dlformiga1 Posted June 4, 2010 Report Share Posted June 4, 2010 Hello everyone, I am a Canadian citizen in my final year of medicine in the UK. I am in the process of setting up electives back home, with a plan to eventually return to Canada after my intern year here in the UK. I have heard horror stories from previous Canadian students who have gone back to Canada for electives. The main message from them seems to be that the Canadian students are at a far more advanced stage than the equivalent students here. This is completely possible, as I have realized that education here is quite inferior -- patient contact is limited, teaching from supervising clinicians is almost non-existent, and let's not even start on lack of practical skills. So my questions is, how did other Canadians who have been through this approach this problem? Were the Canadian students really that much better? How were you able to perform to a high enough level to obtain the all important LOR's? Any suggestions on which universities are better, for an IMG, to do electives in? I would greatly appreciate any input on this. I am a hard worker, and any advice now on how I could prepare myself would be great, as I would get started on it ASAP.
