    True, but aren't the family doctors who are not salaried capable of incorporating their practise? 
    So they don't get the juicy pension but they do get a tax break...each one has it's benefits but I'm sure it comes down to roughly the same post tax income

    well not under the capitation model, no they don't. They just get a flat rate per patient per year. 
    Not a family doctor so obviously I have some limitations in that area understanding wise - others can comment! but the per year fee is roughly 135 under the newer model, which works out for a roster of 2000 patients to be around 270,000 which is in the ball park we are all hearing about for things. You have a ton of other smaller things thrown in there as well but my point was the government was until rather recently very actively getting rid of the old intermediate assessment model. Most doctors aren't using it now as a result.

    I would expect he’s talking after-tax and after overhead take home, assuming no tax-saving measures are used.

    That is correct. After my graduation, I moved to Calgary and oil prices dropped crazy. Most petroleum and chemical engineers lost their jobs within a few months of that. Then I moved back to Ontario and I could luckily find a job as a Tester of a medical software package, then I learned more and used the knowledge I had gained by trial-and-error in my teenage time and basically became a software engineer (not a great one though, I don't have the background anyways)...

    30k per year is minimum wage exactly, to put it into perspective haha. Technically, you're making minimum wage after debt servicing (and breaking your back in the process)!

    member_225 reacted to rmorelan in Why do people say psychiatry is a low paying specialty?   
    Well the OMA passed their motion on it internally last Sunday so from that side it is real. Next we have to see what the government comes up with during arbitration at this point. The OMA deal is basically the the best possible outcome. The government can easily make it worse. 
    As for when they will happen the answer would be slowing and starting basically now.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as you; my first year was a full course load (7 first, 6 second), but in my second year I did 4 and 4. I've emailed a few medical schools about this that use a weighted GPA formula (UBC and U of T), and they've all told me that they give you a section on their application forms to explain your situation if you think you deserve to have the weighted GPA formula applied. So you still get the chance to explain why you think you deserve the wGPA, they may be willing to apply a wGPA formula anyway. However, it's entirely up to them whether they do it or not, and at U of T at least, they won't tell you if they gave you the wGPA or used the cGPA.  I also emailed the Schulich School, and they said they consider the best two years where you were taking a full course load.So unfortunately, it looks like any year where you weren't taking a full 5 courses wouldn't be counted at that school. Congrats on finishing you first year with such a great GPA, I'm sure you worked hard for it.

    Not exactly a preference, but their GPA cutoff is lower for those from a geographic location. Still, they don't have quotas to fill.
    McMaster does limit the number of interviews given to OOP which is likely to reflect in their final class selection.

    It's worth a shot, especially if you have a desire to work up north. On OMSAS, NOSM does have a separate questionnaire for francophone students and they say on their website that they give an advantage to francophone students.  Here is the selection criteria from their website:

    You can also check the admitted/rejected thread but I'd say give it a go, you never know! Goodluck

    Honestly not down to study hard and get a 3.98 gpa to go to a Canadian dental school, then endure 4 years of rigorous training and education just to struggle to get a stable job cuz of someone with 3.45 gpa who paid for their degree elsewhere

    Ultimately the patient suffers, dentists will try to over treat in order to maintain their incomes in face of the saturation. This is why it's a problem and needs to be addressed.

    I’m sure enough people feel the same way as you, why doesn’t anyone try to form some organization and do something about it. Complaining on forums doesn’t actually accomplish anything

    Je te dirais que les gens de DMD performent parce qu'ils travaillent fort! Comme en médecine, certains/certaines veulent des résidences! Donc peut importe le nombre de crédits qu'on donnera à des étudiants aussi performants, ils sauront obtenir des bons résultats! Je vous confirme que les sessions de DMD sont excessivement chargées. J'entre en 2e et notre session d'automne a 30 crédits...c'est insane!
