OMSA NORM Application (2018-2019)
The Northern Ontario and Rural Medicine (NORM) Committee aims to redefine the “norm” via three primary aims:
1. Acknowledging the social, economic and geographical barriers to medical student engagement, the NORM facilitates student support and engagement in OMSA initiatives focusing on students from Northern Ontario.
2. Acknowledging the gaps in accessibility and provision of healthcare to rural and Northern Ontario, with specific interest give towards Indigenous populations.
3. Acknowledging students studying in Southern Ontario who have limited access to opportunities in rural healthcare.

The NORM committee will consist of 4 working groups, namely the Northern and Rural Student Engagement, Northern Ontario and Rural Health Advocacy, Indigenous Health Advocacy, and Urban Student Engagement working groups. The composition of the committee will be determined by a yearly anonymized application process where 5 new members of the committee will be chosen.

The following five positions are available:
NORM Co-Chair 2018-2019: 1-year term
Northern and Rural Student Engagement Junior Chair: 2-year term
Northern Ontario and Rural Health Advocacy Junior Chair: 2-year term
Urban Student Engagement Junior Chair: 2-year term
