Hi people! How are you doing? I’m in the middle of preparing my CaRMS application. To tell you the truth, I was more enthusiastic about it last year, and by this time last year, I had completed my personal statements and CV. It’s only a few days to the deadline and I’m only still working on my personal statements!! I’m really taking my time this time so I can make them more honest and reflective of my personality.
Anyways, a few days ago, someone asked me for a link to an online forum where he could meet other Candian IMGs and I recommended that he tried rxpgonline.com. At the time, that was the only one that I knew. They have groups for medical graduates from all over the world, and of course, you can find many helpful threads for Canadian IMGS on this forum. I also recently found a Facebook page called IMG study group specifically for Canadian IMGs and another forum called Canadavisa.com for different professionals wanting to come to Canada. There are a few threads there too where IMGs ask some questions.
Fast forward to today… I decided to start an IMG lounge on Facebook!! It’s a closed group and I will be moderating membership. If you’re interested in joining this group, please click HERE. Please, there are a few questions that need to be answered before I can approve membership, and I created them just to determine the genuineness of the request. I’m sorry that I cannot moderate the group appropriately if you don’t respond to them. Other members of the group cannot see your responses. Thank you so much for your understanding!
Please also take note that as per confidentiality agreements that are signed prior to taking any examinations in Canada, you cannot discuss actual material that was assessed in any exam you have taken in the past within the group.
