  1. Thanks for the really helpful insight everyone. The points brought up here have helped a ton during my rotations so far! Could someone shed light on how neuroradiology fellowships work. In the US, seems like the 2 year option is only if people want to be academics reading only neuro studies and often residents don't find the extra year of losing out on staff pay worth it financially. But in Canada it is different as academic positions are highly competitive and sought after, compared to this being the opposite in the US... In Canada, some schools offer 1 and/or 2 year neurorad fellow
  2. Thanks for the insightful reply @W0lfgang When you say "bound to open up, especially in toronto and vancouver", do new grads get these jobs? Or is it more like, yeah the job opening is there but honestly they're looking for someone who's been a sub specialized staff-researcher in Europe for 10 years How have your co-residents fared in the job market over the years? Must they relocate to smaller cities? And for yourself, did you get your gig through word of mouth/people knew and liked you, or was it a cold application for a posting?
  3. Was hoping to have a conversation going like this SDN thread. Learned a lot from there (sounds like mammo and neuro are good choices?) But would be nice to hear whether this is true for Canada too https://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/radiology-fellowship-info.1307561/
  4. Currently a PGY1 in a small DR program. I know it is a bit early to start thinking about fellowships but we start applying for those in PGY3/4, so it does not hurt to ask around. Looking forward to what the pm101 hive mind has to say. I am interested in all subspecialties and I know that will probably change as I progress in my training. But really my goal is to practice in either Toronto or Vancouver, so I will pursue whatever fellowship/subspec that will get me there. And yes, I know almost everyone wants to move to those two cities but hey, I am no different. I am a single dude with no
  5. Found this on a USMD forum, but seems like a fair thing to wonder about for Canadian schools?? "How much does the interview change a program's rankings? All my interviews have been very conversational and benign, with majority of time spent on hobbies and interests outside of medicine. Not sure how much a program is influenced by the interview and how much it changes things prior to the interview. I can certainly see how if you said something off-putting or can't hold a conversation how it negatively affects you, but my impression is vast majority of applicants are normal pleasant people
