  1. I think it will be very useful for medical students have a centralised thread where current residents and physicians about what to expect in their specialites. medical specialty: Province and is the below info location dependant? Typical income after overhead for your specialty: Typical work hours/week (clinical+other) for your specialty: Call?: The very good: The good: The bad: The ugly: Will you do it again? Bonus info:
  2. Hello, I am a medical student in a Canadian school and was wondering if anyone knew anything about or could point me towards some resources on what would happen and what I should consider if instead of doing my residency in Canada I go to the UK to do so. I ask because I have family there that I might need to take care of and want to decide my best course of action. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
  3. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  4. Just launched. Roommate search FACEBOOK page for the medical community Post what you are looking for on www.Medshousing.com new FB Roommate page
  5. 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
  6. The FMRQ publishes their salary scale at http://www.fmrq.qc.ca/en/working-conditions/salary-scales, so I understand that resident salaries currently range from $44,552 for an R1 to $72,841 for an R8, for those who actually hit R8. I'm looking for some information about what a medical resident in Quebec can realistically expect to earn in the real world. 1) Call and teaching premiums ($565 and $223): I assume that these amounts are monthly (?) -- How often would your average resident qualify for these? If you got it every month, it could add $9,456 a year to your salary. Add to that the potential Assistant chief resident and Chief resident responsibility supplements ($396 and $543), which I assume are brief stints at the end of training, and it could make a big difference. 2) Fees: Are there any major expenses associated with training (tuition?) that a resident can expect to pay? 3) Tax: Aside from any leftover tuition tax credits from medical school that are carried forward, are there any major deductions for being a medical resident, or does a resident pay similar amounts of income tax to a normal working individual with a similar salary? 4) Government loans: As far as the Quebec Government Aide financière aux études program is concerned, does a resident maintain "full time student" status, or does a new resident have to start paying back their government loans as soon as the grace period is over (or, as most people do, just pay off the government loan with their bank line of credit)? 5) New collective agreement: Does anyone know if a new FMRQ collective agreement with changes to the salary scale is expected any time soon? 6) Any other bonuses or expenses specific to residents that I'm not thinking of? So, basically, at the end of the day, what can your average Quebec resident (say, R1, or in any other year for that matter) actually expect to clear at the end of the year? Thanks!
  7. Hey everyone. I am a fam med resident and am looking into some high-yield extra training to do before I graduate. In a perfect world, it could be done online, is inexpensive and provides a certification at the end that I can put on the CV but any recommendations that meet all, any or none of these would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if this has been asked before but new courses are popping up all the time. Thanks!
  8. Any other Yukoner med-school hopefuls out there? A bit about me: Live in Dawson City (and have for 20 years) Have applied to MUN, USask, NOSM, Queens, and Ottawa Interviews offered: MUN (done!), USASK and NOSM Previous Applications: applied to NOSM last year and was wait-listed Really curious to see how many other Yukon applicants for the MUN seat this year !
  9. I'm currently in 3rd year at York University. I am an honours psyc majors. My first year GPA= 2.67, my 2nd year GPA = 3.87 (I went through some very tough times during first year due to personal issues, hence the subpar GPA). I suspect my 3rd and 4th year GPAs would also be around 3.85-3.9, however. Being in ontario sucks, all the schools here get around 2000-4000 applicants and they accept between 2.5%-5%, and that's from all provinces. On the other hand, out of prince medical schools such as McGill, Dalhousie, Calgary, Alberta, Manitoba, UBC, etc all place heavy preference on applicants from their own province.. With my terrible first year GPA, residence in Ontario, and such competitiveness, I do not see myself going anywhere unless I do something about. I'm thinking of transfering to McGill (or any other out of province uni) so that I can apply to McGill's Medical School as a Quebec resident (or any other out of province uni as a resident). This would increase my chances exponentially. Should I transfer? I can definitely maintain a 3.85+ GPA for my 3rd/4th year but even with that, my first year GPA is terrible, and I was not taking full course-load so, no, UofT will not drop the 6 lowest marks. Also, will being a transfer at McGill undermine my application to their medical school?
