NOSM Reports on Your Medical School at the 10-Year Mark

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is a medical school made in the North, for the North. As the School celebrates its 10th anniversary, we want to let you know what we’ve been doing for the last decade, and how we’ve been working with our many partners to build a healthier Northern Ontario. 

To this end, NOSM is excited to announce the release of a fully bilingual document—“A Report to Northern Ontario”—which provides information about how your medical school is working to improve the health of people and communities in the North. In this report (attached), you will find:

  • Facts and figures about new graduates working in the North.
  • Information about the economic impact of the School in Northern Ontario.
  • Information about the School’s model, programs, and teaching sites.
  • Information about the breadth of health research taking place across the North.
  • Information about how Northerners can engage and be active with NOSM.

“NOSM was built on social accountability, which means that we are accountable to you,” says Dr. Roger Strasser, NOSM Dean. “On NOSM’s 10th anniversary, it is exciting to share with you some of the School’s many successes in addressing the priority health concerns of the region—successes which have only been possible thanks to the support and dedication of so many across the North.”

To learn more about what your medical school has accomplished in the last decade, visit nosm.ca. This report will also be available in clinics and waiting rooms across Northern Ontario. Hard copies can be requested by contacting NOSM’s Communications Unit at communications@nosm.ca or 807-766-7452.
