INTRODUCTION: Canadian medical students are more likely to come from urban and high-income areas and to have well-educated, professional parents. Physicians who grew up in rural areas are more likely to serve in rural and lower-income areas. We identify perceptions held by rural high school students regarding the affordability and attainability of a medical education. METHODS: We distributed a survey to high school students who attended the MedQUEST Health Career Exploration Program in southwestern Ontario...

BACKGROUND: Patients with chest pain contribute substantially to emergency department attendances, lengthy hospital stay, and inpatient admissions. A reliable, reproducible, and fast process to identify patients presenting with chest pain who have a low short-term risk of a major adverse cardiac event is needed to facilitate early discharge. We aimed to prospectively validate the safety of a predefined 2-h accelerated diagnostic protocol (ADP) to assess patients presenting to the emergency department with chest pain symptoms suggestive of acute coronary syndrome...

Ventricular assist devices now clinically used for treatment of end-stage heart failure require responsive and reliable hemodynamic control to accommodate the continually changing demands of the body. This is an essential ingredient to maintaining a high quality of life. To satisfy this need, a control algorithm involving a trade-off between optimal perfusion and avoidance of ventricular collapse has been developed. An optimal control strategy has been implemented in vitro that combines two competing indices: representing venous return and prevalence of suction...

BACKGROUND: Explicit chart review was an integral part of an ongoing national cooperative project, "Using Achievable Benchmarks of Care to Improve Quality of Care for Outpatients with Depression," conducted by a large managed care organization (MCO) and an academic medical center. Many investigators overlook the complexities involved in obtaining high-quality data. Given a scarcity of advice in the quality improvement (QI) literature on how to conduct chart review, the process of chart review was examined and specific techniques for improving data quality were proposed...
