  1. Thanks! I’m happy to hear we can match to other provinces too from Quebec!
  2. Thanks! I’ve heard from some Quebec students that it’s typically not as competitive here (although this year there were no leftover spots and there typically are). Do you know if this is true?
  3. Thanks! Do you find that research is more of a checklist thing or does the research have to be top-notch. I would like to do a few research projects in internal med if I can and I’m trying to get involved, but since I don’t have a research background i’m worried it might not be enough. also do you think some research would strongly increase the chances of matching (along with doing all IM electives, good letters, etc.?)
  4. Thanks a lot for replying! I have a strong preference for IM so this is somewhat reassuring. I just find it very conflicting whether or not I should backup with FM (I don’t really want to do FM but I fear going unmatched). I was also wondering if any schools are particularly friendly to fully bilingual applicants (francophone but no accent in English). I will apply everywhere, but I’m hoping places like Ottawa or Manitoba would be friendly due to French minorities in these areas?
  5. Hey guys, I’m an Université de Montréal medical student and I have my mind set on internal medicine. I always heard it was fairly uncompetitive due to the large number of spots/programs, but apparently for the last couple of years it’s been really hard to get into. This is really disappointing since I didn’t really want to apply to FM (just all out IM -broadly). I was wondering if you guys know 1. If it’s still an option to only apply IM and be pretty safe in terms of Carms. 2. How to become competitive? Particularly research, which isn’t an area I’m really experienced in.
  6. Hey, I was wondering if you guys think that, given IMs increasing competitiveness, it is safe to apply only to IM? (I’m a French-speaker studying at Université de Montréal but I’m bilingual so I will be applying everywhere in Canada). I personally was planning to do that, since I can apply to every program and I am planning to max out my electives in IM and the subspecialties I’m interested in (rheumatology/endocrinology). However, I’m kind of worried now given the current trend (more 1st choice apps + lots of people parallel plan into it).
