  1. I did an MPH in Canada and am a current medical student. I pursued graduate school not explicitly to improve my stats for MD admissions but to secure an alternate career path if I was never accepted to medicine. Public health training has been helpful to contextualize medicine but other than that I agree with the posts above that your stats at present seem more than adequate without the degree. As an aside, your interest in Eating Disorders is quite niche - in Canada, an MSc may support this better rather than a general MPH.
  2. UCalgary application manual - https://cumming.ucalgary.ca/mdprogram/future-students/admissions/applicant-manual
  3. UBC: Pros - Dedicated research track that you can enter either through CaRMS or transfer. Diverse researchers + clinical subspecialties. New facilities in Fraser + Island. Cons - Island relatively new program (3y old?) and building capacity. Seems service heavy? Alberta: Pros - New PD seems invested in listening to resident FB. Strong Addictions Psychiatry. Happy residents as per social, said the program leadership very supportive. Netcare. Cons - Call schedule/structure being reworked (trialing covering multiple sites), off service rotations include things like cardiology. I heard that
  4. Huge researchers in mood disorders at UBC. Eg - https://psychiatry.ubc.ca/person/lakshmi-yatham/
  5. @Persephone I was also wondering this re: Dal Psych! The latest schedule I have reads: 10:00 am – 1:00pm Interview events begin – Links to the hourly events and your schedule will be sent closer to the interview day I do have a "outlook invite" that has a link to the orientation, assuming from there they will direct us to interview rooms :|

  10. The PDF schedule doesn't show miscellaneous mandatory activities sprinkled throughout - you only get a couple of excused absences per year, would be risky to use them to skip 2 week's worth of mandatory so early in the year
  11. Highly recommend doing MPH in the meantime if you are interested in public health, regardless of whether you do PHPM ultimately. Source = this was my background before beginning medicine, and found it was infinitely useful as work experience prior to beginning my MD as well as for providing big picture context for what I am now studying.
  12. In one of my previous rounds of applying I had similarly very low scores on my interview and have been accepted this year (after A TON more reading about issues, practice structuring MMI responses, and preparing stories to share this time around) - it is absolutely possible!
  13. Just withdrew my offer at UAlberta upon being confirmed at UCalgary
  14. Received an offer today!!! Timestamp 4:11 PM - I will be declining my spot at UAlberta to attend UCalgary
