  3. Very interested in hearing more about this. Im currently an MS4 applying to rads, internal med, family med and trying to decide which I should do. I know that radiology is no way a ROAD specialty anymore, and that the residency is gruelling in a very unique way, but I love the content and diagnostic aspect of the specialty. That being said, I love the outpatient clinic environment and the content of internal as well. I just want to be able to prioritize geographic location, lifestyle and flexibility for career adaptation as I age, because if I am not able to do this, I feel like I wont b
  4. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone can recommend good, high yield interventional radiology rotations in canada based on personal experience or experiences of friends, classmates. I am mostly interested in the oncology procedures. Thanks!
  5. Hello all, i am currently planning for electives and I got my lowest choice option on my application at one school. In light of this, I was considering submitting a late elective application to western (the 1000$ option, crazy I know). I would like to know if anyone had experience with this (I emailed them to ask a few days ago but the haven’t answered me yet). In particular, I would like to know if I apply and there is no space, will they refund the 1000$, partially refund it or keep it? also, are there other schools that accept late applications (later than the 16 week minimum wind
  6. Hello, I was wondering if there is anyone here who really saw themselves in 2 specialties going into third year and if so, how they organized their electives in order to parallel plan, and also, how they asked for letters with both in mind. I have 10 weeks of electives in third year and a 2 week elective right before the carms period (this elective is during the time where interviews start being released - so it pretty much is only good for face time pre-interview). I already have 4 week CORE rotation confirmed in one of the two specialties.
  7. It is true that Sherbrooke limits us to only 4 weeks in a non-clinical specialty (diagnostic radiology, pathology, etc)....however they REALLY don't enforce it. They just ''suggest'' this rule because they really emphasize the importance of clinical knowledge. I haven't heard if this is the case for other schools.
  8. Also, is there any way to see the relative competitiveness of all the rads programs in canada? I know that Toronto, UBC and McGill are classically the most competitive for any field, but it would be nice to see detailed stats on how many people apply to each rads program in canada just to get a feel.
  9. Thanks for the input everyone. I have been looking at my elective options and have spoken to a few successful rads applicants this year. This is what I have gathered: 2 weeks is generally enough for a rads rotation at most places (as per successful applicants), however its best to spend 4 weeks at your top choice. McMaster and Calgary are really selective for students that have actually rotated there. Ottawa, Queens and University of Montreal offer interviews even if you didn't actually rotate there So from this info, I think I will structure my electives in the following
  10. Hi all, I'm a second year medical student at University of Sherbrooke. We have reached the point in our year where we have to choose our core elective track (in other words, the order of our rotations) and start planning our electives. I am a student who is VERY interested in radiology (1st choice) and also very interested in nuclear medicine and radiation oncology (tied for second choice). I have 10 weeks total of pre-carms electives. My first elective is only a 2 week elective in the month of October 2019 and my other 8 weeks can either be split into 2x 4 week electives, 1x4
