NOSM Awards of Education and scholarship
Call for Nominations
Faculty, residents, and students of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) play an integral role in achieving the School’s mission of Innovative education and research for a healthier North. NOSM recognizes the contributions that all NOSM members are making to education, research, clinical care, and administration in Northern Ontario. The Faculty Affairs and Continuing Education
and Professional Development (CEPD) Portfolio strategic plan calls for the School to foster excellent faculty relations, while more clearly articulating how contributions in the areas of education, research, clinical care, and administration enrich faculty members’ careers as clinical and non-clinical academicians.
The strategic plan promotes an environment that will enhance the quality of education; increase research output; increase grant funding; align research initiatives with NOSM’s mission and values; encourage an increasing number of NOSM faculty and learners to incorporate research, teaching, and other scholarly pursuits into daily activities; and, encourage research collaboration across programs and divisions.
