  1. Anyone have experience and advice for what types of reference letters to use for family medicine CARMS applications? Should all 3 be from family doctors? and are letters for fourth year electives better than letters from third year core rotations?

    We just started our fourth year and right now and I know I can get a strong letter from a 3rd year fam med preceptor and another strong letter from a 4th year fam med preceptor I did an elective with. 

    I'm on another fam med elective right now and my preceptor says I'm doing well and didn't give much feedback but he seems a bit distant and less personable than others I've worked with so I'd be hesitant to get one from him unless I have no other options. I don't have any more family med electives until right around CARMS applications time but I do have an emerg and peds elective which if I do well on can be potential LOR opportunities. Any advice on this situation?

  5. Are more traditional pre med activities like hospital volunteering, charity work in a third world country, physician shadowing, etc... pretty much required for applying to the US? I had a few interviews in Canada this year but don't have any of those types of activities on my application but I do have a lot of other volunteer work. Should I even bother trying for US schools?
