  1. Interested in this, especially comparing FM opps without the +1s, and scope/opportunities of the +1s vs IM Geri and IM Palliative in small cities and GTA
  2. Huge bump, but I think this post is worth revisiting. As seen above Psych was already getting competitive in 2017, there have been many unmatched psych-only gunners since 2019, so be aware that if applying to psych you should consider your plans for backing up vs doing a 5th year, there is lots of anxiety/depression/psychotherapy you can do as a GP, not to mention the 2 vs 5 year residency, similar portability, although having to re-rotate through IM Surg OB etc as a FM resident.

I'd take it as a critique of your whole application on average, and try to improve next cycle (though hopefully you'll get in this one) on multiple fronts.
  5. Nice, all I remember is having 4 homecomings.. I jest I jest
  6. Edited for succinctness: What are good hairstyles/rules for Interview (IV) appearance - Looking good vs "modest", Stylish vs average, Vain vs bland, overdoing it vs drab. Saying "tasteful" is easy, giving useful parameters is better (Colour schemes, what's too far - ie. Monocle)
