You're (Un)Welcome

Hey, Alma Mater!!! Where is the love??

Thanks. For. Nothing.

Nonsense. Contact a preceptor directly, and get them to accept you, THEN go to the school and tell them you've already been accepted.

Apparently you need a 'visiting student ID number' or something to be covered legally.

And now they will not grant them to international students anymore.

This whole 'medical pariah' vibe for being a Canadian IMG is really really starting to get to me.

I'm thinking this is another sign for you and Tobie to come to the US.

The folks who wrote/approved that content are seriously lacking in social skills. I have to hand it to them for not even pretending to be nice

Who grants the visiting student ID -- is it the program? If so, maybe smaller programs in less desirable areas would be happier to grant one.

Some of my foreign-trained upper year residents have left the U.S. trained ones in their dust. I'd be much less knowledgeable now if I had missed out on working with them.

Anyone with a tenth of a brain would be happy to have you.

Ugh. What a bunch of See You Next Tuesdays.

And people wonder why there's such a brain drain here, when people who are training abroad (costing us taxpayers nothing) who WANT to come back, are being pretty much barred at the door.
