The Anesthesiology program at NOSM strives to be outstanding. Entering our nineth year, this program has grown out of a decade of training Royal College residents.
Highlights of the NOSM Anesthesiology program include a proven track record at the Royal College Examinations, unparalleled clinical experience, skilled and enthusiastic faculty members.
Other strengths of the program relate to the innovative, comprehensive curriculum and assessment process. Residents in this program receive frequent feedback to help acquire lifelong, reflective learning skills ensuring that each resident meets their learning objectives and reaches their full potential.
The academic program is heavily based on active learning through simulation and problem-based cases. This program is constantly evaluated and modified to ensure a high-quality academic and clinical experience. We are using a unique, modular framework to implement CBD to help organize and guide the residents’ progress while allowing flexibility.
Residents in this program will have a number of opportunities unique to Northern Ontario. While the majority of the training takes place in Sudbury, the opportunity for clinical experiences in various centers across the North, from small rural hospitals to other major centers such as Thunder Bay, provides a unique chance to understand how anesthesia is provided in a variety of settings and provides exposure to potential career opportunities.
As a new and growing program, resident feedback is an integral part of shaping this program for the future. This is a program that is extremely responsive to resident input.
In addition to clinical research opportunities, residents have a unique ability to engage in medical education scholarship in this cutting-edge program.
Northern Ontario is not dependent on resident service to function. Residents are an integral part of the perioperative team but are not necessary for the day-to-day functioning of the hospital. This means we are all about education! The service to education balance is very much in favour of the resident.
Residents in this program will work in a collegial group, dedicated to outstanding clinical care and education, living in a growing city with lots of opportunities for outdoor living.
In addition to the above, other aspects of the NOSM program that set it apart include:
