About NOSM Education Research Communities

Integrated Community Experience

The Integrated Community Experience (ICE) provides first-year students with direct exposure to various Indigenous communities across Northern Ontario. By living and learning in an Indigenous community for a four-week period, students are exposed to the realities of life and health care delivery in Indigenous communities. Immersion in these remote, rural Indigenous communities broadens students’ cultural awareness and strengthens their communications skills. These are integral skills for effective medical practice in Northern Ontario.
