Im also Canadian and applying this summer. There is 19 schools that accept Canadian applications, 13 of them will accept you with a C- in any of the pre-reqs. Only 6 of them require a C or higher. That being said, im assuming one C- is fine if your other grades make up for it.Does anyone know any schools that are particularly friendly to Canadian applicants? Are their any schools that allow international students to apply but are really quite tough to gain admission in?
Check out the canadian osteopathic association website. I think BC allows DO to apply for residency spot alongside with canadian medical graduates, while places like ontario will be push into the 2nd round alongside with IMG/FMGs (from carib/ireland/aussie).What about residency back in Canada. Is it easier or harder as a US DO compared to carrib/Ireland/Australia? Can Canadians even get the DO residencies, as opposed to just having to go for the ACGME ones? How many residents are in Canada that have done a DO from the states? I just know of 2 in Ontario but are their any others? Are their any DO specialists in Canada?
I would just like to correct that bolded statement. DOs are part of the CMG stream in OntarioCheck out the canadian osteopathic association website. I think BC allows DO to apply for residency spot alongside with canadian medical graduates, while places like ontario will be push into the 2nd round alongside with IMG/FMGs (from carib/ireland/aussie).
Why can't canadian get into DO residencies? i'm not so sure about this question. If you've made into DO school took the COMLEX, why can't you? Its just thatif you want to come back to canada to work, many provinces may only recognize ACGME residency training.
As far as # of DOs in canada, I can't say, let along specialists. Maybe others can help fill in this question.
Hope it stays this way and gets better in other provinces as wellhttp://www.carms.ca/eng/r1_eligibility_prov_e.shtml#bc
Check out the CaRMS website for more detail in matching's basic/ provincial eligibility. My bad on the ontario thing, Jay's right, Osteo does go into first iteration with CMGs. Details all there
I've been wondering if there was an osteopathic version of the MSAR. YOU ROCK!The CIB should have all this info in it...
Here's the link to the pdf version
