A Message from the Program Director
A warm welcome to the NOSM University Psychiatry Program! We are excited to introduce you to the unique features of our Program. NOSM U is one program, distributed across three sites. We excel at training future psychiatrists who are competent to work in underserviced, rural and remote regions; we work with some of the most vulnerable populations with complex, acute addictions and mental health needs.
We are looking for future psychiatrists who are motivated, innovative, self-directed and enthusiastic about practicing Psychiatry in underserviced settings. NOSM U Psychiatry Residents live in the northern environment, and thrive in 1:1 individual mentorship model of clinical supervision. Our Residents benefit from accredited core training, while enjoying the small-town charm of our training sites.
NOSM U Psychiatry includes core rotations in General and Subspecialty (e.g., Child & Adolescent, Geriatrics, Forensics, Addictions) Psychiatry in a diversity of experiences and depth of proficiencies. Our Program equips our graduates with the necessary skills and competencies to practice in a northern and/or rural setting, or to pursue fellowship opportunities. Our graduates are able to practice in a variety of settings including emergency, inpatient, outpatient, community, outreach and to underserved people and their families. NOSM U’s commitment to social accountability is at the core of our Psychiatry Program. We look forward to meeting you.
