Northern Ontario Summer Studentship Program (SSP)

November 1, 2020 – Please refer to NOSM’s COVID-19 site for all NOSM Summer Studentship updates or contact for additional information. 

NOSM’s Summer Studentship Program (SSP) has been established by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to allow a limited number of regulated health-care students an opportunity to gain relevant work experience in their field of study.

This ministry-funded program provides priority funding to agencies for students who were born and/or raised in one or more of our Northern Ontario communities shown on this map of Northern Ontario.

Previously vetted hospitals and clinics in Northern Ontario typically offer summer employment between May and August. Review the current year Agency Employment List below to select your Employer of Choice.

All employment-related matters such as the selection of candidates, the job duties, the rate of pay, and the duration of the employment contract is determined by the employing agency. Successful job applicants can expect more details about the job from the employing agency.
