  1. Is the common rate there 40%? Is it a fiercely competitive and saturated market there? I imagine it's not as bad as Toronto or Vancouver. Is it difficult to find good associateships jobs there? How about for surrounding areas (Airdrie, Chestermere, etc)? Thanks
  2. Hello! I am currently a second year medical student and am looking for a summer job. I was wondering which jobs are more suitable/appropriate for med students, if any? Looking for something that partially applies/is related to our degree, so not working at a restaurant or in retail etc. The only thing I can think of is perhaps working at a pharmacy but does anyone have any other ideas? Thanks for your help:)
  3. Hey all, hoping to get some input on being paramedic part-time during premed. I have a few friend who are paramedics and it seems like natural stepping stone for medical school. So my question is, it this job a good option? And would this look better on Medical school applications than any other job? Since the paramedic degree is offered in night school I'm pretty sure I can get it done in 4 months max. I need to be making some money during undergrad anyways right? (EMT also an option) Thanks in advance for any input Victor
  4. Hey guys! I noticed that a lot of Canadian students are dissatisfied about the range of relevant and paid clinical experience opportunities that are available to non-Nursing students. As you may or may not know, Nursing students can often be hired as Personal Support Workers, although I hear that this is getting harder and harder to find. I, for myself, work as clinical staff at a complex care hospital, but I worked really hard to get to this job and I wanted to share some jobs that are open to students looking for paid clinical experience. Now, my job has evolved from a Dietary Aide position to a role more akin to a Nursing Aide, but I would just like to reiterate that, as students, WE CANNOT ASSIST WITH PRIMARY/MAJOR PROCEDURES SUCH AS INTUBATIONS, CAUTERIZATIONS, AND SUCH, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT CERTIFIED YET. PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT TO BECOME, AS CANADIANS, PHLEBOTOMISTS, OR SURGICAL TECHS WITHOUT CERTIFICATIONS (which may take at least 6 months of full-time studies to obtain). That being said, jobs for students pursuing pretty much any Bachelor's, but specifically biology (biomedical, biopharmaceutical, biology, biochemistry, etc.), health sciences (kinesiology, nutrition, health sciences, gerontology, etc.), along with obviously nursing students, are often found in health centres that do not provide Intensive/Emergency care. Stating that you are a pre-med/PA/PT/OT/nursing student during interviews actually does help, as they will be more willing to show you stuff such as procedures and reasoning behind treatments, as well as even introducing you to healthcare professionals. Therefore, you will find positions at complex care hospitals (palliative, long-term care, rehabilitation, etc.), medically oriented nursing homes, generic nursing homes, and palliative care centres. Examples of titles of positions that have offered me employment/interviewed me as a student: activity aide (nursing homes), recreation aide (nursing homes), dietary aide (nursing homes, hospitals), activation aide (nursing homes), patient porter (hospitals). I also hear of students starting out as receptionists/clerks/housekeepers at a nursing home and get offered training as PSWs by their nursing home. A paid clinical role not only pays your bills, but also shows professional school committees that you are no longer a passive assistance staff, but that you have had direct patient care experience (and believe me, your experience will definitely be direct rather than passive volunteer work). There is definitely a change in mentality when you are staff, and a huge load of responsibility is placed on your shoulders, which is really rewarding. I would just like to reiterate that you should not look for work in beautiful, glamorous centres, but rather go to facilities where they need staff and that may be a little bit more rundown: go where you are needed rather than where you want to end up. You are a student, you are at the bottom, and you should adopt that mentality. I started out as a volunteer in the geriatric rehabilitation program of my hospital and worked hard to get a recommendation (started volunteering in September, got hired as clinical staff in may). I hope this helps someone somehow!
  5. Hi there, I'm a student in my undergraduate studies looking to work in healthcare. The role of PA really stood out to me as it looks to be a great balance between working in medicine but also having the opportunity to have life commitments outside of it. I've been doing some digging regarding potential jobs as a PA however and I'm a bit worried as it seems most jobs only have enough funding for a year or so and are temporary. Would I have re-locate every couple of years for work here in Ontario or are full-time permanent positions also common? Is this a good career to consider at this point and time when funding can be difficult to find? The older post from 2016 had quite a few unhappy PAs commenting and had said they wished they would have applied to a different program because they couldn't find work and that jobs were extremely competitive. Is the government doing anything for the new PA grads? Any insight would be great, thanks!
  6. Hey everyone, I have a couple questions about general surgery (ideally in Canada, specifically quebec and ontario, but open to all info) If I go into general surgery, I would want to remail general. If I do not specialize, can i still remain in big city or am I more pushed to be in a community? If I work in a community, do I have to live in that community or can I live an hour away? i.e. on call, can I say okay I'll be there in an hour? Any information on hours per week and schedule/vacation is greatly appreciated as well. Thanks!!
