NOSM University seeks agency applications for Summer Studentship Program

Posted on October 24, 2023

NOSM University invites Northern Ontario-based agencies to apply for funding through its Summer Studentship Program. Established by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the program provides funding to approved agencies to employ health-care students looking to gain relevant work experience in their field of study.

The program is open to a wide variety of medical professionals such as nurses, medical radiation and lab technicians, dieticians, midwives, respiratory therapists, first- and second-year MD students, and rehabilitation learners such as physiotherapists, audiologists, speech language pathologists, and occupational therapists.

Northern Ontario-based agencies looking to hire health-care learners for the summer of 2024 may seek approval by completing the online Summer Studentship Program Agency Application Form from November 1, 2023 to January 1, 2024. If required, additional information about organizational and recruitment goals will be requested for submission by January 15, 2024.

Learners will be invited to apply for summer placements with approved agencies in winter 2024 through the NOSM University application process. To be eligible for the program, learners must be born and/or raised in Northern Ontario and studying in a health discipline approved by the program. 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.
