  1. Hi, I would really appreciate your help and advice. As the title suggests, I am having trouble ranking psych vs FM programs. So far my thoughts are: Psych: Pros: I really enjoy studying Psych and was fascinated during the few psych cases I saw on my primary care rotations. Love taking long detailed histories and having long interactions with patients. Can see myself loving Child and Adolescent psych. Cons: Because of COVID my placements were all virtual/ phone-based, so I did not get a realistic feel and committing to a 5-year program is scary. I am an IMG so I will need to do 5 years of residency PLUS 5 years ROS. Again as I am an IMG, had no exposure to psych in electives. FM: Pros: I found that though FM is very general, you still see a good amount of stable patients with mental health issues. 2 years is amazing! ROS will be shorter - year for year so I'll be done both my residency and ROS in 4 years. Cons: don't like the huge variety of cases, If I were to go into FM I want to mainly see patients with psych issues, idk how achievable that is.. Did an observership with 2 family physicians in Canada, they complained so much about unfair compensation from the government, paperwork, not having as much time with patients because of the paperwork, getting no respect from specialists, nurse practitioners etc. I am already considering things like location and program highlights/ electives. Are there any other factors I should think about before deciding how to rank them? Any advice will be appreciated! My understanding is that money wise both FM and Psych are very similar. Any insight on enhanced skills in Addictions/ or a fellowship in child and adolescent, on how they would affect lifestyle, salary, etc. would be appreciated.
  2. Hello all, With the logistical nightmare of scheduling all our interviews, I thought it would be useful to start an interview trade thread! To start off, I have a Dalhousie Psychiatry Interview on March 11, 2021 and am looking to switch to a later date (any other date works)!
  3. I am a third year medical student partway through their core clinical rotations. I entered this year having absolutely no clue what I might want to do with my career. I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed my psychiatry rotation. It has been the only rotation thus far where I felt I was able to connect with my patients and truly care for them. I think part of my positive experience had to do with the fact that my attending placed a lot of responsibilities on me and gave me a very high degree of independence (for a third year) in managing patients. Also the staff were generally all very happy. Overall, I think I want to do this for the rest of my life. So my question is what can I do in the upcoming months leading up to carms to make myself a reasonably strong candidate for a cdn psych residency? I have to be honest I’ve had a tough go at medical school. Didn’t do much extracurriculars wise (eg no publications or presentations). Had to take some time away from school. However, I am an average student if grades and clinical evals are anything to go off of. So what’s my shot? How do I become better? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks a bunch :)
