So, you’re one of those people who actually reads the About page—cool!
We knew, from talking with young physicians, that one of the hardest parts of applying to med school was how scattered the information was. Application info for schools across Canada – due dates, fees, requirements, etc. – was available online, but it was located on different sites, on different pages, in different formats. And that added a whole extra layer of unnecessary stress to the process of applying to med school. So, our initial goal was to see if we could get all that information in one place.
And we did it! We called it Browse, and since it launched in mid-2017, it has helped countless students find the program that is right for them (without all that unnecessary stress).
Over the past few years, we have developed tools to answer those questions—and much more. This is how the onboardMD platform has evolved into what it is today. And it continues to evolve. Because we continue to have conversations with med students and young physicians who, at new and different phases of their journeys, find themselves facing new and different challenges. These conversations aren’t just happening online; through onboardMD, students and young physicians are able to connect directly with MD Financial Management’s expert team of early-career advisors, where they can get ongoing first-person advice about how to manage all the unique facets of their medical careers.
