A Distributed Model of Community-Engaged Medical Education
Northern Ontario School of Medicine runs a range of educational programs
spanning the undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional phases of
physician training as well as a number of other topics such as dietetics and
professions such as physician assistants.
These programs take place in large and small
communities across Northern Ontario. This reflects the profoundly distributed
and community-engaged educational philosophy of the School that flows from its
mandate to be responsive to the health care needs of the people of Northern
Ontario. The four program areas that NOSM provides are; Undergraduate Medical
Education Program; Postgraduate Residency Programs; Continuing Education and
Professional Development; and, Interprofessional Education Programs.
