OVERVIEW

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is located in Ontario. However, Northern Ontario covers an immense area and is characterized by low population density and widely distributed rural and remote communities. With two campuses on either side of Northern Ontario (Sudbury in the east and Thunder Bay in the west) the school is ideally situated to fulfill its social accountability mandate of "contributing to improving the health of the people and communities of Northern Ontario" including its Francophone and Aboriginal populations. Both Thunder Bay and Sudbury are rich in beauty and culture, and will give you a great taste of northern and rural heath!
NOTE: If you wish to do an exchange with NOSM please start the process as early as possible!

If you want more information please refer to http://www.nosm.ca/electives/ and feel free to contact NOSM's Local Exchange Officer for Incoming Students (LEOSr.NOSM@gmail.com) or Marie Prpic Clinical Placement Coordinator for International Visiting Electives (Tel:  807-766-7322, Email:  mprpic@nosm.ca)

UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

As stated above, NOSM has two campuses that are separated by a twelve hour drive. The campuses are located in the following two cities:

Sudbury where it is affiliated with Health Sciences North/Horizon Santé-Nord (HSN) and Laurentian University

and

Thunder Bay where it is affiliated with the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) and Lakehead University

NOTE: There are many other communities available besides Thunder Bay and Sudbury. If you wish for a different community then please specify this somewhere in your application. However, please note that if you are placed outside of Thunder Bay and Sudbury then you will receive less support from the local committee because they will be geographically distant.

RESEARCH PROJECTS AND LABS
NOSM currently does not accept incoming SCORE students.
BOARDING
NOSM is not responsible for the incoming student's food. However, a $100 CAD stipend is provided in order to assist incoming students with extra costs like food.
LODGING

Lodging is quite variable. The incoming student may be placed with a NOSM student, on their own or in student residence.

TRANSPORTATION
There is public transportation (buses) in both Sudbury and Thunder Bay. Students are responsible for transporting themselves to and from their work each day. However, as stated above, a $100 CAD stipend is provided to help with extra costs like transportation. We also attempt to help facilitate the easiest commute possible for the incoming student. For instance, we do our best to provide accommodations near to the clinic/hospital/school you will be attending during your stay.
SOCIAL PROGRAM
Quite variable. A lot depends on which campus you attend (Sudbury or Thunder Bay). That being said, our local committee does its best to provide stimulating social activities for all our incoming students. To help us, please let us know any particular interests you have.
