Program Information

School:NOSM University
Field of Study:Medicine (MD)
Description:Graduates of the NOSM University Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) program have earned a Medical Doctor (MD) degree and are ready and able to undertake postgraduate training anywhere in Canada, albeit, with a special affinity for training and clinical practice in northern urban, rural, remote, Indigenous, and Francophone communities. We are proud that, historically, based on the strength of the UME program, and their hard work, our graduates have done very well in matching to residency programs.

Students engage in a combination of small and large group teaching, practical and lab teaching, and community-based clinical experiences that combine clinical, medical, and human sciences into a powerful, innovative, and socially accountable program. Upon completion of the program, graduates will have earned a degree equivalent to all other Canadian medical schools and be ready to undertake postgraduate training anywhere in Canada albeit with a special affinity for training and clinical practice in northern urban, rural, and remote communities.
