Innovative Education and Research for a Healthier North.
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine is a unique institution defined by a commitment to social accountability. The School pursues a culture of inclusiveness and responsiveness within the medical communities, the Northern Communities, the rural communities, and the Aboriginal and Francophone communities it serves throughout the region.
Evidence of this mandate can be found in the School’s curriculum, administrative structure, research program, student demographics, and continuing education.
A distributed model of community-engaged medical education and research would not be possible without the support of community partners and collaborators. Together, through affiliation agreements with community hospitals or health centres, local physicians or student placements, we are able to train medial professionals who have an affinity for the North.
