The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is excited to announce that CampMed will be offered entirely online from July 12 to July 23, 2021, marking the second year of virtual CampMed.

NOSM’s 16th annual summer camp is designed for high-school students interested in a career in health care. CampMed focuses on four core learning areas: interprofessionalism, leadership, culture, and clinical skills. The experience provides Northern youth with an opportunity to explore a variety of health-care careers and be mentored by post-secondary students.

This year’s virtual CampMed will be led by a team of 27 university student volunteers as well as staff, faculty, and learners from NOSM. Sessions will include CSI, immunology and virology, medical imaging, Francophone and Indigenous health and culture, and much more.

CampMed is open to all Northern Ontario high school students in grades nine through twelve. Students must have completed grade nine to register. Pre-registration is required and there is no cost to participate. Register at nosm.ca/campmed.
