  2. I'm curious, is 80+ hrs/week a reality even for ROAD specialties? I've heard from O&D residents that their days are mostly 8-9am to 5-6pm excluding call, and they would be on call, as junior residents, once per week or even less frequently. Senior residents would usually be back-up call for juniors so the hours are even better.
  3. Which shows that they're well compensated here in Canada...
  4. Is 5-600k before or after overhead? If before how much is overhead usually?
  5. That's my point! I'm thinking it's reasonable that there should be more dramatic cuts
  6. https://cmajnews.com/2019/10/08/are-fees-for-cataract-surgery-still-too-high/ "The negotiated fees paid to ophthalmologists for cataract surgery hover around $400 across the country, but they have been falling. Rocha says the fee in Manitoba has decreased by about 10% over the past 20 years, while fees in Ontario have fallen by 25%. Cuts like these will hurt recruitment and retention of doctors, he says. Sweetman says that although technology costs have risen, productivity appears to have increased faster, so even the reduced fees are probably still too high. And he doubts the costs
  7. I was thinking for example once you buy an equipment such as slit lamp you can use it for many many years...
  8. I also wonder if this overhead is persistent throughout ophtho's career, or just when they start
  9. You're in first year how can you possibly be too late for anything
  10. Just wondering, what are the numbers you have heard for an average ophtho?
  11. Yea I think this makes sense. Anyway I'm really glad and grateful. Best of luck to everyone who's still waiting, GOOD NEWS WILL COME!!
  12. Will they still update my "waitlist rank" when they've already moved me to the accepted status?
  13. OMG OMG I DON'T KNOW IT STILL SAYS: Waitlist Rank TBD in early May I WAS SCARED THAT THEY WILL TAKE THE OFFER AWAY SO I PAID THE DEPOSIT IMMEDIATELY (well I guess they can still retract the offer if it's a mistake despite that deposit was paid, hmmm...)
  14. Hi guyss, So I'll probably want take PHGY 209 (Mammalian Physiology I) if I don't get in this cycle before I re-apply next year. Is there any way I can get this class done online?
