Actually Derm is consistently the most competitive residency prog in canada, due to its low number I think only 3 - 4 ppl are accepted each year in CaRMS match. If you look at past several years stats, I recall that Internal Meds it picking up steam, while Gen Sx is losing popularity.7thEye wrote:Wow I would imagine that being a boob doc would be pretty competative, no? Doesn't everyone want to be a surgeon, let alone a plastic surgeon (maybe some people in meds can clairfy).
Just relax and take it one step at a time man...
Anyways, to answer the person original post, there is no exact good program for getting into meds school. Some undergrad programs are more challenging than other, but you still can get good grades out of it. Sometimes these program offer a better prep for the material to be taught in meds school.
Yet, if you are only in first year, one word of caution, NOT EVERYONE GETS INTO MEDS SCHOOL, do have a backup plan. So don't just take all bird courses that does nothing for you, just in case that you don't get in!
