For Current Students
NOSM is committed to graduating health professionals who have the knowledge, skills, competencies, and humility to provide care adapted to the needs of Northern, rural, and remote communities.
NOSM students can find here the support and resources they need in order to be successful in their careers and while learning in a culture of wellness.
Welcome to NOSM! Your first few days and the next four years here at NOSM will likely be an exciting time with much learning, many new experiences, new friendships and likely new challenges. We in the Learner Affairs Offices on the Lakehead and Laurentian Campuses wish you well as you begin this new endeavor. As well, we want you to be aware that we are here to support you throughout this time to help ensure your success. Remember that you cannot take care of others unless you take the time to take care of yourselves first.
I wish you all the best throughout this orientation week and the next four years. Remember that we are just an email, phone call or door knock away.
Dr. Jason Shack, MD, CCFP, FCFP
Assistant Dean, Learner Affairs
