Really Confused and looking for some opinions. I am a Canadians exploring the out of country options for medical school with the goal of coming back to Canada. I am looking for primary care or internal med so nothing too fancy. However, I want to make sure that I have the least risk because all the schools have a large financial commitment. I have been accepted to SGU, an Irish medical school and a DO School(expensive for out of state applicants). Now I know many feel that staying in the USA is good for American students but as a Canadian what are some thoughts? Anyone had the same situation?

Thank you
