  • Canadian Forces Medical Assistant?

    Hi there, I'm thinking of enlisting in the Canadian Forces as a Medical Assistant with the Reserves. A general list of duties is given on the website, like helping give vision tests and different things like that, but was wondering if anybody could give a bit more detail about what duties would include. Would duties ever extend into a civilian hospital, or would you ever assist in the OR?

    And I know that deployment is voluntary, and have already decided that if it was to be a deployment for combat I wouldn't go, but would go in a heartbeat if it was a humanitarian mission. And is there any room for growth in the role, like I know Medical Technicians can specialize in the OR or in an administrative role, is there similar room for specialization as a Medical Assistant? And does anybody have experiences in the role?

    Thanks a lot

  • Becoming a surgeon with one eye?

    Hi there, I wanted to ask your opinions on becoming a surgeon if you have one eye. I have both eyes, but am blind in one of them, and have been that way since I was born, and have thus grown up dealing with it, so it's normal for me. I've wanted to be a surgeon for the longest time, and starting medical school next year (deferred offer), I feel it's within reach. Do you think it would be a problem if I only have one good eye? I'm dedicated to learning what has to be done, and am ambidextrous (just as a note). Thanks

  • Canadian Reserves as a Medical Assistant?

    Hey there, i just wanted to ask if anybody had some information on the Canadian Reserves, specifically as a Medical Assistant. Do you think it would be difficulty to do while going to school full time (major is Bio-medicine), and is it really voluntary to get to places?

  • Once made a promise to a person who I now can't stand?

    Hey, wanted to ask a question about morals kind of. Me and this girl had been friends since we first met (around 6) and have been best friends nearly since. A few years ago, we started going to school at different places and were separated for the first time since we met. We still talked everyday, skyped everyday, and would tell each other everything that was humanly possible. Actually, a lot of my friends thought the two of us were dating, and mutual friends always thinking we were too. Things were great and fun, hung in another country too, but this year, things just went downhill. It wasn't really that she did anything wrong, but i just stopped talking to her, and stopped talking to people altogether. It was a time where I was going through really bad depression, anxiety, multiplle personality thing, and developped minor ocd. I kind of blocked myself out from everybody since i found it easier to cope and stay to myself. I've gotten in touch with everybody but her, and she's always questioning me about what she did wrong and why things can't go back to normal. I want to explain everythign to her, and i've told her she did nothign wrong and that its me, but she refuses to accept it, and i can't bring myself to tell her. Few years ago, promised her that id go to her graduation, no matter what. She doesnt remember, but i do, and i don't know whether to go or not. She wouldnt know...but id know though...What should i do about her graduation and about her in general??? Thanks

  • Is it time to see a doctor about my hand?

    Hey there, I have a bit of a question regarding my hand. Ever since my girlfriend (now ex...) broke up with my a few months ago, me and some friends have started doing boxing and I find it to be loads of fun. I primarily don't do contact, mostly do shadow boxing and kind of doing "dancing" with music to get agile on my feet, and only punching a bag gently so as to get the movements down and practice boxing with two dominant hands (ambidextrous). In the middle of February, I saw what was then my ex of a week hooking up with something like 4 guys and lost it. The next day I went to my gym and just wrecked the bag with no protection on my hands. It was really bruised for quite a bit of time afterwards, and still is a little today. Also got really cut up on the knuckles with marks still there. For about a week, my right hand was absolutely killing me: wasn't able to grip anything, couldn't lift a book up, couldn't hold something or touch anything, even just doing nothing to it, like resting it on a pillow would cause it to kill. The pain has left, but whenever I rub my knuckles on my right hand, specifically the index finger, it feels as though something is cracking or moving, and when I do the same movement on the other hand, there is nothing. Whenever I straighten my hand also, the skin curves inward where most of the pain is found. Is it time I go see my doctor you think?

    Thanks for any advice you can give.

  • Good university program for medicine or graduate school?

    Hey

    I'm in Gr. 12 and am looking at York or Guelph for university next year. I was wondering which of the three programs I was looking at would be a good fit for somebody hoping to go into medicine or graduate studies, but I also like playing sports and being in clubs, so one that would also allow me to have an easy time to get a good GPA (92 right now). The programs I'm looking at are:

    - York Biomedical Sciences

    - York Kineseology and Health Science

    - Guelph Biomedical Sciences

    So which one would you recommend? I really like all three, the only difference honestly being that Guelph's biomedical Sciences over York's because the courses seem to have more of a medical focus on anatomy.

    Thanks

  • What should I do with her?

    Hey, wanted to ask for some opinions about this girl i know. We started to talk a lot this year, did a sports team together, lunch, skype, texting....Anyways, I think we've gotten pretty close, and were playing that question game the other day and it turned into this sexual and explicit question game on skype, and I joked about us two having a onsie sleepover one day and she was all for it.

    I'm kind of the person who doesn't pay much attention to things like these, and was curious what opinions were with what to do, if anything. And ideas?

  • How do i ask a girl to shower together and make it enjoyable for her?

    Me and this girl were kind of going out last year (not officially) but was turned down when asked. We're still good friends, closer now in fact than ever before, both of us being a lot more comfortable around each other. We didn't have sex at any point, but she's open to the idea of still having sex with each other (be it a one time thing or continuous I do not know) and as she said it, wants to help me with my relationship stuff, i.e. kissing, groping...

