    Basic Questions

    Advertisements



    I am a Canadian student coming to the 6MD program here at PUMS. A Canadian medical school was obviously my first choice, but given some circumstances, I was left with a lower tier option. Now my goal is to secure a residency spot in surgery either in New York or somewhere in Ontario.

    My issue lies in USCE which is something I have to set up on my own, and that too only for the allowed 12 weeks of electives as I am a Canadian. Are these 12 weeks are enough to get solid LORs to obtain a surgical residency. Also, from what I have heard, the 6MD program allots the final 3 years for clinicals which makes it seem very different and odd compared to some other 6 year programs. So does that mean that 6MD is not looked at the same way as 4MD when it comes time for being matched in a residency.

    Another question I had was regarding the cost at the time of clinicals. Online it shows about 56,000 PLN a year which I am guessing is for the basic sciences years only. Is that the same for the clinical years or is it more especially given that I will be looking to do the electives in the US.

    Otherwise I was looking into Lublin and Silesia which being affiliated through Hope Medical Institution allows you core and elective clinicals in the states. That was extremely impressive, but then I heard a lot of horror stories about the school itself along with Hope Medical Institution.

    I would really appreciate all the help I can get.
