    SoonTibiaDr reacted to futureortho in How to become an orthopedic surgeon   
    I was just admitted to medical school in canada. I was wondering how does matching work? how do you get research/build your cv? I know i have a long way to go but for the past 10+ years ive wanted to go into ortho. How do i start building my cv accordingly to improve my chances at matching?

    Do that for sure... Also ask for letter in any rotation where you get a good vibe with the preceptor. You may not even end up emailing them for it come carms, but it's such a relief to have back up letters. Also if someone offers a letter ... Take it. Best letters come from people that offer (you can request copies of your letters from carms so that's what I've based this on)

    SoonTibiaDr reacted to CHG in Format of classes next year? (Medicine)   
    It will 100% NOT be online! We've told admin that we think that would completely defeat the point of the ceremony and they agree. No firm date yet for obvious reasons but I would guess probably at the end of second semester. I'm actually kind of jealous of you guys - I think it will be way more fun to watch all of your friends that you've just spent the last (crazy) year with walking across the stage to get their white coat instead of a bunch of people that you don't know yet! 
    As soon as there is a date confirmed it'll be passed along to you guys

    SoonTibiaDr got a reaction from dh. in What are some solid ways to prepare to write the MCAT   
    Efficiently go through a set of prep books and complete discrete questions after you read a chapter. Do as many practice passages / questions as possible. Review them after and understand the rationale behind why each answer choice is incorrect / correct. Do timed practice test from a 3rd party (EK, Kaplan, Altius etc) and then take them up the day after. Review weak a topics and knowledge gaps. Rinse and repeat. Save the AAMC Practice material until ~1 month before your test date. Treat the AAMC material like gold and review their rationale behind incorrect / correct. Review weak areas and gaps in your knowledge. Try to chill the day before your test. Crush MCAT.

    SoonTibiaDr reacted to CHG in Police Check Q   
    Hi! I actually spoke to administration about this for you guys because some other incoming students were having similar problems. For right now, there should be instructions in your acceptance package on writing/signing/sending a declaration. Basically this is a piece of paper you write and sign saying "I can guarantee my police check is going to come back clean". Doing this extends the deadline to July 30th instead of June 30th.
    Admin told me they "have an alternative option in development" which should be communicated to you guys very shortly. They wouldn't specify to me what that is (probably because it's not solidified yet) but confirmed that you should just submit the declaration and wait for their email!
    Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

    SoonTibiaDr reacted to Mel96b in Would it be okay to start practicing sutures before school starts?   
    I get it. I remember during my bachelors I was organizing integration activities and a guy was almost harrassing me to give him my notes / powerpoint / book references so he could start studying during the summer. At this time, I was just as salty as you are. Chill out dude!
    And now I understand how he was feeling. Poor dude. Now I'm the fluffy bunny... but oh well, I don't care. I've been waiting 5 years for this moment. I'll watch as much video about note taking in med school as I want LOL! Sue me.
