  1. You sure? Have you even tried a chocolate-covered Ativan?

  6. Some programs have a link to their last years requirements if you need
  7. Not sure where it's needed the most but we may end up going to northern BC or Red Deer or more rural/remote sites if we want to become MOH. Would love to see where this field is heading in the next decade or so but limited job prospects are certainly concerning heading into carms.
  8. Unfortunately, it's quite saturated! Especially by the time we finish residency, there will already be plenty of PHPM graduates who will be looking to fill those spots. Know a few who have had to adjust their career paths upon graduating and others who got MOH positions but across the country. It's a little concerning so hopefully things look brighter soon.
  9. Two out of three of those is what I'd like so maybe I should take a chance with this strategy
  10. Thoughts on this with respect to 3 non-competitive specialties? Main interest is in addictions medicine (clinical and research) but not sure whether to do it through family med, psychiatry or even PHPM. Doing longitudinal FM clerkship + 2 weeks FM, 6 weeks electives for each of the others.
  11. Sorry, I didn't mean it that way. I meant that nutrition evidence itself has shifted in so many directions that there is always research for and against everything else. Dietitians are the obvious experts in the field, but I'm worried that the evidence is not as clear as other fields where individual physiology, compliance to the diet, comorbidities and personal preference don't allow for clear conclusive evidence towards one dietary plan vs another. I'm very glad that RDs aren't going purely off the food guide. My experiences with RDs have been that they say they are taught to champion
  12. We don't consider the biodiversity argument in nutrition that we're all different genetically and metabolically. Our socioeconomic factors and general lifestyles contribute to health too. Everyone should be trial-and-erroring different diets to see what makes them (1) feel better, (2) reach appropriate health outcomes and (3) able to sustain this approach for life. From an Indian family, there is too much diabetes and HTN but they have no intention of changing their diets. Having adopted keto, my personal weight goals have been achieved and nearly all lab values have improved (particularly A1c
  13. Worked on some tele-ophthalmology projects and there was even a TED talk on an smart phone add-on that was used for ophthalmic assessments: https://www.ted.com/talks/andrew_bastawrous_get_your_next_eye_exam_on_a_smartphone
  14. I'm aiming for PHPM and/or FM right now. I'll already have 10 months of rural clerkship in 3rd year so I thought that will help with FM a lot. I'll also be doing 2 weeks of PHPM this summer. My elective plans: 3 electives in PHPM 1 elective in FM (but special populations like inner city or prison) 1 elective for ID or Peds ID Maybe 1 in occupational medicine I'm more concerned with how people have managed to work through the portal or strategies to help in general when having so many electives in a row. Since I'm in Alberta, my plan was to do 1 in BC, 1 in AB,
