  1. As the first year of the newest edition of the curriculum I think most of our class agrees that one of the best parts is having the same extra day of the week off each week. It helps break up the week and also gives you a reliable day to book your meetings, OCLOs, appointments, grocery shop, etc. I think the preference for the ratio of small groups to other stuff will depend on the individual. I prefer small groups > synchronous lectures > asynchronous lectures but that's not the case for everyone in the class. UME did go a bit too far during respirology and covered some important topics
  2. 1. Laptop. I try to read through the slide deck before the lecture and add any Anki cards that aren't already in my premade deck so that way I take minimal notes during the lecture and can focus on listening. Another bonus is if it is a pre-recorded lecture I can usually play it at 2x speed comfortably if I've read through the slides once. 2. Straight to Anki (usually at this point there isn't much that the lecturer said that wasn't already on the slides or wasn't already in the premade deck). 3. I continue doing Anki according to schedule. If I feel like I need it I'll supplement by
  3. The Medgames 2020 page was updated recently and now shows that medgames 2022 will be at UdeM January 7-9. Not much other info but hopefully the pre-clerks have a chance to go this year, it's a great time. https://www.facebook.com/medgames2022
  4. Not sure, I've had my G for about 3 years as well. It may come down to my car being 10 years old. Did you set your address to London?
  5. In my experience I got the cheapest quote from OMA. 115/month for 3rd party or 156/month for comprehensive. Can save more if you download their app that tracks your driving habits. I also looked at Intact and Pembridge which both quoted me around 175-185/month for comprehensive coverage.
  6. 1. The main difference between SRTP and SROP is that SRTP is 2 summers and has to be individual, SROP is one summer and can be in a small group. Since SROP is shorter they want it to be built off of your existing work so you are more likely to accomplish something in the shorter allotted time. 2. I am referring to any type of research. Some people have 3 different research projects they are involved in, one of which counts as their experiential learning longitudinal research requirement. Other students have just 1 project they are involved in and that's the one that serves as their experi
  7. 1. You would be a good candidate for SRTP where you pick a project from a list and commit to it for 2 summers and you get paid (https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/research/student_trainee_programs/student/srtp/index.html). As for the research in the experiential learning course, it can be whatever you want, it is a way for the school to encourage all students to be involved in at least 1 research project. They provide a list of projects that you can pick from or you can pursue your own project and use that to fulfill your longitudinal research requirements. 2. Honestly that sentence is vague but
  8. @CHGcan speak more to this but there are plenty of clinicians based in Windsor with research projects that students can get involved in. Most students are involved throughout the school year, especially because it is required to have a longitudinal research project starting in preclerkship.
  9. Anking works fairly well if you unsuspend the relevant cards. You could also ask upper years or classmates to share their decks if you want something more specific to your school's curriculum. The Michigan Anatomy deck is nice for cadaver images.
  10. Red Cross, lifesaving society, and st John's ambulance are all ok for Western.
  11. I go to Western and my preferred name is used on my name tag, hospital ID, most class lists, and email address. It seems like randomly my legal name will show up on attendance but most of the time there's no hassle. You can message me if you have more questions.
  12. Yes of course the loan isn't 0% interest. I just mean that you don't have to make payments from a chequing account on a monthly basis.
  13. Interest payments are not required either. My monthly minimum payment shows up as $0.
  14. Class councils take turns organizing the sales. The 2023 council hosted the fall/winter sale and orders were due a couple weeks ago. There will be a spring/summer sale in April if I recall correctly but if you PM me I can put you in contact with the organizer of the most recent sale and see if they can slide your order in somehow. The least popular designs get scrapped/sometimes the manufacturers are switched to be more affordable so the options may not be exactly the same.
