In NOSM’s first year as a university, we are proud of the collaboration across disciplines that fostered partnerships across Northern Ontario, nationally, and internationally. Notably, we celebrated the launch of the Centre for Social Accountability—a truly interdisciplinary research centre, and the only centre of its kind. With the help of partners, we built our research capacity within clinical settings and grew our ability to offer graduate-level training. Our research is enhanced by partnerships, such as the new research agreements signed with Lakehead University and Laurentian University. Our efforts support the priorities of our strategic plan and will work to innovate health professions education, advance social accountability, and transform health human resources planning.

The innovative research of NOSM University faculty shone at national and international conferences in 2022. Locally, the University hosted several events to foster collaboration and research networks for researchers from Northern Ontario that included Divisional Research Seminar Series, the Northern Health Research Conference, and Health Research Town Halls in collaboration with Laurentian University, Lakehead University, Health Sciences North, and Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. These research events provide an opportunity for NOSM University researchers to work together and develop collaborative research that is important for Northern Ontario.
