    Course Curriculum :

    The four-year MD Program curriculum is organized around five themes that connect learning and assessment into a single, integrated curriculum. My program engaged in a combination of small and large group learning, practical and lab learning, and significant community-based experiences that combine clinical, medical, and human sciences into a powerful, innovative, and socially accountable program developed around NOSM?s Academic Principles and Vision, Mission, and Values. Upon completion of the Program, graduates will have earned an MD degree and are ready and able to undertake postgraduate training anywhere in Canada, albeit, with a special affinity for training and clinical practice in northern urban, rural, remote, Indigenous, and Francophone communities.

    Exams :

    I wanted to learn to communicate with patients and colleagues, make observations about patients, gather information, and analyze data in order to arrive at medical judgments. I was keen to learn this course as I wanted to be a doctor after completing my studies. I was required to submit my internet-based TOEFL score of 97. The documents required for my admission were my official transcripts, two years of work experience, three letters of recommendation, and an identification certificate.
