THUNDER BAY – HEALTH – The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) are seeking eight (8) individuals to join the Board of Directors starting in September 2016.
Since its inception, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine has proudly defied traditional health professional education.
Born of a grassroots movement by Northern Ontarians in need of health professionals, NOSM is a medical school like no other. No other Canadian medical school is a joint initiative between two universities—in this case, Lakehead University in Thunder Bay and Laurentian University in Sudbury. No other Canadian medical school provides training in more than 90 communities across a geographic expanse of 800,000 square kilometres. Rather than taking an off-the-shelf approach to delivering health professional programs modeled after traditional methods, NOSM has developed novel education strategies to meet the needs of Northern Ontarians.
Applicants must submit a NOSM Board of Directors Application Form, accompanied by a CV or resumé and the names and contact information of three (3) references. All applications will be acknowledged.
Deadline for submissions is February 12, 2016.
Application forms and other supporting documents are available at nosm.ca/board.
