The Wider Campus of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine
NOSM—No Ordinary School of Medicine—has developed and delivers a distinctive model of distributed, community-engaged, and socially accountable health professional education. Across NOSM’s wider campus of Northern Ontario, learners gain relevant clinical experience under the guidance of health professionals in community hospitals, clinics, and family practices. The School brings together more than 1,300 faculty members and 200 employees to deliver Innovative education and research for a healthier North.
Northern Ontario is home to thousands of natural lakes, vertical granite cliffs, expansive forests, meandering rivers and streams, and a seemingly endless variety of inspiring landscapes. Though home to only six percent of the province’s population, Northern Ontario comprises nearly 90 percent of the province’s geography.
Nurtured by their surroundings, the people of Northern Ontario are passionate about their roots in the North. In fact, Northern Ontarians fought for and inspired the creation of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, which was developed to help realize the dream that all Northern Ontarians—no matter who they are, or where they live—have access to quality health care.
