THUNDER BAY – The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) maintains a commitment to providing information to rural, remote, Francophone and Aboriginal youth about health careers. Health Sciences Summer Camps at NOSM provide students with a unique opportunity to learn about professions in the health-care sector.

These week-long programs take place within the modern, technologically advanced settings of the medical laboratories on NOSM’s West Campus located at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, and the East Campus located at Laurentian University in Sudbury. The Camps provide students with an opportunity to explore health-care careers, obtain hands-on experience, and find a mentor.

Camp activities include: learning to put on and remove casts; DNA analysis and techniques used by Crime Scene Investigators; physiology and functions of the human body; cultural awareness; and, preparing for health careers such as medicine, nursing, and emergency care.

NOSM is currently looking for interested high school students who will be attending Grade 10 and 11 in September 2014. The camps are free, and are held in Thunder Bay and Sudbury on July 7-11, 2014.
