The safety of the NOSM community is our top priority as we closely monitor the global COVID-19 pandemic. With the welfare of everyone in mind, we have made the difficult decision not to offer the in-person delivery of CampMed in Sudbury and Thunder Bay in July 2020.

UPDATE: We are moving forward with an alternative delivery of the CampMed program that will be run virtually from June 29 to July 24, 2020. The Virtual CampMed programming will allow all students to participate in the camp with several sessions scheduled every week.

There is no cost or application process to participate in the Virtual CampMed; however, participants will be required to register for live sessions. Select the button below to visit the Virtual CampMed webpage for registration information, agenda, session descriptions, and more!
