Enrich our educational programs to foster exemplary quality health care in rural and remote communities.

NOSM was built on research evidence which shows that recruiting learners from Northern Ontario or similar backgrounds and providing clinical education in Northern, rural, and remote settings are essential steps in graduating health professionals who have the knowledge, skills, competencies, and humility to provide care adapted to the needs of Northern, rural, and remote — including Aboriginal and Francophone — communities.

We will continue to innovate and build our distinctive model of distributed community-engaged learning to ensure continuous improvement in all programs and to graduate health professionals with the competencies required for Northern Ontario. We will continue to emphasize interprofessional education and competency-based curriculum.

Through these areas of focus, we will stay committed to our ongoing excellence in education.
