  1. I’m trying to pick an undergraduate program that will help me get a high gpa and research opportunities while leaving adequate time for extracurriculars and volunteer experience so that I can apply to medical school. of the program listed, which ones will give me all of those things and please let me know if you’ve heard anything good or bad about them. thanks!
  2. Like the title says, will psych research be preferable on a med app if I'm genuinely interested in it as opposed to biomedical research that I would otherwise be doing to check a box? Thank you in advance!
  3. Hi, I was fortunate to be included on a publication recently, and was hoping to talk about it on my application. The thing is, there are two co-first authors, and then my name comes next. Does that make me a second or third author? If it's considered 2nd, I could include it under "Research and Publications," as opposed to the other NAQ categories. I've already asked UBC about this, and they said that it's ultimately up to myself to decide. I'm hoping to get some feedback about this topic because I'm not very familiar with the world of academic research, thanks in advance.
  4. Hi everyone I am a grade 11 student in Alberta and I was wondering if there are any research opportunities I can take before I enter undergraduate studies. My desired university is the University of Alberta. Additionally, it would be very helpful if you guys could share any research or health related extracurriculars you guys did in high school. Thanks!
  5. Hi everyone I was wondering how competitive it is to get into the research opportunities at the University of Alberta during my undergraduate degree. Thanks!
  6. Hi guys, I am very new to this community, so sorry if this question has been asked before. I saw in many of your posts that students have publications (as leading or 2nd, 3rd authors) and conference papers which is really amazing. I wonder if anyone can provide some insights on how can undergrad get their research published. (i.e. is the published work done in summer or you have to stick to a project longer). Thank you so much in advance!!
  7. Hello, I was wondering how important it is to do a thesis in my senior year of undergrad (my program doesn't require it for graduation). I have no research experience and I am going into my 4th year this fall. Would it be better for me to start looking for volunteer positions in labs and then do a small independent study rather than doing a thesis? I'm also very discouraged at this point to find a supervisor as it is fairly late in the year. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thank you!!
  8. Hi everyone! After 3 years of applying to med schools, I was finally fortunate enough to receive an offer this year! I am looking for someone to take over my current research assistant position in Diabetes and Endocrinology at BC Children's Hospital. I'm so grateful to have had this opportunity over the past 2 years and the experience really added to my application. I have had the chance to work in a clinical setting alongside other healthcare professionals, and interact directly with patients on a daily basis. I've also been able to make really good connections and references. For anyon
  9. APPLYING TO: U of C, U of A (and wherever else I meet the requirements) Forgive me for sounding clueless (I am). I’m a second year NESA (bachelor of nursing) student through the University of Lethbridge. I started clinicals in the hospital this year and the more I worked around doctors and surgeons, the more I realized how much more attracted to medicine I was than nursing. I started researching med and realized it wasn’t AS daunting as I always believed it to be, and now I have decided to *attempt* to get in to med school. My first year GPA was 3.78, my second year GPA is not as importan
  10. Hey there, as a future Pre-Med student I am aware extracurriculars are very important. But what exactly counts/looks good on your application? I'm no stranger to volunteering as I have volunteered at numerous shelters, hospitals, etc. But are medical schools looking for something "extraordinary" or are my casual weekly involvments in the hospitals/non-profit organizations enough... do I need to show leadership and actually manage, lead, or win an award/get an LOR in something lol. If possible, list down some ECs that you have done/enjoyed to give me a little idea on what options are out there!
  11. What exactly do first and second year students generally have on their resume/CV when applying for such programs? As they generally tend to have minimal work or lab experiences, but they just put their ECs? Moreover, how much of the likelihood of finding a position is based off your GPA. Would I have to maintain my GPA and ECs the way that they are to would I have to add something else into the mix?
  12. I'm an anthropology major, and have no publications as of yet (hopefully soon but I'm not counting on it for next years application cycle). But I do have a fair amount of research and field experience in biological anthro (data collection, excavation, forensic recovery of human remains). Will this be viewed by adcoms the same as if it were, microbio research or something? Is all research viewed similarly or should I seek opportunities in, for example, my university's cancer cell lab?
