Global Health Initiatives

As a committee, we are working hard to provide NOSM students with exciting and educational opportunities related to global health. Our initiatives and work occurs not only locally in Sudbury and Thunder Bay, but also nationally with medical schools across the country. Our national work is coordinated through the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) and focuses largely on advocacy and curriculum change implementation.
