  6. Hello, I am currently an x-ray technologist and I'm looking at applying to NOSM. NOSM has a Indigenous application track. I am Cree, but was adopted. I have my adoption paperwork stating that my birth family on my maternal side was Cree. Throught the adoption and no fault of my own I lost out on my connection to my people and culture. I am currently active in my local urban Indigenous community as an Indigenous Member of the Muskoka Indigenous Friendship Centre and volunteer with them. I am co-running my local chapter (get it up and running etc., all volunteer) under the Muskoka Indigenous Friendship Centre and am a member of the steering committee for that chapter as well (all members must be Indigenous). I plan programing for the local Indigenous community through the chapter and volunteer to run these programs and set them up. I am sure that the President of the Muskoka Indigenous Friendship Centre would write me a letter. I am also part of the Orange Shirt Day Organizing Committee for my home town. Should I apply through the Indigenous Admission Stream? My other question relates to the extenuating circumstances part of the application. I have two undergrad degrees. My first one I struggled, but didn't know why at the time (2.7 cGPA). Long story short, I had severe undiagnosed and untreated OCD which popped up during my last year of high school we believe. When I say severe OCD, I mean hours out of my day performing routines (yes I thought it was normal and my family didn't know I was struggling). During the beginning of my first year of my second degree I went to the doctor and was told I had the worse case of OCD they had ever seen. I was told it would take up to 6 months to see a psychiatrist, but they would push to get me in ASAP. I was in with the psych 3 days later. They diagnosed me formally with severe OCD and said that they normally wait 3-4 sessions minimum to medicate a patient, but I was told I would not be leaving without medication that first session. Between the psychiatrist and tweaking my medications, we found a working combo and my grades improved drastically. The cGPA for my second degree was 3.64 (vs. the 2.7 cGPA of my first degree). Is this worth filling out the extenuating circumstances aspect of the application for? Being diagnosed and treated seriously changed my life for the better. INFO Born and raised (33 years) in a community considered northern by NOSM (they have a Local NOSM group at the hospital I work at). Rurality Index for Ontario (RIO): 62 Undergrad 1: 2.7 cGPA Undergrad 2: 3.64 cGPA Mature Student Medical Work Experience as an X-ray Tech: Approximately 4 years (8720 hours documented) working directly with patients and an interprofessional team in the ER, OR, Endoscopy Suite, ICU, CT.

Working in a classroom setting each with x-ray students teaching them everything from image analysis, to image correction, studying for the licensing exam etc. Currently, I am trying to expand the program to our sister hospital so that we can have more students that can learn here and hopefully stay to practice in the north. Work with two other local northern hospitals (not including the two hospitals I currently work at) going above and beyond what is required of the college the students come from and letting the students experience rotations at other, bigger northern hospitals to spark interest in things such as orthopedics and interventional imaging and other possible work environments in the north.

  10. Hi all, I have been lurking on this forum for a while. It’s been really nice to see actual interactions by likeminded individuals wading through the daunting application process. I have applied to NOSM this cycle. It’s been a long term goal of mine for the last 6 years and I finally applied. I’m 30, 4 kids, born and raised in a small town in Northern Ontario. Left for three years in my early 20’s but moved back as soon as we could. My background is in social sciences and I’ve been a business counsellor for Indigenous women, traveling all around Northern Ontario, including fly-in communities. I currently work in research for an Indigenous organization as the Chief Research Officer. I have decent ECs but my GPA isn’t great. I started university at 17, and had a rough couple years after we moved down east (near Ottawa). According to OMSAS my cGPA is 3.38, however, I do have a Masters degree, which puts me up to 3.58– still not great. I’m currently working on a second undergrad via Athabasca University (Bachelor’s in Health Administration) while I “wait” to get into medical school. This is absolutely my dream. The perfect profession and I intend to work and serve Northern Ontario until I physically can’t anymore. But I’m feeling pretty hopeless. So many people have competitive GPAs and I just feel like to recover my grades, it’s going to be a long and expensive journey, but I’m willing and committed to doing that. Even though it’s been INTENSE to keep up with family life, courses, and working. I’m reaching out for a little bit of hope. Does anyone know of anyone that got into NOSM with a lower GPA? I would appreciate any insight, words or encouragement or blunt advice! Thanks in advance!

  12. I have read in several places on premed 101 (and heard from several other students) that multiple family medicine programs allow you to add applications to additional sites (within their program) after interviewing. I am having trouble finding reference to this within the carms program description pages. I am wondering if anyone knows: 1. Which FM programs you can add additional site applications to late? (Particularly interested in UBC, Dalhousie, NOSM, and Memorial.) 2. How to logistically do this---assuming within carms portal exactly as you applied for other programs? 3. If we decide BEFORE the interview (i.e. now) that we would like to add a site application if we can do that? Really appreciate the help!
  13. Hi, I'm a 4th year biomed student at the university of Ottawa. My questions are: - Does NOSM use a weighted GPA system? Or is just my cGPA? - Is there a difference between the English and French applicants like there is at uOttawa? Thanks
  14. I'm about to go into my 4th in biomedical science at uOttawa and I'm in a French extended program. Here's my info: - 1st year GPA: 3.3 2nd year GPA: 3.9 3rd year GPA: 3.86 wGPA with OMSAS: 3.78 - Applying to the French stream at uOttawa and NOSM - EC's: French/English tutor, pianist at a church, choir, band, physiotherapy clerk, volunteered at a hospital, piano teacher at elementary school, private tutor (very brief), Sunday lesson teacher for kids, etc. - I live in Ottawa A lot of my EC's are centered around music and tutoring. I don't have 32+ entries like most people and honestly, I feel like my GPA is quite mediocre for med school. I am going to try my hardest to raise it in my 4th year and then write the MCAT (so I can apply to more schools if uOttawa doesn't work out). But, right now what are my chances of even getting an interview? Thanks a lot in advance!
  15. Hi , I was wondering if anyone knew if the geographic location in the sketch should be a postal code or a town/city name? I was thinking that they might be used in the NOSM context calculation. I can't seem to find anywhere, where it's specified though. Thanks for your help.
  16. Hey, Been reading up on NOSM and trying to look for admission stats and I found some but I'm not sure if it makes sense. I know NOSM has a bias towards applicants from rural settings, particularly northern ontario, but do they always reject applicants from urban areas? I don't see it written anywhere that only rural applicants are applied, but that seems to be what the admission stats I saw say. Has anyone gotten in from urban areas? thanks
