NOSM UNDERGRADUATE MEDICAL EDUCATION (ume) pROGRAM LEADING TO THE MD DEGREE
The Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) portfolio
at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine is responsible for delivering the
four-year undergraduate MD program. The
curriculum is organized around five themes that link teaching, learning and
assessment into a single integrated curriculum. Medical students engage in a
combination of small and large group teaching, practical and lab teaching, and significant
community-based clinical experiences that combine clinical, medical, and human
sciences into a powerful, innovative and socially accountable program.
At completion of the program, NOSM graduates earn
an MD degree and are ready and able to undertake postgraduate training anywhere
in Canada with a special affinity for training and
clinical practice in northern urban, rural, and remote communities.
