Program Information

School:Northern Ontario School of Medicine
Field of Study:Medicine (MD)
Description:The four-year MD curriculum is split into three phases:
Phase 1 (years 1 and 2) involves a sequence of 11 modules with ongoing community integrated learning;
Phase 2 (year 3) involves students undertaking an eight-month community-based longitudinal clerkship; and
Phase 3 (year 4) consists of seven specialist clerkship rotations in larger hospital settings.

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.
