School Overview

School Info

A new medical school for the whole of Northern Ontario, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine is a joint initiative of Laurentian University, Sudbury and Lakehead University, Thunder Bay. With main campuses in Thunder Bay and Sudbury, the School has multiple teaching and research sites distributed across Northern Ontario, including large and small communities. NOSM contributes to improving the health of people in Northern Ontario.


Our innovative undergraduate or MD program involves students learning in small groups, much of the time in distributed community-based learning sites supported by broadband communication information technology. The curriculum is clinically driven, while ensuring students gain a strong grounding in core knowledge and skills including the basic sciences.


NOSM has two state-of-the-art research labs, one at its east campus at Laurentian University in Sudbury, and one at its west campus at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay. In addition, the School works in partnership with universities, private sector organizations, and health centres across the North to facilitate research initiatives which have a strong focus on the health issues of Northern communities.

"Perhaps the most interesting question was the non-disclosure statement that I signed... therefore prohibiting me from discussing questions in detail.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
