The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) maintains a commitment to providing information to rural, remote, indigenous, and Francophone youth about health careers.
This year marks the 14th time that NOSM has hosted week-long summer camps for high-school students interested in a career in health care.
Formerly known as NOSM's Health Sciences Summer Camp, “CampMed” features new branding and a renewed focus on four core learning areas: interprofessionalism, leadership, culture, and clinical skills.
Set to be held July 8-12 at NOSM at Laurentian University in Sudbury, and from July 15-19 at NOSM at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, “CampMed” provides high-school students with an opportunity to explore a variety of health-care careers, obtain hands-on experience, and find a student mentor.
Camp activities include casting and X-rays, forensic medicine (as in CSI), physiology and anatomy, suturing, and much more!
NOSM currently is seeking interested high-school students who will be attending Grade 10 and 11 this September.
The deadline to apply is Thursday, April 11.
Accepted applicants will be notified by NOSM by Tuesday, April 30, 2019 and will be required to submit a non-refundable registration fee of $400.
Interested students are encouraged to visit nosm.ca/campmed for more info.
If you are interested in supporting a student, donations can be made to ensure all Northern Ontario youth—regardless of where they live—have an equal opportunity to learn about a career in a health profession.
