Mandatory Vaccination Policy for all Visiting Learners – Effective September 07, 2021
Learners applying for visiting clinical placements: In accordance with Directive #6 from the Chief Medical Officer of Health, each teaching site will have their individual vaccination requirements, which all learners must adhere to prior to deployment for clinical placements. In some cases, a hospital/teaching site may be asking for “proof of full vaccination or medical exemption”. As such, the Community Relations Unit will collect vaccination status and supporting documentation from all visiting learners during the credentialing process of the application. The teaching site safety requirements can be found on the NOSM University’s COVID-19 Information site and is updated regularly based on the most relevant information provided by the community/teaching sites.
Visiting Family Medicine Rural Elective Program
As NOSM University recognizes the urgent need for Rural Generalist Family Physicians in rural Northern Ontario communities, the Office of Physician Workforce Strategy and Community Relations Unit have developed a pilot program aiming to help ease the financial burden on Canadian Visiting Family Medicine residents by supporting them to participate in placements within NOSM’s rural communities in Northern Ontario.
Our goal is to better support opportunities for residents to work alongside skilled rural generalist family physicians supporting clinical service delivery while living and learning in the North and exploring the possibility of future work as a comprehensive rural generalist.
For more information on this new pilot program, visit NOSM University‘s Physician Workforce Strategy.
