  1. That would be great if you could post them, or please feel free to personally message me! Were you able to gather if 1:4 is standard amongst the Ontario schools as well? This hasn't really come up in the info sessions I've attended. Thanks for your help!
  2. Does anyone have an ideas/insights about the differences in call requirements across FM sites, particularly Ontario vs British Columbia? Not sure if I'm misinterpreting this, but UBC FM sites seem a lot more call heavy than Ontario sites, for example. Or is it typically 1 in 4 (until 11pm with no post-call day or 24 hrs with a post-call day) over most rotations for the 2 years regardless of where you do residency in Canada? Thanks!
  3. On this topic, does anyone have an ideas/insights about the differences in call requirements across FM sites across Canada? Not sure if I'm misinterpreting this, but UBC FM sites seem a lot more call heavy than Ontario sites, for example.
  4. Not yet. Does anyone know if the 7 min "answer period" will include follow-up questions?
  5. Do you know how to go about requesting to see your reference letters or Casper report? Wasn't able to find this info on the website.
  6. Can confirm they have! Wondering if invites will continue to be sent out on a rolling basis over the weekend?
  7. Would you mind elaborating? Especially about the the high vs. low value of learning experiences/preceptors? Thanks!
  8. would highly recommend purchasing an osmosis prime account!
  9. Wow that's a long time. Did they tell you how you would make up for this time, or set out expectations for your time off?
  10. UofT has also cancelled remaining 4th year electives, but CC3s are to continue rotations until further notice. Are other schools handling clerks differently?
  11. Can you elaborate on the "very good" FM programs in Canada vs. some of the weaker ones if your goal is to practice rural?
  12. yup

    On Podcasts...

    any other suggestions?

  14. I don't think you're able to apply halfway through your MSc. From my understanding, UofT requires that you complete any started MSc prior to beginning medical school.
  15. I think it can help to provide them with a list outlining the CANMEDs competencies and asking if they can highlight traits/skills from that list!
  16. What would you recommend as some of the superior resources?
  17. As people have mentioned in other EM (5 years) vs. FM+ EM threads, it's not entirely practical to split your work between both family medicine and emerg at the same time. Instead, it sounds like most FM+EMs will work in emergency medicine for a given time, while having the option to practice FM down the road (if you become tired of the shift-work, if you're feeling burnt-out etc.) It also sounds like you have the desire to work/live one day in Toronto. As a FM+EM working in emergency, there may be less opportunity for future work in Toronto, especially in downtown academic centres. Would
  18. If someone drops from Hamilton, the new Hamilton spot goes to someone on the waitlist. Those who were offered regional campus spots will not be offered a Hamilton position.
  19. Not necessarily true! Personal experiences may vary, but I abbreviated quite a few words, used symbols ('&') in order to stretch my ABS word count, and I received 6 interviews across Canada.
