 The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) maintains a commitment to providing information to rural, remote, Aboriginal and Francophone youth about health careers. Health Sciences Summer Camp at NOSM provides students with a unique opportunity to learn about professions in the health-care sector.

These week-long programs take place within the modern, technologically advanced settings of the medical laboratories on NOSM’s West Campus located at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, and the East Campus located at Laurentian University in Sudbury. The camps offer students with an opportunity to explore health-care careers. Our activities are designed to ensure there is a correlation between health care, intervention, and basic sciences.

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine is pleased to accept applications for the 2017 Health Sciences Camp. The camp, for students going into grade 10 and 11 in September 2017, provides those from Northern Ontario and other rural and remote parts of Canada with an opportunity to:

  • obtain hands-on experience;
  • discover potential health-care careers;
  • find a student mentor; and,
  • learn about Francophone and Indigenous health and culture.

AlyssaLabelle"This will forever be my favourite picture, and here's why - It was taken during one of the most memorable weeks of my life, so far. I made so many new friends, and it was easily one of the best experiences. Although I would probably tell you I look silly if you were to ask, my smile in this picture is as real as they get. This picture wasn't planned, but it captures perfectly, how happy I was in this moment, while doing my sutures. Every time I stumble upon this picture, it inspires me to push my hardest, to hopefully one day study at NOSM. Sliding into my scrubs every morning was the closest thing to security and confidence I’ve felt in a long time. My week spent at NOSM changed me, and if I could tell you one thing I held on to from my experience there, is to shoot for the stars and not to cut yourself short. Go confidently into direction of your dreams, and I promise you, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. As Marian Edelman once said, "No person has the right to rain on your dreams." The only limits that exist are the ones you impose on yourself - never forget that."
