With more than 90 NOSM teaching communities across the North, NOSM’s wider campus of Northern Ontario spans the entire geography of the region. Health education and research is taking place in your backyard and is affecting Northern Ontario communities in addressing priority health concerns.

The Communications Unit is eager to provide information about the exciting work of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine’s learners, faculty, staff, communities, or partners. If you are preparing a story about health education, health care in Northern Ontario, health research, access to care, distributed education and many other topics, make NOSM’s Communications Unit your first stop! Not only do we have our own content, photography, and video that you are welcome to use, we are also happy to support you to secure interviews, find background information, or connect you with expert commentators.
