  1. so happy for you!!! last year's wait list situation must have been super hard for you but look at you now!!! Have fun at Mac- your persistence has paid off
  2. I was accepted to my 3rd choice program. I was able to move back to my home town. I was so glad it worked out that way for me retrospectively. Try not to let this decision overshadow your accomplishment to match to your home school. Having family and friends around for support are golden. You never know where life will take you and residency on balance is really a short period of time in your medical career. You will have so much flexibility to move on to where you want to practice later and that is really exciting !! Congratulations on achieving your MD. Welcome to the Club !!!
  3. I just asked the admin- they said yes you can join without it and just do your best to answer the screening questions so they know this is a legit request its also open to med students
  4. there on residents on there- you can message them and ask if you can send it along when you get it ? I forgot to mention it is the Physician financial independence (Canada) group- I forgot the Canada part , and also take a look at looniedoctor.ca for some additional information
  5. if you are on FB, I suggest joining this group : physician financial independence group you will get some valuable info in this group and this question has been asked on there
  6. Ontario: most psychologists are billing $150-200 per hour. I do not know the rules in PEI for delegating psychotherapy to others. I do know that if you are in Ontario you can get a license for PEI to possibly providing virtual care to those in PEI. Psychotherapy could be a very good thing for PEI residents given the high demand for child and adolescent and adult psychiatry with ++ wait lists. If you have an interest in GP psychotherapy there may be a role for this. Anything can be modified by a government so I don't know what is doable now is sustainable in the future regarding virtual care f
  7. are you under a week from being done what are your plans? this is terrific!!!
  8. As someone who it took 5 tries to get in to Mac (year 1 of trying- no interview, year 2-4 interviewed but no offer and not waitlisted, year 5 interviewed and offered admission) I offer this advice: Use this year to reflect on what ways you feel you can improve your application and prepare for your guaranteed interview next year. Use this year to your advantage, whatever that may be for you. This is huge to be able to not worry about whether you would be granted an interview or not. Every year I had applied I didn't know if I would receive an interview and I feel very grateful for the opp
  9. with the same kind of trajectory to practice here in Ontario!! and I am sure both are assets to the medical communities they serve. I am glad it has worked out for your friend
  10. we might know the same person, is this person now working in Hamilton?
  11. look at CME events in locations like Cape Cod, east coast, west coast and plan a vacation around these venues so it can be a business expense. You can still get a piece of summer vacation while getting CME. This is what I have done and it sure helps to make something out of the summer. I went to Cape Cod last summer for a course and I felt so rejuvenated. I would have done it again this summer and was booked for it but due to Covid my family and I are not going. Awesome news that you are almost done this post grad journey.
  12. that's a tough one....mac med grad and western trained resident here (grew up in London and not biased at all LOL ) ........welcome to the club........where ever you end up going it will be worth it.......
  13. I hope you can get off the wait list at Western, can you wait until the 11th hour on Tuesday?
  14. I was looking at the chart last night and figured you would be getting a notification this week Congratulations
  15. I am the shrink who was a high school teacher before medicine Love your post!!!
  16. Wonderful to hear!!! Long journey for you. Way to go !! I have wondered how its been going for you down there and even more so since COVID hit. We are doing a lot of telemedicine here in Ontario. I am sure you have heard about the hospital/clinic situations. Next week the government has started to open up the elective surgeries and some clinics will start to see how they can open but most important will be PPE and patient/staff safety.
  17. hi Summergirl25, I read your post. What resonated for me was your feeling that Dal was more your vibe....I think listening to your gut is important. There are prons/cons to both places as you mentioned. At the end of the day you want to feel like you made the best decision for you and where you can really picture yourself going and why. There for sure will be opportunities to even come back to Ontario for electives, summer vacations during med school etc. I don't think going to a school for medicine out of province would disadvantage you in any way when it comes to Carms. I would say to g
