Carms, ill just have to stay in the states and do my residency there. In the US, family medicine is 3 years and I was thinking after that I would do a 1 year fellowship in ER ( 4 years total) or I could do a joint program of 5 years which combines family medicine and emergency medicine. I was wondering if I did the 3 + 1 or the 5 year join
