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’s COVID-19 Information site and is updated regularly based on the most relevant information provided by the community/teaching sites.

Visiting PGME Family Medicine Rural Elective Pilot (for residents) *NEW*

As NOSM 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.

  • Up to $1000 to cover costs associated with application fee, housing, and travel
  • Upon request, NOSM housing can be arranged, but if residents prefer to arrange own housing, funding can be applied to associated costs
  • Explore rural generalist family medicine to see if it is a good fit for your future career

Applications will be accepted from now until June of 2022.
