  1. Hello, I understand that after the completion of the 2nd iteration, programs can opt to offer the unfilled positions in a post match process. I don't find any data about this process though from previous years ?Does Quebec FM programs usually participate in the post match given the large number of positions left in these programs every year ?
  2. I have a question regarding working as a hospitalist as a family physician. 1) Would that require any additional years of training after the core 2 years ? 2) Would you be able as a Family physician to work as a hospitalist in academic centers or hospitals in large cities or you will be limited mostly to the rural areas ?
  3. I know it might be a long shot, but any chance someone would have an idea on what FM sites were left unfilled after 2nd iteration last year in Québec schools (wether McGill or the francophone schools ) ? I mean in general is it the rural sites or is it usually Montréal sites since they offer more positions ? Any reply would be greatly appreciated
  4. I got an interview by email for FM that was sent by uMontreal. I know that the 3 french schools hold a common IV for FM but if you get 1 email from one program does that mean that you are only considered for that program ? I am an IMG

  6. In my opinion, It's hard to tell, at least till we get the results of the first round. I wonder also if the reason why the programs did not mention a minimum score to be invited to an interview for IMGs for QE1 while at the same time mentioning a 412 minimum score in NAC OSCE ( note that both exams underwent major changes recently and only few sessions for both took place ) is due to the discrepancy in scoring between the IMGs and CMGs in the QE1 while the NAC OSCE is only taken by the IMGs Anyone have any insight on that ?
  7. any advice on Quebec FM sites ? whether at McGill or french universities ? I mainly want to get an idea on how different the programs are from each other ( McGill vs French universities or differences between the 3 french universities themselves ) in terms of competitiveness, types of population exposure and potential to do R3 in hospital medicine ? Would appreciate any answer ( in French or English )
  8. this is a list provided by CARMs for programs that requires casper for IMGs, not sure if it is the same for CMGs hope that helps https://carms.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016017712-I-am-an-International-medical-graduate-which-programs-require-the-CASPer-for-the-2020-R-1-match-
  9. I am a recent graduate IMG living in Quebec ( Did high school in french so eligible to apply in all 4 schools ). I passed MCCQE1 and scheduled to take the OSCE during the current session September 2019. I will be applying for the equivalence right after. I would like to know what are the chances for a french speaking IMG to match into a family medicine program in Quebec ? what are they looking for in an IMG ( scores ? research/MSc/PHD/publications ? year of graduation ? ...etc ) Veuillez répondre en français ou en anglais
  10. I used Toronto Notes + Uworld step 2 ck + The MCC prep exam TN and Uworld are good sources to study the basics, however the exam is more similar to the MCC prep exam For public health, ethics, community medicine sections u can check the answers of the MCC prep exam questions where they usually provide explanations, I used to read the topics from the provided references. For ethics check the CMPA website really helpful
  11. I contacted the CARMs and got some info I would like to share on this matter. Apparently some provinces (so far Ontario) are asking candidates to provide proof of citizenship or permanent residency BY THE ROL deadline ( in February ) not by the file review deadline ( in November ). However, it is up to the program to decide whether or not to invite you to an interview if you haven't yet provided your PR documents.
  12. Hello, I applied for PR months ago and according to the timeline I anticipate getting it in the next few months (hopefully before the deadline to submit ROL) but I will not be able to submit it by the CARMS's November deadline. Is it possible to apply for CARMS and be invited for interviews without the PR ? or programs don't usually invite you for interviews unless all your documents including PR are submitted ? Thanks!
  13. Are you an IMG ? my understanding is that the CMQ equivalence is required only for IMGs and probably non-quebec medical graduates ( not sure about that one ) for instructions on how to apply : http://www.cmq.org/page/en/reconnaissance-equivalence-diplome.aspx It should take around a month provided that you have all your documents ready but i would recommend to start as soon as possible to allow time in case of any missing documents before the match season starts
  14. Thank you so much for your reply! I am in the process of obtaining the CMQ equivalence right now and hopefully can apply for the 2020-2021 match at the end of this year
