  1. Does it happen, if at all? Is there any point in ranking uninterviewed programs at all?
  2. Super practical question. I understand that there may be a lot of walking involved on interviews to tour the hospital etc. This may be site dependent but do tours generally involve walking a lot outside? And how much walking are we talking? lol Keeping the snow/rainy weather in mind, is it recommended to wear more practical vs dressier shoes vs flats? Or bring a change of shoes? (assuming they are both equally comfortable options) And ladies, what kind of bags do you take? Crossbody vs tote?

  7. As people are travelling away from home for electives, I thought it might be helpful to practice interviews with folks in the same cities + share resources - even if applying for different specialties. I will list mine here. Feel free to use this post to find others in your area. Please PM me if you are in the following cities and want to practice interviews: - Ottawa: Dec 2-Dec 6 - Toronto: Dec 9-Jan 5 - Hamilton: Jan 6-Jan 17 Thanks!
  8. Is doing 4th year derm electives in a community clinic vs academic teaching hospital site a disadvantage give than program director and residents wont see you much?

  11. I am finding my approach not to be the most effective (googling images and pasting in my notes - it also takes a long time!). I am looking for suggestions on how people study anatomy - reading book and highlighting - apps (my preference) that have the details like articular surfaces, ligaments etc [haven't found this level of detail yet] + allow visualizing in 3D - websites? - anything else? This will be handy for anyone studying medicine so I hope this will be helpful to all! Thanks!!
  12. Looking for thoughts on what would be a good first elective in medical school when you are trying to decide if surgery is your thing and have had zero OR exposure prior to it? Trying to find a good balance b/w getting exposure to surgery but also not too intense that it is a bad experience as a med 1. Apart from this, also curious to hear thoughts on what people's first electives were and any pros or cons to their choice. Thanks!!
  13. Agreed. I also want to offer some encouragement that you sound very capable and reflective to pursue your goals (evident from how you articulated your thoughts and your previous success). If possible, a new university is a great option. It might seem like a fresh start if many ways and become a positive space for you to heal and grow. Good luck with everything! Your strength is admirable to many!
  14. I haven't read much discussion about scholarships for medical school. Has anyone applied for one in the past (school specific, external etc.)? Any experiences or suggestions you have to share?
