2Nd Iteration Spots


Recommended Posts

I don't know that they're not available so much as the programs didn't want to match them for IMGs. Gen surg in Toronto did something a few years back, and my friend who hadn't matched in the first round got it after essentially all the staff called to advocate for her.

I was a little confused as to why uOttawa had spots for pretty competitive specialties (Anaesthesiology, Derm) left over. So it means they're actually not available? That's strange.

That's what happens when politicians and the university try to force programs to take IMG residents for the sake of political appearances while ignoring the concerns of the program that they can't accommodate another resident without compromising educational quality. The programs go through the song and dance of making an extra spot but never intend to fill it. They just say they couldn't find a suitable candidate.
