Orientation 2019

Photo of Dr. Jason Shack, Assistant Dean of Learner Affairs, Northern Ontario School of MedicineWelcome 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.

Assistant Dean, Learner Affairs


Orientation Week Survey

The Oweek Survey has now closed. Thank you to everyone for completing the survey.

The information collected on the survey will assist us with Oweek planning, and will assist the Student Orientation Working Committee (SOWC) to match you with a second year student for the Buddy Program. Each year the SOWC pair up a first and second year student to help support the transition to medical school and navigate any questions and concerns incoming students may have. The information collected via the survey will be kept confidential.  Please note: only the Buddy Program portion of the survey will be shared with the SOWC.

Orientation Week Schedule

The 2019 Orientation Week (Oweek) Schedule is still in the process of being finalized. However, we are posting the most recent draft version to give you a better idea of what to expect throughout the week. Please note this is not the final version, and the schedule is subject to change at this point.
