  2. School interviewing at: UBC Specialty: Ob/Gyn Current interview date: January 21 Date would like to switch to: January 20 Any additional notes: Very close timeline to travel to another province. Have emailed the admin to re-schedule and they said it’s not possible.
  3. There's definitely a good point to be made above as well. I would suggest that you consider whether or not you feel you contributed substantially different things in either role, or if you think separating them would be redundant. With my club experience, my two roles didn't necessarily have a lot of the same responsibilities and I accomplished very different things during both which meant a lot to me, so I felt it warranted separating them so I could elaborate. If you felt that the differences in the positions are important and you don't want to sell your specific contributions short, separat
  4. ^I second this. The duties and responsibilities of treasurer are likely quite different than the responsibilities of being President, so I would say it's more than fair to put them down as separate entries. Good luck on your application!
  5. I am also curious about what sort of clinical exposure UofT offers. For example, I know UBC schedules time in family practice during the week to build general clinical exposure and understanding - does UofT do something similar to this?
  6. Same thing happened to me, even after a follow up email. Eventually I called and it turns out either they didn't see the email request (or never received it) and it was quickly sorted out. I was worried about pestering them too, but they understand how important this is!

  11. I'm in the same boat^. I emailed queensmd@queensu.ca because that was the email they used to acknowledge my application. Does anyone know if they have a separate admissions email, or would that be it?
