UPDATED: MAY 13, 2020 | 8:17 AM EST
Please refer to NOSM’s Response to COVID-19 site for all NOSM Summer Studentship updates.
An update from the NOSM Summer Studentship Program:
Please be advised that Agencies can continue to move forward with recruitment plans to have Summer Students in place for July 1, 2020.
If your agency feels that they have the capacity to hire a student, then please proceed with your recruitment process if you have not already done so. During times of social distancing, we do encourage you to conduct interviews over the phone, zoom or via other means.
If your agency is unsure or feels that they may not be able to support a student placement for this year, please notify me so that proper updates can be made to our records.
Please monitor your emails for updates from your agency of choice as they may reach out to you. If you are unsure of your status, you may contact me directly and I can help assist you.
In support of the efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, NOSM is suspending the funding for the Summer Studentship Program. The funding will be restricted for use until after June 30, 2020.
This is in line with university programs and current cancellation guidelines and may be subject to further change depending on the progression of COVID-19.
Agencies may, at their discretion contact or interview applicants prior to this date in order to have them in place for July 1, 2020. Agencies are encouraged to use virtual means of conducting interviews rather than face-to-face during this time.
If your agency feels that they will not be able to support a student placement for the 2020 year, please notify this program when you are able to do so. The program will communicate with the applicants directly.
Please do not contact the agencies directly during these next few weeks.
They must be allotted time to deal with the most pressing business at hand during this pandemic. If you are unsure of where you may stand, please email the summer studentship program and we will try to assist you. In the event that a placement must be cancelled, the program will notify you directly.
