  1. I am concerned that they would find out because it may affect future career prospects - not because I am probation or failing out lol. are you sure people hold such negative views and make such assumptions.
  2. Assuming you will use flex days for interviews and you have preceptors who will be providing your reference letters for CaRMS ( from outside your home program).
  3. I started a research project with a staff over 2 years ago when I was applying to a very competitive discipline in CaRMS. This particular staff was always very slow in getting back to me throughout the project , and I don't think I felt very supported through the project. Now, I did not match to that discipline in CaRMS, should I continue with this project? The project has been submitted for publication.
  4. Half of my ITERS have been satisfactory and the other have were outstanding.. I also had a comment in my first core rotation saying that I was not knowledgable in anesthesia and I need to do more reading in anesthesia... other than that it is mostly professional, keen, or enthusiastic or pleasure to work with.. Do program directors care about your ITERS?
  5. I was also told to avoid Calgary FM program for these reasons and apparently given the situation in AB some FM grads have to practice in a rural area after graduation...
  6. OK- even if you say a strong reference letter? I don't think that the preceptor disliked me or anything- Its just that he did not say it would be really nice to write you one or pleasure to write you one.. he just you are strong clerk overall and here is one thing that I encourage you to do more in the rest of your clerkship
  7. I asked for a reference letter today and preceptor had to think for a second before he said yes. I ask him if he can write a strong reference letter and siad its totally fine if he can't write one.. Do most preceptors just say yes to be nice?
  8. inttersting, since plastic sx, opthalmology, and derm are very lucrative, how do PD make sure that students are interested in subject matter rather than $$$?
  9. No way they make that much.... I know academic dermatologist /plastic surgeons make as much as any other specialist... lolI have never heard of those numbers lol
