The Northern Ontario School of Medicine’s campus spans 800,000 km2 across Northern Ontario and includes Indigenous, Francophone, rural and remote communities as well as urban centres. Profiles of some of the more than 90 communities where NOSM residents live and learn provide you with background and learning opportunities.
The warmth of community members help provide unparalleled clinical experiences and a strong connection to the land, culture and people.
Northern Ontario has much more to it than meets the eye; the people and the landscapes ignite the soul. Be curious, adventurous and connect to nature. You’ll experience diverse history through the cultures of our Anishinaabe, Métis and Francophone communities.
Our residents experience both urban and rural Northern culture. Spend time at theatres, gastro pubs, breweries, festivals, performances and art galleries. Or explore the wilderness, see a freshwater salmon run, view the Northern lights, hear storytellings of Indigenous Elders, cross-country or downhill ski, or paddle some of the largest, cleanest freshwater lakes in the world.
