Meet our incoming MD class
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine sent out its offers of admission for the MD class of 2022 on May 8, 2018. Since then, members of our new class have been introducing themselves on social media, using the hashtag #YesToNOSM.
In many Northern Ontario communities, recruiting and retaining physicians and other health-care professionals has been a challenge for decades. NOSM is a made-in-the-north solution to regional health inequalities, including physician shortages.
The first medical school in Canada with a social accountability mandate, NOSM has become a world-recognized leader in the field of health professional education. Our unique model of distributed, community-engaged medical education and research is producing highly sought-after physicians, residents, physician assistants, dieticians and other health-care professionals, many of whom are currently serving the North.
The majority of our future MDs come from the North; all of them will be training in communities across the North; and research shows the majority will stay and practice in the North when they graduate.
