Has anyone taken the Canadian AP boards? Please, share your experience. I'm taking the US AP/CP this June and have already applied for the Canadian AP in spring 2011. I'm wondering how different they are.
I applied for 2011, but anatomical only. Why did you choose general path boards? From what I've heard it's somewhat inferior in comparison with anatomical ones. Also, I have no desire to review chemistry and micro again. Sure, I will share all info I posses - my Canadian buddy is taking general path this May. He promised some remembrances, which will be much more useful for you than for me.
I'm an FMG who ended up in the US residency by sheer chance but never intended to settle in the US. I've acquired a Canadian PR and am moving to Canada after the fellowship.Why r u taking the Canadian Boards? Are u Canadians in training in the US and intend to go to Canada when finish? Just curious to know.
The exam is totally different from the US one. There are oral section, and written section. No multiple choice questions. Read the description of the exam on the Royal College web site.
I read the official info on RC web site long ago and don't have any problems with oral test or "short essay" answers - my medschool had it all. I am curious if passing the American boards helps to succeed on the RC exam and hope to hear some opinions this June (as promised by a forum member). I have a Canadian friend, who has the entire collection of remembrances but he is GP, not AP.
