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 other topics such as dietetics and professions such as 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 four program areas that NOSM provides are; Undergraduate Medical Education Program; Postgraduate Residency Programs; Continuing Education and Professional Development; and, Interprofessional Education Programs
