A Message from the Program Director
The NOSM General Surgery Program offers residents a comprehensive training experience leading towards successful acquisition of certification in general surgery, along with the requisite knowledge and skills to effectively practice in a variety of community environments as a General Surgeon.
The program provides trainees with exposure to the practice of surgery in regional clinical settings in the larger centres, as well as in smaller urban and rural locations in northern Ontario. Residents of the program can expect to gain valuable experience in diverse environments, as they spend a large portion of their training in northern rural environments. In addition, residents will also gain valuable experience and proficiency in subspecialty areas that are integral to community practice.
