NOSM Electives Catalogue
Please note: The electives catalogue is no longer being offered at this time. Please contact the appropriate Placement Coordinator or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you require guidance on disciplines and communities that offer elective opportunities.
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.
