Two New Members Appointed to NOSM Board of Directors
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) held its Annual Members and Board of Directors meetings on Wednesday. These meetings were video-linked between the School’s West Campus at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and its East Campus at Laurentian University in Sudbury, with other Directors participating via teleconference.
At the Annual Members Meeting, which involves one representative each of Laurentian University and Lakehead University, the audited financial statements for the year ending April 30, 2009 were approved, and members of the Board of Directors for 2009 – 2010 were appointed. NOSM M.D. student Paul Miron (nominated by the Northern Ontario School of Medicine Student Society) and recent NOSM M.D. graduate Dr. Adam Moir (nominated by the Postgraduate Residency Trainees) were inducted into the Board.
The Directors received reports from Board Committees, including the Finance and Audit, Quality Monitoring, Governance, Board Executive, Advancement, and Nominating Committees.
The Directors also received reports from the School’s Academic Council, Research Associate Dean, Strategic Planning Committee, Archives Reference Group, Aboriginal Reference Group, and Francophone Reference Group.
The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be held on December 3 and 4, 2009 in Thunder Bay.
