A warm welcome to the NOSM Psychiatry Program. We are excited to introduce you to our Program. We are looking for people who are motivated, self-directed and enthusiastic about practicing Psychiatry in unique settings. NOSM 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 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 trained to be able to practice in a variety of settings including emergency, inpatient, outpatient, community, outreach and to under-served people and their families. NOSM’s commitment to social accountability is at the core of NOSM Psychiatry Program. We look forward to meeting you.
