A podcast about life in clerkship and all of the things that come with it.
S2 Episode 11: This Residency Life
This episode marks the first day of residency for the 2020 graduating class and the last episode of the season. After this episode, the show will officially transition to a new group of medical students with new stories to tell. But before we go, we thought it would be meaningful to dedicate this last episode to residency. In the first part, we caught up with (Doctor!) Sabina Freiman, who we first met in the Going Unmatched episode. In part two, we invited the original hosts of the show and now PGY3s, Jon Cluett and Trevor Morey, to catch us up on their lives as residents.
A few things we mentioned in this episode:
1) Medical influencers: healthydebate.ca/opinions/medical-influencers-on-social-media
2) Burnout Syndrome (ICD-11): who.int/mental_health/evidence/burn-out/en/
3) Trevor’s in a metal band called Heartless: hyperurl.co/9a1o8e?fbclid=IwAR38DPFLyphOxTFt3yAvzz3Ay5noEfhpjeAc0nySC2Li2P1Emo48x2X4swA
4) Follow Jon’s favourite orange cat on Instagram @the_cat_named_carrot

S2 Episode 9: Going Unmatched
Meet Sujen, Tyee, Sabina, and Vlad, four medical students from the University of Toronto who went unmatched in 2019. Listen to their stories and hear their advice about the unmatched process. If you have a comment for the show or a story of your own to tell, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, take a look at these:
1. Lauren Vogel wrote an article in 2017 reviewing the status of unmatched medical students in Canada. Check it out here: cmaj.ca/content/189/21/E758
2. Dr. Horton discusses CaRMS interviews and ranking strategies on this CMAJ podcast episode. I bring it up because she specifically comments on the so-called “match and switch” strategy that Sabina mentions at the end of our episode: soundcloud.com/cmajpodcasts/horton-carms-interview
3. Corey Stanton from the University of Ottawa put together a short documentary of the CaRMS process called “The Match”, I recommend checking it out: vimeo.com/222682284

S2 Episode 7: Clinic, Clerkship & CaRMS with Dr. Erin Beattie
Check out our conversation with Dr. Erin Beattie, a family doc at the Queen’s Family Health Team, Career Advisor, and Clinical Skills Tutor.
We discuss her path toward medicine and her career progression. She shares some of the joys and challenges of life in and outside medicine and how to navigate both. We think her honest and heartfelt advice will resonate with new and senior medical students alike.
We strongly recommend you look up Brené Brown who was mentioned in the show. Consider starting with her TED Talk on the power of vulnerability: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCvmsMzlF7o
