  1. That is definitely something I'm considering doing - perhaps writing the MCAT next spring/summer and applying after my first year. Of course, if I did get into an MD program part way through vet school it would sure feel like I'd put myself through an enormous and unnecessary hardship & expense when I could have just continued working in my current job while apply to MD programs....but it might be the safest approach. I don't know your reasons for wanting to switch from dentistry to medicine, but I definitely think vet med and dentistry share some similar challenges that aren't prese
  2. Thank you for taking the time to respond to each of my points! With regards to the above, I'm sure GPs have their share of rude, demanding, entitled patients, but for me the key difference is that a family doc doesn't have to cater to these patient's needs in order to remain employed. After all, if a disgruntled patient decides to find another doctor, there will be no shortage of patients who are eager to take his/her place. For me, it would be very comforting to know that I can simply be myself without having to put on a show, so to speak, in order to impress clients/patients and stay aflo
  3. Thanks for your reply but I don't understand what you mean by "5 years in pro rice". What is pro rice, and what 5 years are you referring to?
  4. I'm about to start vet school (in Canada) but I'm considering declining the opportunity in order to apply to human medicine in the future. This is not a sudden change of heart, I've debated between the two careers for years and was planning to apply to med school had I not been accepted into vet school on my first attempt. Here are my main concerns: 1. I'm much more interested in the human body (its anatomy, physiology, diseases, etc.) than I am in other species. I like the idea of working with animals, but I'm not particularly interested in how they are put together. I have zero
  5. Thanks for the replies. Any thoughts on UOttawa, English or French stream?
  6. I'm an older applicant seeking a career change into medicine. I posted on here several months ago asking about McMaster & Western, which are likely my best chances given the way they look at GPA, etc. However, my wife and I live in Ottawa, where we have a home and our current careers, so I'm not exactly footloose and fancy-free. I'm therefore looking into nearby schools. My cGPA is around 3.65 (each year is about the same, unfortunately), but I have a Masters and an impressive career, with lots of maturity to demonstrate. Would I have a shot at UOttawa? If not the English progr
  7. Thanks for the info on NOSM; I certainly won't pin my hopes on them. I agree the MCAT should be my next step so that I can at least try for Western and McMaster before doing further undergrad studies.
  8. Thank you for your reply. I live in Ottawa and have never lived in Northern Ontario or a rural community. Do you know for a fact that this is a requirement even for applicants in the Francophone category? I've looked at the NOSM website and there is no mention that Francophone applicants must also have a Northern/rural connection....but perhaps it is required.
  9. Older non-trad here planning to apply to medicine in the next year or two. I live in Ontario, and I’m looking for suggestions as to how I should approach things. My educational background and career are in the arts, and I’m a successful small business owner, so I might be attractive to non-trad friendly schools, such as McMaster. I’ve recently taken a number of science courses part-time (bio, cell bio, biochem, genetics, etc.) and got an A+ in each one, so I’m confident in my ability to excel in the sciences. I haven’t taken the MCAT yet because I don’t want it to expire before I appl
