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, will mark the thirteenth 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.

Held July 9 – 13, 2018 at NOSM at Laurentian University in Sudbury and from July 16 – 20, 2018 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; CSI; physiology and anatomy; suturing, Francophone and Indigenous health and culture, and, much more!

NOSM is currently seeking interested high school students who will be attending Grade 10 and 11 in September 2018. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 11, 2018.
