  1. I think a lot of people would use the LOC to pay off the interest anyway. It is fishy that their website states "no payments required until you graduate" even if its technically true.
  2. Cardiac surgery had a higher 1st choice match rate than general? Is this normal?
  3. Cause they're smart probably
  4. Gimme USMLEs, being evaluated based on how much I "fit" into a program is seriously terrifying. I'm an introvert and not the popular type so low key scared. Especially because I am interested in surgery.
  5. Yep I emailed the registrar and they sent me a letter
  6. I put several factory jobs which is maybe along the same lines. That being said, if you can find a position that may be better for your app or more enjoyable, go for it! In my last few years of uni I did TAing, marking and summer research instead.
  7. If I'm reading the schedule correctly there are only around 11 weeks of pre-CaRMS electives. Given the 3 discipline requirement I've heard of, this would barely allow you to max out your 8 weeks in one specialty let alone sufficiently explore a second (I'm interested in GSx first, CSx second). Also, if interested in an OOP program how many elective weeks there are sufficient?
  8. General thoracic in Canada. Its just the idea of going through so much debt and training to do Cardiac surgery then not being employable is absolutely terrifying. At the same time I don't want to regret not going for something I'm interested in.
  9. Lol I'm very open to changing my mind when shadowing is allowed again. I mostly was leaning to gen surg + thoracic fellowship but I also really like learning about heart anatomy and physiology. The job market definitely scares me, 4 procedures is not a deal breaker- probably an issue in a lot of specialties.
  10. And this would allow a person to practice as a CT or general surgeon in either country?
  11. I'm considering the US to increase chances for cardiac surgery or maybe general. Do you have any insight on those specialties in this context?