  13. Hey guys, I am a fourth year, finishing up a molecular biology specialist with a chem minor. I will be taking a gap year next year to apply for med school, and wanted to work full time in a research lab (wet lab preferably) in any downtown Toronto hospital for a full one year. I emailed a bunch of PI's past few weeks (google search) but none of them have responded, so I was wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I have a bunch of research experience/academic achievements under my belt, NSERC, thesis, etc. Am I just applying way too early (available to start working June 2019) or are mos
  14. Hey guys, I'm going into my 2nd yr of mac health sci this sept and really want to secure a research position for the school year. I know this isnt prime time for contacting researchers and most of the replies I've gotten have said their lab is full, but do y'all have any specific advice regarding how to land a research position ? In the emails I have sent so far, I've included a reference letter from my 1st yr psychobio TA, CV and transcript. And I've kept the content of the emails short and sweet, as well as personalized to the prof's research/publications. I'm not sure if I'm doing any
  15. Hello everyone.I would very much like to get some opinions on the matter of taking a research year during medical school.I am a current first year medical student in the US (but a Canadian citizen-graduated from Mac) and I am currently continuing doing research from my Masters project along with my first year classes. I am finding it quite difficult to manage time between both commitments and fear it may get worse into the fall where the course load at my institution is higher.I completed my Masters in Biochemistry (bioinformatics specifically) and was writing an algorithm for a publication wh
  16. Hey!! I'm currently trying to set a goal of reading at least 3 new research articles a week, just to improve my understanding of various topics and research methodology. Do people wanna form a group to discuss articles so can learn more ? We could maybe set a time for 1 or 2 times a week over Skype! If you're interested, reply below or DM me!
  17. For a university such as UofT which prefers its MD applicants to have research experience, do you think having publications can "make up" for a lower wGPA such as 3.88? I'm worried that I will not be invited for interviews due to my low marks but I have a lot of experience in research and in my opinion, good ECs. Thanks in advance!
  18. Hey everyone, Just looking for some advice from upper year med students/residents. I'm in my second year of medical school, and did research last summer (a summer studentship) that resulted in publication of an abstract in a good quality journal and a poster presentation at a national conference (and a travel grant). I'm currently potentially interested in either internal medicine or family medicine. I was wondering how important it is to do research over this summer? (I also have some research experience from undergrad- I volunteered in a lab in third year and did a thesis in 4th year wh
  19. Hi! I am currently in the process of applying for an NSERC, and have also just recently interviewed for medical school. The interview went really well, but I am afraid that I won't be allow to undergo the NSERC if I am accepted to medical school since I would be registered for a professional program... Anyone have a similar experience, or can point me in the right direction based on who I should contact?
  20. I'm aware that NSERC USRA strongly looks at the students' GPA and what year they're in, but are they also looking for students who aren't from a complete science department? I'm double majoring in Biology and Visual Arts and I'm currently in first year. My first semester grade is a around a 3.3 GPA which isn't very high, so does NSERC USRA only look at your first semester grades?
  21. Hi guys, I'm new poster and I tried to search this up and couldn't find any answers- I apologize if this is repeated somewhere! Now, I have a course-based masters but I will end up having publications (1 first author minimum). I'm confused because I read that UofT treats thesis masters students differently by assessing them in their own graduate stream and their CV is assessed. I am definitely going to be applying to UofT next cycle with like a 0.0001% chance of getting in because of my very very very very low wgpa. I just wanted to know if the 3.0 minimum gpa (I know it's not
  22. I'm interested in applying for the NSERC USRA program at a few universities (UofWaterloo,Queens, etc..), but I'm just not sure about how students get paid? I'm sure it depends on the university you go to, but the schools I'm applying to aren't my institution so I have to think about living expenses and I'm confused about how they distribute the award. I'm new to this forum and I tried reading on their website, but I still don't understand the financial part, so thank you to those who can answer my question.
  23. Quick questions about research section of ABS: I worked on a research paper for a course and received a mark for that assignment. the professor was impressed with my work and wanted to publish with me, so we are currently working on editing and revising my paper (major revisions) to submit to a journal. This is being done outside of school time. Can I include this? I worked as a research analyst and wrote a couple of opinion pieces (backed by a lot of research) that were published on my employer's website. Can I include this? Thank you!
  24. Hey guys! I am just curious, when do most people start getting research experience? I am going into my second year, and I haven't started volunteering in a lab yet, but I'm really interested in doing that, eventually. I already have a bunch of extracurricular activities lined up, so I'm not sure how beneficial it would be for me to get involved during the school year, but I'm worried that I won't be able to get a good lab or hospital research position in the upcoming summer if I don't have prior experience? Thanks so much for your help! * Sorry - I posted this same question under gener
