Just What the Doctor Ordered: The Insider’s Guide to Getting into Medical School in Canada

Just What the Doctor Ordered by Christine Fader

In this book, Christine Fader provides her share of extensive experience as a career counsellor for students applying to medical school. She strives to provide the knowledge of the medical school application process in Canadian universities to help students. This book outlines the time and the financial commitment that a future aspiring medical student should be aware of while applying for an M.D in Canada. The author emphasizes on the fact that most students do not get accepted on their first attempt which proves to be one of the biggest challenges faced by them. Eventually, the ones that persevere do succeed. With this book, Christine provides resources that enable students to stand out among a field of highly motivated and accomplished applicants across the country.

"Christine provided great advice about the types of things successful applicants do to stand out. When it came time to apply, Christine helped me fine tune my autobiographical sketch and even provided interview tips." - Dr. Graham Skelhorne-Gross, General Surgery Resident
