  1. Interesting. Do you know a source where we can see income stats for different provinces? I did a google search and it seems BC anesthesiologists tried to go on strike in 2012 due to low pay and the province bringing in too many international trainees. Did nothing come of that? That's pretty brutal that the province with the highest COL also has the lowest pay.
  2. I feel the exact same way. The thing that makes me feel better is that it's not just me feeling these hardships individually and that all us M1's across the country are in this together
  3. I'm in 1st year med and thinking a lot about pursuing anesthesiology.

I submitted my passport scan, verification of enrolment, site preference form, and reference letters by the Feb 14 deadline but have not heard anything from UBC since my interview. Please reassure me!
  8. Does anybody have a comprehensive source for current public health issues in Canada? I am hoping to find something similar in format to the UWashington bioethics page that can lay everything out for me in brief summaries. The best I have been able to find is look at various periodicals ex: CMAJ, Andre Picard's health column and White Coat Black Art with Brian Goldman.
  9. There is a luck component but it isn't necessarily the subjectivity of the evaluation, it is also that the applicant pool can vary widely in terms of NAQ excellence/proficiency each year
  10. Hey! I'm also interested in joining. please send me a message
