Changes to an Elective

In the event a change should occur to a submitted elective application or confirmed elective, it is important to notify the Community Relations Coordinator well in advance (no less than 8 weeks prior to the anticipated start date).

Special Notes

Although some learners may contact preceptors directly to discuss placement learning objectives, learners should refrain from setting elective dates with a preceptor. Our internal administrative process assures that all learners have equitable access to the available placement opportunities in Northern Ontario.

Please email electives@nosm.ca and one of our Community Relations Coordinators will be happy to respond to any of your questions.
