NOSM featured in Toronto newspaper

Article said med school grads prefer to stay north

Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) got good reviews in the Globe and Mail.

The article, Rural medicine: How a gamble to bring in doctors is paying off by André Picard, appeared on the Globe’s online news service Jan. 14.

It says 94 per cent of NOSM graduates who do a family medicine residency in the North stay here to practise, and 69 per cent of all graduates have opted to work in remote and rural areas, particularly Northern Ontario.
