  1. Canadian NDEB is way more difficult than the US NBDE. Ask anyone who has taken both.
  2. If you're in Canada you typically register for the March exam in your 4th year. Exam was not digital. The Osce was paper based which is a change from every other year, likely why so many failures. Exam is always curved. Word is my school hasn't had a single Osce failure in over 20 years, apparently there were multiple this year. Who knows what happened
  3. Interesting, I always thought they were around 4-5%. Good to know!
  4. You have an LOC with a subprime interest rate and an interest only grace period, why not use that? It makes no sense to finance through a bank and pay a higher interest rate when you already have the funds available to you.
  5. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.saskdocs.ca/web_files/trends&ved=2ahUKEwjnv_KPqPniAhWGmuAKHVBTCTUQFjAAegQIBBAB&usg=AOvVaw120s9p6Wdl5Vj-2JoLuasP Page 68 has some comparisons. Keep in mind, that's payments received, most docs will still have some overhead.

  7. At U of S you start seeing Operative, Perio, and Diagnosis patients in March of 2nd year. You are responsible for booking your patients. Starting in 3rd year you are in the clinic every day, usually seeing 2 patients a day. You are given a daily grade on every patient that you see. You are also given a certain requirement for each class (a number of surfaces that need to be completed for operative etc.) in addition to competencies that are weighted much heavier. Students are put into groups and assigned a patient list and it is up to them to find their patients. If you're looking fo
  8. Pretty sure you'll have a bunch of reps visit you at the start of first year which will allow you to try a bunch of different styles and mags. At least that's how it was at my school. I went with Surgitel 2.5 flip downs.
  9. Unless things have changed you can email and they will give you a rough idea of where you are on the list (top, middle, bottom). OOP usually moves quite a bit.
  10. I don't know if you would consider it a graduate degree in the traditional sense but I'm thinking it's probably an MBA.
