  1. They have, and now it has moved to the 2022s CaRMS year. They say it is evidence based to used standardized LORs, as to what the evidence is I haven’t searched for, Sure someone could do a lit review for it hah. So I suppose it is just a delayed issue now, guess we will see how next year pans out.
  2. Yeh they def won’t. There will be interview it’ll either be in person or probably like last year online version. But the Casper youve written no way, that’ll just determine who gets interviews like the other parts of the app.
  3. does this work for surgical specialties as well?
  4. You know you'd think so, but after assessing videos of applicants I've realized, surprisingly, you can garner a decent amount of information about applicants in how they answer and their non-verbal cues. Yes it's different than MMI, but it works consistently across applicants if they all do it IMO. As for actual back and forth interview, I've done both video and phone job interviews for professional work and I think personality can come out quite well, but that's just my experience. Good luck to y'all!
  5. Speaking of the lottery, this opinion article just came out in Medical Teacher https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/0142159X.2020.1832206.
  6. I don't think it is necessary (for fellowship reasons only), many non-USMLE based fellowships over there, can do Canadian ones, or go to another country like UK/Australia, etc. It won't be the end of the world, and not everyone needs ALL the doors to be open. Not everyone does well on standardized tests, even if they have studied for it, so no need to freak out those people.
  7. With the way Queen's works, it's probably going to be closer to the latter, the GPA/MCAT cut off to get 2000 works pretty well for them, now they can further cut down and then less apps to look at. But suppose we will see once things start moving along this cycle.
  8. Probably same reason as surgeons, hospital resource, current nephros don’t let new ones in as yeah they make tons of $$$, etc.
  9. I would put most surgical specialities at 7 as a ton of fellowships are two years. Sure there are some that are one, but most Canadian fellowships are 2.
  10. You go for it, and if your mind changes in clerkship to something less competitive then you're set. Otherwise back up and make connections. If you don't try then you definitely won't match to that speciality. This is a common feeling you're having, and has been addressed many times. It ultimately is up to what type of risk you want to expose yourself too.
  11. Probably one of the silliest things I’ve heard. Everyone has their story, 50% of those may very well be privileged people (like my class), it’s hilarious how unrelatable most med students are to the common Canadian. You may not agree with off my chest, but I’ll be damned before someone calls someone else out after multiple tries to medicine. Also your point makes 0 sense, they are not at all related. Use actually well formed arguments and not personal attacks thanks.
