  2. Manitoba has cancelled IMG/CSA electives until further notice.
  3. What about CSA's? Any benefit to doing observerships? Or just wait for electives.
  4. First of all, the Netherlands is not a Scandinavian country. I'll try and answer your questions to the best of my knowledge for Finnish med schools. 1. You would need a visa unless you have an EU citizenship. 2. Most universities are free for anyone to attend, but some of the universities are starting to charge tuition for non EU students. 3. Honestly, I have no idea. 4. Unless you speak fluent Finnish or Swedish, there isn't any way to practice as a doctor in Finland. 5.

For these programs the schools want an equivalent to a 2.1 degree, I'm still trying to determine what it is, but it is likely up to each specific school to decide. If you have this equivalent, then you are ranked based on your GAMSAT score to see if you get in. When applying through CAO, all they look at is your total GAMSAT score, so ECs / GPA (once your degree is considered equivalent to a 2.1) are not considered at all. The tuition is basica
  8. Does anyone know if Mac is still giving graduate applicants the little boost? Master's used to get 0.01 and PhD got 0.04. They seem to have removed it from their website now.
  9. Which tends to be more difficult: coming back to Canada for residency after doing med school in Ireland/UK or coming back as a fully trained doctor after completing your residency in Ireland/Uk?
