A Distributed Model of Community-Engaged Medical Education
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine runs a range of educational programs spanning the undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional phases of physician training as well as a number of professions such as registered dietitians and physician assistants.
These programs take place in large and small communities across Northern Ontario. This reflects the profoundly distributed and community-engaged educational philosophy of the School that flows from its mandate to be responsive to the health-care needs of the people of Northern Ontario. The program areas include: MD program; postgraduate medical education; Continuing Education and Professional Development; and, Health Sciences and Interprofessional Education.
