Francophone and Indigenous Health Learning Resources

We highly encourage all of our learners to familiarize themselves with the issues impacting both Francophone Health and Indigenous Health – as these are an important part of the social accountability mandate of NOSM. These modules are not required but can help to direct you in preparing for a placement in Northern Ontario. You can also work with your preceptor and Clinical Learning Liaison to incorporate completion of these modules into your placement experience. In many cases, you will work with one or both of these groups while completing a placement in Northern Ontario. Therefore, completing these modules can help inform what you will see and do with your preceptors.

If you have suggestions for additional e-learning modules or online resources to help prepare our learners for placements in Northern Ontario, please contact Mike Ravenek – Manager, Health Sciences at mravenek@nosm.ca
