  1. Hey I’m an incoming first year to University of Montreal! I’m curious about the competitiveness of neurology, since it’s one of the fields I’m interested in. I was planning to apply to English Canada + Quebec. Do you need tons of research and ECs? Or does an average student with electives in the field and decent evaluations have a good chance? thanks!
  2. 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.
  3. Hi everyone I was wondering how competitive it is to get into the research opportunities at the University of Alberta during my undergraduate degree. Thanks!
  4. Hey all. I know there's several (outdated) threads about how to match to X competitive specialty, and it's pretty evident that a variety of personalities/research/academic backgrounds are touted as the "key" to matching. But what kind of applicant doesn't match to, for example, ophthalmology/dermatology/plastics? Do they have to be an egregiously bad applicant, obviously ill-suited, or do mediocre applicants also get "filtered out" by CaRMS? And what exactly would constitute a mediocre applicant? If you become interested in your later years of medical school, have you failed yourself by not de
  5. Hi everyone! I thought it would be interesting to have an updated discussion on how to be competitive for CaRMS and hopefully match to the specialties we're shooting for. The medical field is constantly changing and I think it would be beneficial to have more updated discussions about how to prepare for CaRMS. We all know that CaRMS can be a stressful time for many. I would like to hear more from others about how to prepare a strong application for CaRMS. This discussion can include anything from research, extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, hobbies), clerkship, electives, LOR, inter
  6. So Mac is 3 years, no summers, plus a bit shorter on the clinical side. I was wondering if it this was a huge disadvantage in terms of getting competitive specialities? For one, we have a lot less time to do some research. Also, no summers might be a disadvantage for travelling to bigger cities (i.e.: Toronto) and meeting with program directors there. Can people chime in on whether or not it's harder to get competitive specialties from McMaster?
