NOSM Electives Catalogue
For elective opportunities please reference the NOSM section of the AMFC Portal for elective descriptions within all our communities. If you require guidance on disciplines and communities that offer elective opportunities, please contact the appropriate Community Relations Coordinator or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each elective provides an opportunity to develop skills in an informal setting and offers hands-on exposure to a wide range of medical situations that are often not available in a larger urban teaching centre. Each learner works closely with a clinical facilitator to meet his/her objectives, with regular feedback and evaluations. Electives are available in Family Medicine, Rural Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, as well as in many of the specialty disciplines.
