5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Feb. 4 2009
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best you can do in Canada April 4 2010
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource July 7 2010
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Read March 12 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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)
