NOSM U releases new training module to support equitable access to medical care for Francophones


NOSM University has developed a new specialized training module for professionals working in the primary-care sector in order to enhance their capacity to provide specialized services to Francophone patients in Northern Ontario. The complementary course was developed in collaboration with the Réseau du mieux-être francophone du Nord de l’Ontario and will be provided through the Active Offer Training website. “NOSM University is expanding its efforts to support Francophone medical students who will practice in French, as well as support Francophile and Anglophone medical students in recognizing and providing linguistic and culturally sensitive care,” said NOSM U President Dr. Sarita Verma.
