NOSM Board of Directors
its inception, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine has proudly defied
traditional health professional education.
of a grassroots movement by Northern Ontarians in need of health professionals,
NOSM is a medical school like no other. No other Canadian medical school is a
joint initiative between two universities—in this case, Lakehead University in
Thunder Bay and Laurentian University in Sudbury. No other Canadian medical
school provides training in more than 90 communities across a geographic
expanse of 800,000 square kilometres. Rather than taking an off-the-shelf
approach to delivering health professional programs modeled after traditional
methods, NOSM has developed novel education strategies to meet the needs of
the Board of Directors
NOSM’s Board of Directors is comprised of 19 members who reflect the
geographic and demographic diversity of Northeastern and Northwestern Ontario,
including Aboriginal, Francophone, and rural and remote communities. It is
responsible for the corporate governance and fiscal management of the School.
Membership of the Board of Directors is drawn widely to achieve the balance of
skills and expertise required to enable the Board to fulfill its governance
NOSM Directors must demonstrate: knowledge of the role of governance in
a dynamic corporate environment; the ability to offer expertise in a variety of
governance-related areas and to make informed decisions relating to the
business and strategy of the School; effective communication skills; commitment
to the time required to travel to and attend Board and committee meetings; and,
the absence of real or perceived conflict of interest.
