  5. McMaster EM posted an interview tips thing on their instagram... made me think they were releasing offers today but still no dice.
  6. Might be too late now, but what if said internist was leaving at the end of this year? would that change whether or not you'd still apply to that program? Something to think about!
  7. Shadowing was never something that got you any points on your OMSAS applications. As someone who has done file review, you are better off spending time doing volunteering where you provide a meaningful service (i.e. Kids help phone for example) than any sort of physician shadowing.
  8. Idk, I'm just going through the process myself. I'm guessing if it looks like you didn't try (lots of spelling/syntax errors), didn't answer the questions, etc.
  9. I've been told that a bad personal statement can sink your application but a good one won't necessarily get you in. My resident contacts have told me to aim for something that is honest and demonstrates your personality
  10. Have your electives been assigned already? From the point of view from someone in the class of 2021, we had little control over what electives we did. It seems like you want to do surgery. Would you be happy doing medicine (i..e backing up with IM) if you matched to it? If not, then doing medicine is not the best idea, aside from gaining some general medicine proficiency. What specialty are you applying for?
  11. Neurology isn't a an IM subspecialty (although it used to be). Can imagine that is fairly low on the procedure side of things. You may need to do LPs occasionally. Also it is literally cerebral
  12. I think that's where doing the +1 in EM is super helpful. From the docs I've talked to to, they said the extra year was very intense and they learned more in the +1 alone than in the 2 years prior. Most new FM grads will get 2 core blocks of EM and maybe 2 more if they use electives. They'll usually be treated as the junior resident and won't be the ones leading resuscitations, doing sedations, putting in chest tubes, etc. The +1 residents on the other hand are the senior residents on and get thrown into the more complex cases.
  13. Do you have a couple other strong letters from other specialities? I definitely think this year of all years you have a true excuse of being unable to get a FM elective.
  14. Pretty sure there is some wiggle room with letters this year. Do you have any FM letters or are you concerned because you have 0?
