  1. Just curious if anyone from U of T med might be able to weigh in on how competitive it is to get into the IHPME MSc in System Leadership and Innovation program, and if anyone knows when offers typically go out? My understanding is that a decent portion of their applicant pool comes from med students rather than residents, so I thought maybe someone here would know. I'm a current U of T resident and did apply already to this program, but I never came across any information on those details and missed the info session they had had about the program in the fall. I know it's still a relatively new

I know it's still a relatively new program, so there might not be any hard data on this, but any insights into this would be helpful. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking ab
  3. I did about 18 interviews (applied for 3 programs, with 2 of them applying quite broadly). It was tiring but doable. A lot of how I managed was by pre planning out my ideal schedule ahead of time so I knew right away what time slot to request for any given interview I got offered. I was lucky that by doing this I was able to get a reasonable flow of my travel direction and not really need to double back anywhere out of the way. And I was usually able to spend 2-3 days in a row in the same place and do interviews on separate days in a row in a given city, which meant I could stay around for so
  4. I'd maybe amend that to apply to any programs you would consider / could potentially see yourself doing. If you think you'd absolutely hate life as a family doctor and would maybe even rather leave medicine than go into family, then probably not worth even applying. But if you think you could be happy enough in that field, even if it isn't exactly what you want, then interview, rank it accordingly, and hope for the best.
  5. I think it may be a school by school thing. I know at McMaster unmatched students have the option of doing an "extension to clerkship". It's not a full additional year, just extra electives from May-October. They would then not graduate until October. For Mac there are certain rules around doing this though - I think you need to have applied to something in second round, and need to technically apply for the extension, but that it is generally granted. The school also insists on a certain amount of diversity in the electives, ideally setting you up well for a "backup" specialty for next year.
  6. If anyone wants to talk to someone about Medical Genetics as an option, I was one of the admittedly small number of applicants from the first round. I decided to rank my preferred peds spots above my medical genetics spots so I'm not going into it, but I have some insight into what medical genetics is like as a field (and contacts in medical genetics programs). If you're considering it for the scramble and need to talk to someone about it, I'm happy to give my thoughts. And I wouldn't say it's only a good specialty for people with an interest in pediatrics - obstetrics and also internal (

  8. Any chance anyone has Calgary Peds on January 20th and could trade for January 19th? Alternatively, any chance anyone has January 19th in the morning, and could trade for January 19th in the early afternoon? If so, please reply here or PM me. Thank you. Edit: This has been resolved now. Thanks!
  9. Still looking to trade Calgary January 19th for January 20th. Alternatively I could trade January 19th afternoon for morning. Please PM me if you're able to make this swap!

  11. If there's anyone with a Calgary interview for January 20th (anytime of day) who would be interested in or willing to trade for January 19th (afternoon), I would be eternally grateful.

  14. Sorry, I realize that's not the clearest. I was listing the dates I heard from them. I'm aiming for Calgary - Jan 19th, UBC Jan 21, Ottawa Jan 28, McGill Feb 1,2, or 3. Calgary and Ottawa same day sounds tricky. I guess you'd be trying to take advantage of the time difference?
  15. *Note: these are the dates I heard from the programs, not the date my interview will be. McGill yes on the 11th UBC (Vancouver) yes on the 16th Ottawa yes on the 21st Calgary yes on the 21st Toronto yes on the 21st Queen's yes on the 22nd Memorial yes on the 22nd Western yes on the 22nd
