Our Thoughts are with Nepal
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) was deeply saddened to learn of the earthquake that devastated Nepal and its neighbouring countries on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Our thoughts are with the many people—including family, friends and colleagues of NOSM staff and faculty—who have been affected by the natural disaster. During this difficult time, NOSM's thoughts also go out to its partner School, the Patan Academy of Health Sciences, that is based in Nepal and, like NOSM, shares a commitment to socially accountable medical education.
Thank You! | Merci! | Miigwetch!
April 12 - 18, 2014 is National Volunteer Week in Canada. The outstanding success of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is the result of the collaboration of individuals, communities, and organizations across the School's wider campus of Northern Ontario. Members of NOSM's Board of Directors, Francophone Reference Group, Aboriginal Reference Group, Local NOSM Groups, communities, and individuals across the North volunteer their time to ensure the School—built in the North, for the North, and by the North—is extraordinary.
