    Snowmen reacted to robclem21 in Controversy over new FM Structured LOR Rubric   
    While I don't think this standardized LOR is a good idea by any means, and some of the ideas presented in this form as you have posted it are a bit ridiculous (as others have mentioned),  I fail to see how it is discriminatory... Maybe it is just me, but nowhere on this form do the ideas of sex, race, family status or disability even remotely appear. There is also nothing here about dealing with harassment in medical education.

    Snowmen got a reaction from 1D7 in FMRQ requesting changes to licensing requirements

    Unfortunately, I don't have an english translation to link but the Quebec resident association is basically (accurately) blaming the CMC for the current MCCQE 1/2 debacle and requesting that the CMQ/government of Quebec reconsider the requirements to obtain a license as a practicing physician.

    I'd love to see how well you "manage" a junior resident let alone an R5.

    Snowmen got a reaction from frenchpress in Would you red flag an applicant who has been seen breaking COVID etiquette?   
    If you're a clerk and therefore seeing patients, and you still decide to engage in the behaviors you describe (parties, etc.), you totally should get red flagged. Clear lack of judgement and professionalism.
    When it comes to behaviors that are allowed under current rules (ie: going to a restaurant, seeing a couple of friends, etc.), I think that's fine.

    Snowmen got a reaction from isazap in Stéthoscope   
    Pas besoin d'investir dans un Cardio Master à moins d'être résident en médecine interne et de vouloir aller en cardiologie ou en médecine interne générale mais le Cardio IV vaut la peine. Il y a réellement une différence avec un Classic III qui est un stéthoscope d'évaluation ("nursing") plutôt que diagnostic. Par exemple, beaucoup plus facile d'entendre un souffle subtil ou des petits crépitants avec un Cardio IV plutôt qu'avec un stéthoscope plus "cheap" pour avoir fait la comparaison. En plus, la garantie dure 10 ans donc tu es sûr de pas avoir à en racheter un pour toute le doctorat et la résidence (à moins de le perdre).

    You spoke to an idiot. Call one of their professional LOC specialist or something like that. They usually have some kind of list.

    Snowmen got a reaction from Kitara in Shadowing etiquette?   
    When the actual patient is there, stay quiet. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask them after the patient is gone. If a resident is revising the case, you shouldn't interrupt but once they are done, I believe it's fine to also ask questions about the case.
    The couple times I shadowed as a med student, the attending would usually give some explanations about the case before we'd see the patient so I'd understand what's going on and would then explain his thinking afterwards before asking if I had questions.

    Snowmen got a reaction from Bambi in Elective advice on matching at Montreal   
    Learn french ASAP if you don't already speak it. Then, if you at least back up with FM, it's extremely unlikely that you won't match to a program in Montreal. Also consider the fact that Sherbrooke also has family medicine programs in Longueuil and St-Jean-sur-Richelieu which are Montreal suburbs.

    Snowmen got a reaction from striders02 in 6-year, part-time student: What schools am I eligible for?   
    Except the people who get in with a really low GPA have unicorn ECs like the ones mentioned above, which you definitely don't.
    I don't mean to be rude, but people need to be realistic at some point. You have neither a good GPA or good ECs from what I could gather from this thread. You need to work on improving those instead of scouring the internet to find a loophole to apply.

    Pro-tip: Ask the attending if they want the suture cut too short or too long.
    God-tip: If the attending is cutting your sutures, tell them they cut it too short or too long.
    (Disclaimer: Only do these once you know the attending well enough to know they'll think it's funny, I'm not responsible if you fail your rotation.)
