Created to be Accountable

Even before NOSM’s Charter MD Class was welcomed in 2005, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine demonstrated its commitment to improving the health of the peoples and communities of Northern Ontario. At the earliest stages of development, NOSM engaged the Indigenous communities of Northern Ontario as part of its mandate to be accountable to the cultural diversity of the region. The School regularly solicits feedback from their invaluable experience and ideas to move the School forward.

Though home to only six percent of Ontario’s population, Northern Ontario comprises nearly 90 percent of the province’s geography. Northern Ontarians fought for and inspired the creation of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, which was developed to help realize the dream that all Northern Ontarians—no matter who they are, or where they live—have access to quality health care.
