  2. I'm currently a preclerk med student wanting to go into family medicine and looking for advice from upper years/residents on how they have found the FM programs at different schools across Canada for a comparison. Looking specifically to know how competitive, intense, innovative the programs are and what kinds of opportunities are offered. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  3. I have really enjoyed my Peds rotation as well as IM rotation and their ambulatory options and can see myself enjoy doing either of them as a career. So I was thinking of taking electives in both in order apply to both. Anyone got any thoughts on this? Is it a good idea? You or anyone you know has done this? Would it reduce my chances of getting accepted if Carms Committees see that I have taken both electives?

  5. Hello folks: I'll be starting M-1 this Fall at the UofA (Hooray). The faculty offers the option of doing a series of Summer electives in addition to the required elective courses. In this regard I would like to do some electives in Canada during the summer, but I have also been toying with the idea of doing a summer elective abroad, likely in the US or Europe. The process for signing up for Electives in-house, at least in the University of Alberta, seems fairly straight-forward but I'm kind of unsure how to try and snag electives in other locations in Canada or foreign electives in general. Are there additional fees incurred with Canadian/foreign electives apart from travel and lodging (I would assume so)? What is the application process? Is there any specific locations in the States or Europe that are friendlier to Canadians? How is the immigration paperwork for Canadian Citizens (I'm assuming at least in the US and UK, the process should be fairly straight forward)? I'm sort of at a loss on where to start looking or what to do first. Thanks in advance for the advice <Apologies for any typos.>
  6. I recently got exposed to physiatry (physical medicine and rehabilitation) and am interested in pursuing it. However, given that it is such a small specialty (and pretty competitive in recent years), I am not sure if I'd feel comfortable just gunning for it with no backups. As such, I have some questions about the elective strategy for CaRMS: 1. How many weeks of electives does one need to do in physiatry to be competitive? From past posts, it seems that 4 weeks is the bare minimum (2 reference letters), but I am wondering if this threshold has increased due to the increasing competitiveness of the specialty. 2. If one does 10 weeks of neurology and 6 weeks of physical medicine (or even a 12/4 split between neurology and physiatry), would this be seen as using physiatry as a "backup" and therefore looked upon less favorably? 3. What are some specialties that an applicant can realistically apply to in conjunction with physiatry? Some combinations that I can think of include neurology/physiatry, internal/physiatry, family/physiatry. 4. If one were to "gun" for physiatry, should one do all of the electives in physiatry? Or should one dedicate several weeks to neurology, internal medicine, orthopedics, etc.? Thanks in advance!
  7. Using the AFMC portal for electives is definitely a learning curve. There are some great YouTube videos I have found to explain some of the processes. Does anyone have some sort of guide they used, perhaps from upper years about specific schools? Something like: "For U of C, you have to contact this email directly before you apply on the portal" etc Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  8. I'm a third year starting to look into the AFMC portal and applying for electives. I'm interested in Emergency and primarily applying for Emerg electives across the country. Can anyone comment on how competitive it is to obtain electives? I've heard of people with strategies where they apply every 2 weeks at the first minute the it opens up, spending $$$ on the same elective because they're applying for different times. Is this a necessary way of securing electives, or do people wait for, say 4 or 6 weeks to pass, then apply for a broader range of times? Thanks for your input!
  9. Any elective advice for someone who is looking to match family med at McMaster (or somewhere in Southern Ontario)? I've heard it's good to be diverse, but maybe some electives are better than others? Thanks in advance!
