  1. Thanks for your comment Dr. Otter. I wasn't really aware of how tough a process it is to apply to specialties outside of North America. Thanks for sharing that. This is part of the reason why I wanted to start the dialogue. I've definitely got gaps in my knowledge, so it's cool to hear from you.
  2. You guys both bring up very good points that I completely agree with. My argument isn't that carms doesn't work. I think it works for the majority of people, and lots people in medicine who either matched to something that wasn't their first choice specialty or location end up being able to make the most of it. Human beings can be quite resilient, I have no reservations about that. I hope I don't sound entitled to a particular specialty or otherwise. Rather, the comparison to a conveyor belt was to illustrate the perspective that at least as a current med student, carms is an ever loo
  3. Do any of you guys feel like upon entering med school you're put on this sort of "CaRMs conveyor belt" with an ever looming deadline approaching. Unlike our colleagues outside of North America we kind of only have one shot (save for the 2nd round and reapplying the following year). Not a perfect system but do you guys think there'd ever be any hope of it improving?
  4. Bump! Any anesthesia residents willing to provide information about their respective programs and places they did electives at? Given COVID dashing any hopes of doing OOP electives, it'd be great to gain any insight from those who have gone on before us
  5. Pardon me if this is the wrong place for this post I’m a third year student very interested in pursuing Anesthesiology. If there are any class of 2019 graduates who matched into Anesthesiology, or current residents on this forum please allow me to send you a PM (or send me a PM <3 ). Thanks sincerely
  6. For those that interviewed this cycle, which site did you rank as your first choice? Feel free to share a bit about why! Also, if any current students would like to share about their current site and what they like/dislike about it, that'd be stellar.
  7. Hey there I had the same concern as you! haha, If you check out the communications log between the Admissions Office and yourself, there should be a message with the description "Upcoming Interviews". If you view the message you should see the second last bullet which states " Proof of citizenship is required only for applicants born outside of Canada. Please upload proof of citizenship to the Documents tab by February 19 at 12:00 p.m. PST or bring a hard copy with you to your interview registration. For most applicants, we will not update the received status for proof of citizenship un
  8. "Faculty of Medicine – MD Admissions Requirements Revisions The Committee has reviewed and recommends to Senate for approval the proposed changes to the admission requirements for the Doctor of Medicine Program. In order to enhance diversity within the program and remove barriers to the study of Medicine, Science prerequisites have been removed and will instead be strongly recommended. Removal of the Science pre-requisites will allow applicants from non-traditional backgrounds the opportunity to study Medicine. These students tend to choose primary care, including family care, which is cur
