  1. Also, are trade names like Prozac or Spiriva allowed as answers?
  2. How specific are the answers in the CDM? If you need to treat a hypertensive patient, what do you type: Anti-hypertensives Beta-blocker Metoprolol Metoprolol PO Metoprolol 12.5mg PO daily
  3. A friend is asking what % the MCQ portion and CDM portion accounts for in the total score. Does anyone remember?
  4. Asking for a friend... Does your residency program know if you failed part 2? Personally, I don't remember entering any residency information on the application. If I remember correctly, it just had med school info which we filled for part 1.
  5. Thanks rmorelan. I learned that during my 6 month grace period post-graduation, the federal portion of my loan has interest accumulating, but my provincial portion does not. Is there a way to only pay the federal portion first, and then pay the provincial portion at the end of the 6 months? It's tricky for OSAP, because the loan is "integrated".
  6. How are you guys paying back federal/provincial student loan debt during residency? Options I can think of: Option 1. Use LOC to pay back entire student loan debt, and then pay what you can on the LOC debt. I hear this is better because LOC interest rate is lower than federal/provincial student loan interest rate, right? Option 2. Use savings to pay back student loan debt month-by-month. I hear there are "tax-saving" advantages to doing this, but I'm not clear on the details? Which method wins out in the end if you take the interest paid and "tax-savings" into account?

  8. I thought passing the MCCQE1 is not a requirement for starting residency. I thought you can still start the program, but take it again later on?
  9. How did you get new reference letters that quickly?
  10. Everyone finds out eventually. There's no point to hide these things. I would respect a person more for straight up telling everyone.
  11. NRMP is out already? Edit: oops, it's a separate match
  12. This. The match rate gets worse and worse with time.
