As a government strategy, it has repeatedly demonstrated an unparalleled return on investment as we deliver on our mandate to improve access to health care for the people of Northern Ontario.

2023 Research Annual Report

IMPRESSIONS

The 2023 Research Annual Report delves into research at NOSM University. Through an exploration of a wide array of research activities, we highlight the existing and developing collaborations between our clinical and non-clinical faculty, and between our faculty and those at other educational institutions in Northern Ontario, nationally and internationally. 

Researchers and physicians engaging in research are leaving impressions across the region. They are seeing firsthand the profound impact their work can have on both individual patients and the broader community. 

Dr. Gilles Arcand Centre for Health Equity, read the 2022-2023 Annual Report.

Dr. Gilles Arcand Centre for Health Equity

ANNUAL REPORT

It’s been two years since the Centre for Social Accountability was established at NOSM University. It was born of the principle that everyone—regardless of circumstance or geography—has a right to access health-care practitioners who are culturally competent, understand the realities of living in the rural and remote North, and lead with compassion and integrity.

The Temerty Foundation, established by James and Louise Temerty, made a $10 million gift in September 2023 to support NOSM University medical students and to advance and grow social accountability and health equity initiatives. In recognition of this transformational gift, NOSM University’s Centre for Social Accountability was renamed the Dr. Gilles Arcand Centre for Health Equity. This report details the achievement of the Centre’s research activities completed in the past year, impacts across the four pillars, challenges and lessons learned, and future directions.

From Informative to Transformative

THE NOSM UNIVERSITY OF TOMORROW

As we look forward with hope to the post-pandemic era, NOSM University has a window of extraordinary opportunity in which to fundamentally and strategically transform itself to meet the health research, education and health care demands of tomorrow. The turbulence caused by the global COVID-19 crisis touched—and forever changed— every element of work in which we were engaged during this historic time. The crisis revealed that the prevailing medical education paradigm, a legacy of past centuries, is outmoded, and too brittle to bend and adapt to the realities of the day. It also demonstrated the need for research and scientific discovery to respond quickly to the issues of the day, and for evidence-based clinical practice to inform public policy.
