Format: Paperback
This book is great! It will answer all of your questions about medical school and becoming a doctor. It reviews the steps that need to be taken to become a doctor. The author has also set up an appendix that gives research for every medical school in Canada. It gives you all of the basics and then some! Highly recommended!

horrible, bad advice, As a doctor in Canada I thought I'd read this for my colleagues and others that continously ask me for advice. This book has BAD advice - such as "pick any degree that interests you in your undergrad"? Really? IN today's competitive world you better darn make sure you have a solid backup like nursing, education, engineering, pharmacy etc.. This book has it all wrong - too much on feelings, and not enough on objective facts. If you are a high school student, university student, etc - don't read this book - becuase you won't know what to trust .. Also its 7 years outdated.. so much has changed.. You can't just write a book based on you're feelings and non-objective advice..

Sorry Anne , just not going to make the cut and taking a risk with students whose future depends on it - this isn't for you.

I agree with this book's claim that it is the only real in-depth resource on applying to medical schools in Canada. Hopefully the author or a colleague will update the information in the coming years.

While providing lots of information on the Canadian med school system, Berdl also writes in-depth about considering why you may or may not want to become a doctor, and what the realities are. This is an important subject and I'm glad she took time to discuss it. Sometimes she makes med school sound daunting, but I think it's better to be forewarned than to enter blindly.

If you are considering applying to medical school in Canada, or just want a better sense of how the system works in Canada, I recommend this book as a strong resource. Amazing that she had time to write it while becoming a doctor herself!

This book is an excellent, reliable, and thorough guide to Canadian medical schools and training programs. It gives would-be applicants to the medical profession a realistic picture of what obstacles and indeed positive experiences they can expect as a trainee. The profession of medicine and the preparation for it are demanding but also extremely rewarding. This book gives readers a fine appreciation of this conflicting experience.

Contains applicable info that wouldn't hurt to know/re-read. I wish there was a newer edition available though as this one is from 2007. The content of the book includes:
Part I:Introduction to Medicine
Part II: Getting in
Part III: Medical School
Part IV: Blood, Sweat, and Tears _ Residency
Part V: English Medical Schools _ West to East (Within Canada only obviously :P)

Amazing book and a great starting place for anyone aspiring to become a physician. Dr. Berndl also makes the process more human and not just about dry info and statistics (which are available at the back of the book). However please do your own research since this book can only guide you in the right direction (it's from 2005 so a bit outdated on the mcat).
