    HELP?! studying abroad confusion.

    Advertisements



    Well, in June, I will be graduating from a highschool. and I want to study abroad in order to become a doctor. I'm currently living in Canada, but I still want to be able to come back into Canada. I know this is EXTREMELY hard, but it's possible.

    and that, people are mostly accepted into Canada with medical schools in Ireland and the UK. Is this true? and if so, which medical schools are the best?

    There are a couple of student that I know from Canada, straight from hishschoo, who went to St.Kitts, and All Saints university, what's going to be their process coming back into Canada?

    PLEASE help! thanks

    why????

    what is with all the high schoolers suddenly on this forum wanting to rush through things, taking what they seem to think is a short cut to medicine??


    GO TO COLLEGE
    GET GREAT GRADES
    GO TO MEDICAL SCHOOL IN CANADA (especially if you want to stay and practice in Canada)

    THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU- if you are confident that you can survive med school and do well at 18 -straight out of high school and competing with people who have Bachlor's, Master's, and PhD degrees as well as YEARS of experience in the medical field, then you should be able to excel at College and can get into a Canadian med school...wanna travel abroad- do rotations abroad or travel during your breaks....

    and no, you have no idea how hard this process is...people twice your age have no idea how hard this and are rudely awaken when they are in the mist of it.

    What Rok wrote is the best path to take to get back to Canada. Ireland and the schools in the UK are difficult to get into. They also don't take many foreign students like they use to.

    Each year I scan the residency placements of the island medical schools, Saba and SGU appear to be the only island schools that consistently place students back in Canada. In a good year they maybe place three to five students back there. Not very good odds.

    The other schools are telling you a line to get your money. They do not even have any grads so how do they know they can get back in Canada? They don't. Also no All Saints pre-med students have graduated yet from there medical school. Most fail out or there parents come and get them and take them home. Poorer, sadder but wiser. Their credits are worthless for any other schools. We say this and the school officials there never reply back. AUA has a pre-med program but you need to have completed some college to get in! Medicine is not a profession where you can take short cuts. So don't - it will bite you later on.

    I call it like I see it. I am not paid by ValueMD or any school. Nor do I recruit for any school.
