NOSM, UHearst to become independent degree-granting institutions in April

Northern Ontario School of Medicine University and the Université de Hearst will become independent degree-granting institutions as of April 1, 2022. Both institutions now possess independent governance and administration, which gives them the flexibility to expand and launch programs for students in northern Ontario. “This is a profound and historic moment for the NOSM community, and its impact will be felt across northern Ontario and beyond,” said NOSM University President Dr Sarita Verma. UHearst President Luc Bussières also expressed excitement about the decision. “Becoming fully independent, an important aspiration for our establishment, is a significant milestone,” said Bussières. “We will pursue the work we started 70 years ago with the entire Francophonie. We will greatly benefit from this new support from the government of Ontario.” ON Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
