NOSM Board of Directors Seeks New Members

Friday, January 23, 2015

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is seeking five (5) individuals to join the Board of Directors in September 2015.

Since its official opening in 2005, the School has developed and delivered a distinctive model of distributed, community-engaged, and socially accountable medical education and research. NOSM serves as the Faculty of Medicine of Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and the Faculty of Medicine of Laurentian University in Sudbury, with teaching and research sites across Northern Ontario.

NOSM is a made-in-the-North solution that is attracting attention from around the world for its innovative model. In just a few years, NOSM has become a world leader in community-engaged medical education and research, while staying true to its social accountability mandate of contributing to improving the health of the people and communities of Northern Ontario. When the School welcomed its first students in September 2005, it became the first new medical school in Canada in over 30 years and the only Canadian medical school to be established as a stand-alone, not-for-profit corporation, with its own Board of Directors and corporate by-laws.
