This Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) will host their 13th week-long summer camps this year 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.
Two camps will be held in Northern Ontario, the first will be at NOSM at Laurentian University from July 9 – 13, and the second will be from July 16 – 20 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 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. Accepted applicants will be notified by NOSM by Friday, May 4 and will be required to submit a non-refundable registration fee of $400.
Interested students are encouraged to visit nosm.ca/campmed.
