I don't know what you're asking exactly here. But like others and I said before, all Canadian med schools are pretty on par with each other. It's up to you to make your medical education ideal. You are the one that can choose to do electives whereever you want, or in whatever field you want. You are the one that can go overseas and get experience from other countries. You are the one that can take part in great research opportunities.

Also to note, U of T is quite research orientated. If you want to be a doctor who is quite interested in research as well, well then U of T would be good for you. It's all about finding the right fit.

lol someone said it in another post....but unless your really "smart" (and partly lucky) a lot of students don't get to pick which school they go to. The school picks them and you basically take it and smile. I only got one acceptance, and I am happy as hell.

That's the problem when supply (medical spots) so obviously outstrips demand. It shouldn't be that way... I encourage you to look at medical schools in Canada, U.S., U.K. and Ireland, and Australia. Admittedly, most people's top 2 criteria are 1) location and 2) financial so that may preclude you from choosing anything OTHER than a medical education in Canada. But in the countries listed above, the basic bones of the education is the same. It comes down to what you make it after that, and the individual indiosyncracies of each place (both good and bad) that you dig up on your due diligence.

So, in other words, the northern medical school already de facto rivals the other medical schools in Canada. The basic education is the same, and if your aim is to practice in a beautiful location where it stands to reason your skills in rural medicine and family practice are going to be phenomenal along with a unique understanding of the relevant issues in Northern Ontario, than right now it is the best medical school in Canada!

Also, I would add that it is not necessary to limit yourself to U of T if research is your thing. Nearly all medical schools are associated with robust research programs, and you would do well to familiarize yourself with what you are interested in research wise, and let that guide you towards which place to apply. Just because you're at U of T doesn't mean you'll have a better research angle if your area of interest is something that the University of Alberta, for instance, houses the world expert.


Good luck
