  1. They take in anyone with a degree. If you have a doctoral (i.e. PhD, MD, DDS or JD) degree, you should enter at the associate level (just above the entry analyst level). The most important part is passing the case interview (very similar to prepping for MMIs in a sense). I think for MBBs, only 1% of applicants get an offer, which says something about the interview and hiring process. Secondary to case interview performance is the prestige/ranking of your university, GPA and any interesting extracurriculars (i.e. student council president, starting a business, raised x amount of money for chari
  2. The answers above are all quite informative and interesting. Barring the cost/benefit aside, there is definitely a demand for MD in the consulting industry. Consulting, in theory, requires quantitative research and analytic skills, and qualitative presentation and networking skills. A MD might not prepare for this as well as a MBA, but having a MD from a Canadian Uni is proof that you are a hard worker, and that is enough for many consulting firms. Although this is mainly a phenomenon limited to the US, many consulting firms actively recruit from MD campuses. In terms of salary, it is deb
  3. Hi! This might be a bit early, but I know that for carms, connections and letters count the most and for some competitive specialties, it would be ideal to have some research experience in the specialty. I come from a non-trad background with publications in an allied health field, and I am wondering if they count for anything during carms? If I do develop an interest in a competitive or semi-competitive field sometime later on, would it still be better to do some research in that specialty? Or would I have "ticked the box" for research?
  4. Wow those are some amazing stats and CV. You probably have the same amount of publications as a fresh PhD graduate... Even though OOP for McGill is insane, I think you have a really realistic shot.
  5. Wow!! Congratulations!!! I have been following you here and there for the past few years, and I am happy that you have made it! It must be a surreal feeling!!
  6. This is incredibly rare. I have heard only of 1 case over the almost 10+ years I have been involved in an allied health field. Dropping out of med to pursue another program won't be seen that negatively, since for most allied health professions, they just don't care. As long as you have the degree and interview well with the head PT or nurse, you should be employable. My next question is, why? I understand that there may be strong personal reasons behind such a decision/thought, but the grass isn't always greener on the other side. If you dislike the clinical work that physicians do, chan
  7. Je crois que c'est mieux de poster dans les forums pour dental students ou les forum pour QC https://forums.premed101.com/forum/66-general-quebec-discussions/ https://forums.premed101.com/forum/7-dental-student-general-discussions/
  8. To begin, I am not the type of person who is in medicine for the $$$, nor do I believe in the privatization of healthcare. I believe that healthcare is a human right, and I truly love the process of interacting and talking with patients, and working with them and the whole team to solve their medical problems. I would choose a career in medicine over business any day. But, as more as a hobby, I love to dabble in investments and stocks, analyzing real estate prices and generally have a bit of an entrepreneurial spirit. I would love to continue this in the future, but I am wondering, does that m
  9. Hey! From what I have seen, it really depends on your personal interests. I am not so sure about pharmacy, but nursing is very different from pharmacy, and both of them are quite different from NP. NP is pretty much the same as practising as a resident, with a focus on managing patients with chronic or non-acute conditions. You round with the MDs, take H&P, enter orders, take calls (with a RN calling you, saying Mr. X's pain medication isn't working for him, what do we do?). Typically, NPs work in Family, Adult care, Pediatrics, Psychiatry (rarer) or Neonatal (rarest). There is a lot
  10. My thoughts exactly! I would definitely travel and hike and explore around, but covid will most likely keep us confined at our place. So why not just get a small head start, while doing other things at home?
  11. NECTARINES Need endoscopes, computed tomographies and radiology in next emergency scenario.
  12. Thank you all for the answers and advice, and especially catlady403! It seems that we all have a different baseline, and the tricky part is to know your own. Most likely, I guess we won't need to prestudy, but I think just for fun, I'll focus a bit on high yield topics like others in the thread mentioned, and see how it goes from there. It obviously won't be my whole summer, but it should cover some basics and get me back in the grind of studying.
  13. Thank you all for the responses! It seems going ham on studying isn't the best option. Also, going technical on the chem and orgo doesn't seem like a good idea either. But, as a non-trad, who has not taken a science course in years, I still think it is going to be useful to prestudy a bit, so I think I will nail down some basic bio and biochem, and see how things go from there. If there is some extra time, I think I'll study a bit of anatomy and physiology. Importantly, from what I have gathered here and in other forums, I think it is important to build up some life skills during the
