  1. I did my degree in electrical engineering a few years back and graduated top of my class. I have gone into my industry, but I am deciding that I need a career change. I would love to go to med school but unlike those who have been prepping to become doctors since before university, I have not been playing the long term preparation game. I don't have an as extensive EC CV as most pre-med students, and I am missing a few courses I need to even be eligible to apply. I know the first step would be to return to school to get the necessary credits, but that is not something I want to do if there is no hope in me getting into med school in the first place with my background. Any advice on what steps I should take to make myself eligible at this point? Also as an aside question, and excuse me if this is a dumb one, but I know I do not posses the necessary motor skills to do surgery (I have a medical condition that gives me minor tremors, nothing too big or serious, but I would not trust me with a scalpel), will that automatically disqualify me as well? Will I have to do a rotation in surgery no matter what if I ever do get in?
  2. About me: I am 30 years old, have Masters(thesis based) in engineering from India. I had been working for the past 5 years as a Web Developer. I recently moved to Canada (Toronto) as a permanent resident. TL;DR: If I want to apply to med school, how can I go about it? I do not have the pre-reqs (as I did my undergrad and graduation in engineering) or any extra-curricular. I have always loved biology and now want to pursue my interest in that field. It has been 10 years on-off since I have been thinking of switching my field but always got lost in the current situations of education, work and life. Possible path: I am considering doing an undergrad in the field of biology, as I am not too sure about med school at this point. I do not want to make another career switch without being completely sure about it. I am partially eligible to apply to med school right now since I have a Masters, provided I do the pre-reqs 'somehow'. I want to keep my options open in case I want to do something in the field of Biology other than med school (or in case I do not get through med school). I am have done research only with regards to University of Toronto and University of British Columbia's criteria for MD program as of now. I would appreciate anyone who can provide me with inputs. My main concerns at this point is: I plan to align my courses for the first year (undergrad) in such a manner that I complete the pre-reqs for med school in first year, in case I become sure of going to a med school at the end of first year. If I plan to discontinue the undergrad program, will the courses completed count towards my pre-reqs? Does university give credits for the courses completed if a student drops/withdraws from the program? Can I drop the undergraduate program and go to a med school (if accepted) considering I did my pre-reqs in first year of undergrad, do medical schools consider this as valid pre-reqs? If not, would I have to drop college and do pre-reqs as post-bacc or non-degree studies for another year? I also found that some med schools do no have this requirement of pre-reqs, can you please tell me if targeting those would be a better choice? Is there significant difference in the quality of education compared to UofT or UBC? Thank you so much for reading it all I would appreciate any help or suggestions!
  3. Bonjour, je sais que les programmes de génie offrent de bonnes CRU à l'UdeM, mais j'ai cru qu'il serait intéressant de créer une sorte d'étalon, spécifique au génie. Donc, étudiant(e)s en génie (ou ex), veuillez svp publier votre GPA, votre CRU calculée par l'UdeM, et votre université. Merci!!
  4. Hello everyone, it's my first time posting on this forum. I'm currently enrolled in engineering at Ryerson University, but am on medical withdrawal. I have completed two full years at Ryerson but since September of 2017 I have been dealing with a chronic illness that has not allowed me to return. I originally planned to pursue either medicine or pharmacy but couldn't afford med school so opted to go for engineering as I have always been interested in the sciences. I've fallen in love with medicine again in this two year span and I feel miserable in my engineering program. I've had a long time to consider my options and I'm doing a little better financially but I don't know where to go from here. Should I transfer? Complete my degree? Start a new undergraduate? I'm not too sure if GPA is carried over to new schools. My GPA is currently 3.0 if that helps at all. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. I just want to know where my options lie.
  5. I recently finished my bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at the University of Waterloo and am now working on my master’s degree in the same discipline. I am looking to apply to medical schools in Ontario for 2020 entry and have signed up to write the MCAT on September 19 this year. It’s pretty lonely being a prospective medical student in engineering grad school so I was wondering if there is anyone else in the same boat. If there’s anyone in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, that would be even better.
  6. I am an electrical engineer with seveteen years of power sytem design experience and currently employed as an electrical engineer in USA. I am a Canadian with international education in electrical engineering. My major was power and my experience is all about working with substation design and engineering. I had a very rewarding career throughout my academics as well as through employers. I was 1st class 1st position holder (93% marks) in engineering, gold medal for presenting my final year work, several other awards. I passed my engineering in Sep-1999 and then started my engineering career in Jan-2000 and was named best employee of the year for 2001 and 2002 consecutively. I moved to Canada in 2006 and then got several awards with different engineering employers. Now, I have decided to change my profession and want to go to med school and wish to be a doctor. I don't know how hard it is to get in my foot but need someone to advise me what should be the first step towards that. Also, someone to give me an honest opinion that would it be impossible at the age of 43 to make this transition (considering age and process of med school). Please mention what and how should i proceed for this goal.
