NOSM to Celebrate 10th Anniversary in Sault Ste. Marie

The 2015-2016 academic year marks 10 years since the Northern Ontario Medical School (NOSM) welcomed its inaugural class of medical students. Over the last decade, the School has worked with communities across the region to build a healthier Northern Ontario.

From June 20-25, 2016, NOSM will be hosting the International conference on Community Engaged Medical Education in the North (ICEMEN), which will attract over 300 leading researchers from Canada and around the world to Northern Ontario.

Held in Sault Ste. Marie, the city is one of over 90 communities across the region to host NOSM learners.

It is very significant that the School’s 10th anniversary celebrations is being held in Sault Ste. Marie, as the city hosted a curriculum development workshop when NOSM was preparing to admit the inaugural MD class. While there have been modifications since, the unique curricular model developed at the Sault Ste. Marie meeting is still in use, and has been a key feature of NOSM’s international reputation in medical education.

NOSM is concluding its year of 10th Anniversary celebrations with a very special reception and dinner. Join past, present, and future friends of NOSM and share your Stories Around the Campfire. The evening will include a rich cultural experience with our Indigenous and Francophone community partners, including a welcome by the Chief of the traditional territory Batchewana First Nation.
