  1. So, I'm not a doctor, but I'm a health professional who's worked in hospitals for a few years and I'm starting med school in the fall. Here's what I think: I think this is something you can gain from observerships and during your clerkship. The main idea is that each speciality can have really cool and exciting cases, but that they only come once in a while. For example, ER docs can sometimes have major trauma cases come through, but often they see people who need med refills, have a cold/cough and need a doctor's note or elderly patients who are displaying signs of dementia secondary to
  2. Please update us with what you find out!
  3. Upon further inspection, I think that the NTP program wasn't producing the level of diversity they wanted. From the website: "This change recognizes the fact that applicants with a variety of educational, career, and life experiences who were previously restricted to the 2-5 Quebec NTP seats, have profiles that are very competitive for admission in the larger Quebec University cohort, and go on to be successful in our program." This change in addition to the new Rural and Small Populations Pathway (RSPP) is an interesting indication of the direction that McGill is moving towards
  4. Oh they all look nice! But fingers crossed for the olive green!
  5. It is my understanding that McGill DOES accept Athabasca courses, as long as they have the required lab component. Are you in Montreal? Have you considered doing it at a CEGEP or in the fall as a non-degree student at one of the universities?
  6. Wow. As someone who got into the NTP this year (and isn't required to do the qualifying year), this is quite a lot to process. I think it makes a lot of sense to eliminate the pre-req expiration, but now McGill is no longer available to people who completed their degree on a part-time basis (short of a few semesters here or there). I really wonder what motivated this. Perhaps they looked at successful NTP students and made these changes based on who they saw primarily applying?
  7. Hey, so a few things: 1) I'm sorry you didn't get in. This process sucks and there's no silver lining. Yes, it's an excellent indicator that you received so many interviews and it's a huge accomplishment that you successfully completed that many interviews! But interviews are not an acceptance so I want to validate what you're feeling and let you know that it's ok to feel sad, mad, depressed, frustrated, like things are unfair, etc. and you don't neeeedddddd to take the approach of: "oh well, at least I received an interview!". 2) As you know, it takes most people in Canada 3 tries
  8. ETA: As of May 27, 2019, the NTP stream at McGill has been eliminated. https://www.mcgill.ca/medadmissions/applying/categories/roq/ntp So in my case, I completed some years part time and I didn't have the physics requirement. Otherwise, my other pre-reqs were valid and completed. For NTP, there are a few requirements: -you have to be considered a QC resident, -you have to have completed an undergraduate degree by July 31 of the year you would matriculate -you have to have completed at least 4 of the pre-reqs (out of 8 total), but any of them can be expired (so even if
