Northern Ontario School of Medicine - Internal Medicine - Thunder Bay
- The NOSM Internal Medicine Program is a core Royal College IM Program that allows you the choice to apply to a Medical Subspecialty Program after 3 years of training or continuing in the Program to become an excellent, well-rounded General Internist, confident and capable of practising in a Northern, rural or remote community.
- We are a small Program, which allows you unparalleled opportunities to get to know your peers and the faculty, learn first-hand from the staff, perform procedures even in your first year, and develop a flexible schedule to match your learning needs.
- Based in Northern Ontario communities varying from smaller towns to cities, you will gain experience with first-hand exposure to the full spectrum of IM disease entities, providing learning opportunities beyond a text-book. You will see patients with conditions you thought you would only read about, and may be the physician to diagnoses them.
- There is unmatched involvement and support from the IM faculty at all sites, who have your success at heart and work hard to help you achieve your goals, to the extent of personally contacting other schools to help you arrange electives and recommending you for Subspecialty matches.
- NOSM supports you as you travel to and live in communities away from your home base for your core rotations.
- A clean and green environment with affordable housing and excellent health and social care.
- Each community has multiple recreational opportunities to explore and enjoy outdoor activities.
- Sudbury and Thunder Bay have a wide range of cultural, educational and shopping amenities, steps away from your home, with very little traffic.
