Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) maintains a commitment to providing
information to rural, remote, Aboriginal and Francophone youth about health
careers. Health Sciences Summer Camp at NOSM provides students with a unique
opportunity to learn about professions in the health-care sector.
programs take place within the modern, technologically advanced settings of the
medical laboratories on NOSM’s West Campus located at Lakehead University in
Thunder Bay, and the East Campus located at Laurentian University in Sudbury.
The camps offer students with an opportunity to explore health-care careers.
Our activities are designed to ensure there is a correlation between health
care, intervention, and basic sciences.
The camp provides Northern Ontario students going into grade 10 and 11 (14-16 years of age) in September 2016 with an opportunity to explore Aboriginal culture, health and tradition, Francophone culture, health and tradition, health-care careers, obtain hands-on experience, and find a mentor.
Application to NOSM's Health Sciences Summer Camp for 2016 is now closed.

"This will forever be my favourite picture, and here's why - It was taken during one of the most memorable weeks of my life, so far. I made so many new friends, and it was easily one of the best experiences. Although I would probably tell you I look silly if you were to ask, my smile in this picture is as real as they get. This picture wasn't planned, but it captures perfectly, how happy I was in this moment, while doing my sutures. Every time I stumble upon this picture, it inspires me to push my hardest, to hopefully one day study at NOSM. Sliding into my scrubs every morning was the closest thing to security and confidence I’ve felt in a long time. My week spent at NOSM changed me, and if I could tell you one thing I held on to from my experience there, is to shoot for the stars and not to cut yourself short. Go confidently into direction of your dreams, and I promise you, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. As Marian Edelman once said, "No person has the right to rain on your dreams." The only limits that exist are the ones you impose on yourself - never forget that."
