The NOSM Challenge 2025

NOSM University’s latest Strategic Plan, The NOSM Challenge 2025, had set the first strategic direction as the Transformation of Human Health Resources in Northern Ontario with the following goal: To link human health resources (HHR) to Northern Ontario’s needs (Francophone, Indigenous, rural and urban) with a focus on specialist and subspecialist physician training.

The aspiration is that NOSM University’s transformative approach to the planning and delivery of workforce supply eliminates the gaps in Northern Ontario human resources

Four Outcomes will be measured as NOSM University moves forward with achieving this priority:

    1. An integrated, customized and evidence-based approach to health human resources (HHR) for Northern Ontario
    2. Integration of rural, remote and community needs into our education programs
    3. Enhanced connectivity and communications for all NOSM University communities
    4. A system to support clinical faculty in their academic work

Initial information on the measurable outcomes of in this work can be found here.

Other strategic priorities of Social Accountability, Innovation in Health Professional Education, and Strengthening Research Capacity in Northern Ontario are all linked to the first strategic direction.
