About NOSM Education Research Communities


The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) has a mandate to contribute to improving the health of the people and communities of Northern Ontario. One method of fulfilling this mandate is to increase the number of medical students who choose to live and work in Northern Ontario after graduation.

We are looking for highly motivated students from a variety of backgrounds, who are self-directed, who will thrive in a small group- based, distributed learning environment, who have a genuine interest in helping us fulfil our mandate and who uphold our values.

Our aim is to have class profiles which reflect the demographics of the population of Northern Ontario. It is the intention of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine to maximize the recruitment of students who are from Northern Ontario and/or students who have a strong interest in and aptitude for practising medicine in Northern urban, rural and remote communities. We are also committed to recruiting Indigenous/Aboriginal, Francophone and Franco-Ontarian students.
