A Message from the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Medical Education

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to NOSM University (NOSM U), a medical school like no other in that our campus is the whole of Northern Ontario. We hope that you will take every opportunity to get to know our people, our geography, and our culture as you spend time in our region learning about medicine, social accountability and so much more!

You are about to embark on a journey that will give you the skills and knowledge to practice medicine – with all its rewards and challenges. Phase 1 (Years 1 and 2) will be spent learning medical basics in small and large group settings at one of our campuses in Sudbury and Thunder Bay. During those first two years, you will also learn clinical skills from experienced faculty members and spend time immersed in clinical placements in some of our more rural and remote communities.

Phase 2 (Year 3) is an eight-month Comprehensive Community Clerkship experience based in smaller communities across Northern Ontario. This will allow you to engage in a wide range of clinical activities assessing patients with various presentations in a community setting. Phase 3 (Year 4) takes place in the larger Health Science Centers of Sudbury and Thunder Bay, where you will get the chance to rotate through a series of clerkship rotations including Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Surgery as you prepare for the residency match and licensing exam.

You will be surprised how much you will learn and how fast your time with us will fly by! Enjoy every step of the way and take advantage of the various opportunities that we have to offer at NOSM U.
