  1. Hmm, I let this thread die.... Mother Mother - Get Up : ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCJKCOAckNw
  2. I would think generally, inpatient is easier than outpatient to get access to patients. That said, a lot of outpatient is becoming more consult based and depending on the preceptor it may set up well. Still, inpatients don't have a significant amount of rapport already developed with a certain psychiatrist. With general adult, the turnover is usually a couple weeks and tests your general interview skills for depression and psychosis. If you get caught up in a more specialized program, over a short elective you may not get many new consults if any, or the topic area might be hard to access
  3. I'm glad you've gotten good responses! I don't know if I can add a tonne and very similarly only applied and did electives at Ontario programs. My ranking ended up: 1) Mac - KW 2) Mac 3) Toronto 4) Ottawa 5) Western The KW program came out of no where, as I only applied to it due to geographical location. I liked all the programs on that list each with pros and cons. Given that most of the other programs have been discussed I'll talk about where I ended up. The KW program had a lot of attractive features if you are interested in community psychiatry. It is a small residency pro
  4. Do you have a car? I would recommend going to the 3 Sister Bakeshop on Kilborn Ave (in a tiny little strip mall in a neighbourhood) and get one of the sandwiches... chicken and cranberry was soo good for $5 and pick up a crinkle cookie! It's about as close as anything to RGN but still would take 5 minutes to drive, about 30 minutes to walk. As far as mall fast food options in the area 1) Trainyards on industrial rd. (25 minute walk, 5 minute drive) - 5 Guys burger and fries - Mucho Burrito - Subway - Wendy's/Tim Hortons - Starbucks - McDonald's in the walmart - Local groce

  6. This is a good approach and very similar to the one I took. 3 weeks CL/shared care in Ottawa 2 weeks adult inpatient in London 3 weeks family med in Ottawa 2 weeks CL at McMaster and then I did 2 weeks post deadline of Psych Emerge at Toronto. I did not apply for family, but got all the psych interviews I applied to and matched to where I wanted to be. I do think Psych is getting slightly more competitive. Good lifestyle, good colleagues, mental health awareness is on the up and the ability set up shop/get academic appointments almost everywhere. However, it still isn't terribl
  7. No, 4-6 is more than enough to do well as long as the rest your app is ok and you can have a decent interview.
  8. Ahh, good to know. Not that I'm afraid I'll lose all of medical knowledge, but figured following an emerge rotation, things would be pretty fresh. It would also be nice to have it done earlier, but looks like it'll be next fall.
  9. Hi Everyone, Tried to do a little digging but couldn't find what I was looking for. I know the traditional time to write the Part 2 is in fall of PGY2. I was wondering if people considered writing it outside of that time frame or if you're allowed? I would be tempted to take it in the Spring of PGY1 as I'll just have come off a few general based rotations. I have a feeling I would be more rusty in PGY2 after being back to Psychiatry for 5+ months. Seems like a good idea, but maybe there is something simple I'm missing. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Take a look at this. http://allpsych.com/researchmethods/images/normalcurve.gif
  11. Yah... got in this winter... $55 for 5 GB of data and unlimited canada wide calling... See how long I can keep that going after the contract is up lol.
  12. Generally the mean is set close to 500... and 100 pts in either direction is a standard deviation away from the mean. At least, that is how I understood it.
  13. Not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere, but the last match result statistics are up on their site. Always an interesting read. https://www.carms.ca/en/r-1-match-reports-2014
