Hey fellow premed101 users, I’m currently a second year med student and have discovered my love for neurology! I love doing the neuro exam and working neuro patients up and the consultant work is always very interesting! I have my heart set on either an adult or Pediatric neurology residency, however I’m also very anxious about matching and unfortunately most provincial governments seem to be pushing family medicine and not specialty programs so it might be even harder to match by the time I go through Carms. I was wondering what I can do to increase my chances other then the run of the mill research/electives/good letters? Would a MSc be very beneficial (in neuro)? For reference, I’m bilingual so I was planning on applying broadly to all the adult neuro + child neuro programs (around 22 programs in total). Would this be sufficient or should I back up with another program in addition? I don’t really enjoy any other programs, other then maybe psych through which I could do neuropsych? But then again psych is quite competitive too… I was also wondering if there would be any way to be strategic with my electives to increase my chances. I’m flexible on location, so maybe I can focus on doing electives in areas/programs that in the past had leftover spots - since if I get ranked highly by them I have a great shot? I would also love to chat with à neuro resident/attending if any frequent premed101! -An anxious M2
Hi, Does anyone know definitively how UofT Dental determines your province resident status (IP vs OOP)? Do they use an OHIP card (or other official means) or do they base it on your listed address for your application? Based on searching through these forums, it sounds like people are saying that those with an Ontario address are listed as IP (in province resident). If this was the only determinant, wouldn't it be easy to list a family member's or friend's address (whom you visit once or more a year) for your application even though you spend most of your time in another province? It just seems a little wishy-washy. Thanks, M
