What to do as a med school graduate in Toronto?
I graduated from med school as an IMG last summer and applied for the 2013 match. Unfortunately I did not get a residency spot and I will be spending another year in Toronto. I guess the most important thing for me to do is to keep in touch with medicine somehow for the next few months until I apply again and I can add that to my CV. I've spoken to some people and they all suggested that I should try to get an externship. However, it seems really hard to get an externship here in Toronto. Is an externship the only answer or could I just get into anything in Toronto that involves interacting with patients and keeping in touch with clinical skills? Wouldn't that be sufficient? Thanks in advance.
