NOSM Recognizes National Volunteer Week in Canada
April 23-29, 2017 is National Volunteer Week in Canada. The outstanding success of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is the result of the collaboration of people, communities, and organizations across the North, working together. Members of NOSM's Board of Directors, Indigenous Reference Group, Francophone Reference Group, Local NOSM Groups, and many others in over 90 communities across the North volunteer their time to ensure the School is responding to the health needs of our region. Today, and every day we say thank you, merci, and miigwetch for your time and commitment to NOSM and our learners.
Thank You, Merci, and Miigwetch to NOSM Faculty on Ontario Doctors' Day
Across NOSM's wider campus of Northern Ontario, learners are gaining relevant clinical experience under the guidance of health-care professionals in community hospitals, clinics, and family practices. On May 1 of each year we celebrate Ontario Doctors' Day. This day gives pause for reflection and recognition of the compassion and dedication of physicians in Ontario. On Ontario Doctors' Day—and every day—NOSM thanks our clinical faculty, including NOSM alumni, for their dedication to high-quality medical education, research, and practise. The success of NOSM’s learners is directly related to the expertise of the School’s more than 1,400 faculty across Northern Ontario.
