Okay I'll Ask Some Questions

No one is asking questions! But that is probably because you don't know this blog exists yet, so your lack of participation is forgiven.

I will start by asking questions I know you're wanting to ask...

I am interested in becoming a doctor in Canada.
I'm wondering the process that I need to go through. Do I take an Undergraduate for 4 years and then go to Med school for 4 years? If you could help me I would be very grateful. I know that this may be a site for people with bodily problems but I am very interested in the process that i need to take.

I'll answer here in the comments. (By the way, you can always email me questions--see the link on the right side)

I don't know much about the Canadian system. I trained and practice in the US. It is my understanding that the system there is somewhat similar: 4 years undergrad then 4 years medical school then Residency training which varies depending on what sort of doctor you plan to become.

Your best definitive blogger for Canadian care is Dr. Ottematic. She is a Family Medicine Resident in Canada. Her website is:

Medicine is a long road, but a noble profession despite all its flaws. Only go there if you are certain it is your calling, but if it is you then go for it.

PS: I love questions for students so if you have more feel free to email me.
