North Bay- NOSM- Family
Do you feel that your choice of electives had any impact on your CaRMS match? If yes, please give a brief description?
Yes- did a month in North Bay, wouldn’t of got it without that.
Exchange in portugal (fun but medically worthless), Trained and raced
Make your letters sparkle, and get the best possible letters for LORs (best written)
What was the most valuable lesson or experience you had while going through the match process? Can you describe this?
Literally no one on the other end really knows what’s going on. They’re just as lost as us.
What did you do in your four years of medical school that you found to be the most helpful during the CaRMS process?
Couples match and when you travel do it with some friends. Hit up spas/saunas, waterslides, etc. Don’t jam pack your interviews, space them out and enjoy the cities with your best friends or significant other. This is then a vacation rather than a stressor, AND you’re way more interesting in small talk than others.
