  3. Aus, Ireland, UK, and Israel all have top tier medical programs. But if your goal is to come back to US or Canada, then Israel is by far the most practical route. The rule used to be such that, if you were studying in one of the Israeli American programs, you would not be able to stay in Israel to do your residency. You HAD to leave! In recent years, they've made some leeway for people who really want to stay, but that just shows you how efficient these schools are. They do their utmost to get you out of the country! HHAHAA! ...That's not at all how it is in Aus, Ireland, and th
  4. I don't speak a word of hebrew and I'm not Jewish. Sackler actually has a video about the school on their website. It gives you a good idea what the program is like. For Ben Gurion University, I would look on youtube. There were a couple of great videos last time I searched. The Technion is a very researched oriented school. In Engineering, they were ranked top 15 in the world. A couple of chemists won a Nobel Prize there a few years ago. Just shows you the caliber of research going on there.
  5. Oh, I'm not applying...I'm going!!! I'm leaving for Israel in one month. I had interviews in Canada and the US, but Ben Gurion was my first choice. These programs never used to be available for Canadians, so I think it's important to get the word out. It's only in recent years that the Technion and Sackler have allowed Canadians to apply. BGU has a different focus, so as far as I know, they have always allowed Canadians to apply. MD with an adventure!
  6. In Tel Aviv (Sackler) , virtually everyone speaks English. You don't need to know any hebrew. The hebrew classes are not even mandatory. If hebrew was so important, they would require you to have a little fluency before even applying or entering the program. For BGU (situated in Beer Sheva), the population is much more diverse. Having a knowledge of clinical hebrew might enhance you're clinical experience. But most grads come out of the program not knowing much hebrew. Ultimately, hebrew should not make or break your decision.
  7. Hey everyone, The 3 American medical programs in Israel are often overlooked by Canadians, mainly because they are not advertised like the Australian and Irish schools. The Israeli schools include Sackler, the Technion, and Ben Gurion (in collaboration with Columbia medical center). Students often choose the Israeli programs ahead of American programs in the States because in addition to virtually guaranteeing a solid residency in the States, you also get a unique cultural experience. The Israeli programs are a better alternative than Australian and Irish schools if you want
  8. Hey everyone, Great to see so much interest. Yes, I will be leaving Paul because I will no longer be in Ottawa. If I was still here, I would certainly continue. I've volunteered with the blind, burn survivors, and developmentally disabled, but working with Paul has given another dimension of maturity which I find has helped me tremendously. He has give me a new perspective on life. Paul fights to survive everyday, whereas, our stresses (even as Pre-meders ) are much more insignificant. Evil
  9. Hey everyone, I am about to enter medical school this year and want to let you know of an experience which was huge for my medical application and interview success. I volunteered with Paul, a quadriplegic in the Ottawa region. If you are interested in gaining some hands-on experience, please private message me. I would love to help you hungry pre-meds, pre-dents, pre-pharms, etc out. There will be a few openings coming up in the next few weeks and a couple of openings for long-term volunteers. Look forward to hearing from ya!!! Evil

  12. Yeah...I'll probably convert 1/2 of my funds tomorrow and wait a bit until I convert the other half. ... Evil
  13. LOL...Well, I can only take 50 000 out of my line of credit per year, so I'm looking to lock the exchange rate for the other years as well, without actually depositing the funds. ...is this even possible...? ...
