The NOSM University PHPM program reviews candidates’ applications based on:

  • Demonstrated interest in and understanding of Public Health and Preventive Medicine
  • Academic record
  • Strength of references
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Demonstrated ability to be self-directed
  • Professional and leadership qualities
  • Desire to train in a variety of community settings
  • An established interest in future Northern urban, rural or remote practice will be a key consideration

As the clinical component of PHPM residency training is completed through the NOSM University Family Medicine residency program (whether completing one or two clinical training years), the admission requirements for the Family Medicine residency program have to be met by PHPM candidates, which can include clinical examination score requirements.
