    I worked at The Ottawa Hospital as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff at this hospital is of excellent calibre regardless of department, great to learn from. I was a student doing a clinical practicum.

    Cons

    Hiring practices are highly questionable, especially at the General campus. Some students are given preference based on their originating campus. From a trusted classmate: students from particular campuses are given the interview questions and best answers prior to the interview.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management, because it doesn't matter. Advice to students at TOH: apply EVERYWHERE, do not rely on TOH especially if you're not on the good side of the right people at the right time.
