Northern Ontario-based agencies looking to hire health-care students for the summer of 2023 may seek approval by completing the online Summer Studentship Program Agency Application Form from November 1, 2022 to January 1, 2023. If required, additional information about organizational and recruitment goals will be requested for submission by January 15, 2023.

Students will be invited to apply for summer placements with approved agencies in winter 2023 through the NOSM University application process. All employment-related matters, such as the selection of candidates, job duties, rate of pay, and duration of the employment contract are determined by the employing agency.