    We've figured on having sex (would've happened last time if we had the time to spend) next time we're together, and I'm pretty sure she's a virgin. What I wanted to ask was how can I make the whole experience most pleasurable and memorable for her. I'm a little apprehensive about blood, so was wondering if maybe starting off in the shower and then move somewhere else.

    My question is, or questions are:

    - Knowing that we'd have sex when we meet up, how do I start it off?

    - How do I make it most pleasurable for her?

    - How do i ask her into the shower?

  • York University Kineseology and Health Sciences or Biomedical Sciences?

    Hi, I'm a Gr. 12 Ontario student and started thinking about which university programs to apply for. I'm looking quite strongly at York for multiple reasons, one of which is that it's quite literally a 10 minute walk from my house, and was wondering if Kin. or Biomed. would offer the best preparation for a career in medicine or graduate school and becoming a researcher or getting involved in academia.

    I like what I hear about the Kin program, especially course wise, but am also attracted to the Biomed as I love research and the like. Which one would best prepare for medicine (for getting in and staying in) and offer greater chances for graduate work?

    I guess another question would be how competitive are the two to get into? I'm sitting at about a 93-94 with top six, and wondering if I'd be able to comfortably apply there without a worry. Thanks a lot.

  • How can I get her back??

    We met over a year ago and began building a strong friendship in the new year and went out a few times to a variety of places. The relationship kicked up a notch when kissing became a new form of greeting, passing the time and departing. We agreed in June to just not put the spotlight on the two of us and really enter into a real relationship due to us both being away for the majority of the summer months. I tried starting things up again in September but proved really hard, finding each other unavailable for both September and October, until finally we agreed t talk and met up. I asked her out, but she said she's not really sure if going out would be a good idea, answering no, but said she would think about it. I'm wondering what that means, the whole "I'll think about it."

    After that I just started babbling on about nothing and made a fool of myself. We didn't really talk about anything after that about what would happen next, but I really liker her and want to see the two of us together, so how can I slowly show her that it would be a good idea, that I'm the same person from before? I suppose I'm asking how can I get her back? What can I do??

    I feel absolutely at a loss of what to do without her and always feel uncomfortable and cant get her out of my thoughts. What can i do to get her back?? Do I ask for the two of us to start over/anew?? Please help, she's absolutely amazing and worth everything to me

    Thanks

  • Getting a Tim Horton's Ice Cap machine for university?

    Hey, so I absolutely love Tim Hortons products, especially their Ice Caps, and I was wondering if anybody had any idea on how once could get their hands on an actual machine. I feel as though a few years ago there were advertisements of students going to the U.S. for college taking some Tim Hortons coffee machines with them, and I'm going to be going to med school in the UK starting in September, and wanted to find a way to bring the actual Ice Caps with me. Any ideas??

  • Something's Gotten stuck in my Eye and hasn't Come out yet?

    So I was just standing on the sidewalk when a burst of wind came, and I instantly felt something (like dirt or something) get int my left eye. I tried getting out, and I started watering up like crazy, but it didn't come out. I tried blinking a lot, but I could barely keep my eye open. Eventually I could open it, but it hurts like heck whenever I close my eye and move it very quickly.

    Returning home, I tried pulling my upper and lower eyelid (one at a time) while putting water in there to try and wash it out, but no luck. It's been keeping up for about 7 hours now, and I'm getting really worried because I have a problem with my eyes where one of them is partially blind and my good eye, my left eye, has got this problem with it now. I'm in a foreign country on a course and I don't really know what to do at this point. Any advice would be great.

  • Tight foreskin trouble?

    Hey, so I'm 17 years-old, and have never retracted my foreskin, nor has it happened naturally on any level. I don't know what is really going on, because I feel as if the physical appearance of my foreskin hasn't changed at all. And when I say it can't retract at all, I really do mean at all.

    A question I have, is on what would be the "12:00 o'clock" portion of the foreskin, there's some kind of flap, and I don't know if I should be gently sliding that backwards so that there wouldn't be a "flap"-like structure anymore and then stretch it, so what it it?

    And also, how can I go about retracting my foreskin??

  • What's the name of this movie called?

    Hey. so I saw a movie commercial on tv earlier today, and thought my girlfriend and i could see it, because i know it's about something she likes. I don't really remember the name of it though, but here is what I remember, if anybody can give me the name of the movie, which should be in theaters, but may not be (I think it is, but it may have said releasing), in fact I think it is supposed to be at the end of the month, but anyways...

    So the movie, form what I remember, is about two old people who have been in a relationship for a whole lot of years, and at one point, one of them asks what would have happened if they had never met, the other answering they would have moved on. From what I remember, they live on some sort of waterfront I think in a small house, and the old man is set about building something for her, maybe a house, but I do not remember.

    I saw it on the History Channel if that helps. Thank you so much if you can tell me the name of the movie.

  • How can I get a 96+ average in Grade 12?

    Hey, I'm in Grade 11 right now with an average of about 92 or 93%, but the program I really want to get into for uni shows accepting people usually with 95/96 or higher. I have a reasonably good work ethic, and often find it normal to find myself working from 4 pm to 3 am everyday just because there is so much (I take 9 academic courses and an AP course). I'm doing 7 next year, which I suppose is quite good, with two of those beng fairly easy and am confident of getting 100% in each.

    What I am asking though, is I study very hard as is, but I just am not for some reason able to boost my average to a 95+. Any ideas on how I can do it??
