Northern Constellations

Join us at Northern Constellations!

Join us as Northern Ontario School of Medicine hosts Northern Constellations, our annual faculty development conference in the spring of each year. Northern Constellations is the largest physician and faculty meeting in Northern Ontario. The Conference provides a forum to share new ideas in medical education and health care along with opportunities to network with colleagues.

Northern Constellations was established in 2012 as a faculty development and engagement opportunity for NOSM’s faculty who are distributed across 90 educational sites in Northern Ontario.  The Conference is designed to further develop faculty with their various responsibilities:  teaching and preceptoring; research and scholarly activity; faculty and learner wellness/resiliency; collaborative leadership; and partners in the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. During the conference, faculty attend a series of plenaries and workshops allowing each attendee to address their personal learning needs.  Northern Constellations uses an integrated approach to faculty development with attendance of faculty involved in undergraduate, postgraduate, or continuing educational professional development activities. Due to the vast geographical distances between NOSM educational sites, specific initiatives support formal and informal networking including the cluster of affiliated meetings linked to Northern Constellations.

Northern Constellations 2020 will be held in Thunder Bay from May 8-9, 2020 at the Valhalla Inn.
