Pre-Conference event info can be found below

NOSM University is pleased to bring together four of its signature events—Northern Constellations, Northern Connections, Northern Lights, and NOSM University’s Achievement Celebration—in one centralized location on May 2-4, 2024 at the Delta Toronto Airport and Conference Centre.

Allowing for more extensive collaboration and networking across the NOSM University community, CEPD’s vision is to inspire a passion for teaching and a joy of learning. This conference will inspire excellence in medical and health professional education through innovation and knowledge translation from our own community of faculty and preceptors. The conference will continue offering sessions based on the pillars of faculty and preceptor development, while adding new content such as a ‘quick hit’ session on important northern medical topics and sessions designed specifically for NOSM University faculty, preceptors, and learners.

Embracing the opportunity of the gathering of our NOSM University community, we are excited to also announce the return to in-person delivery of Northern Lights, CEPD’s annual networking and professional development event focusing on further developing leadership skills.

Bringing together these four events will maximize productivity while travelling and support our work towards more successful and sustainable conferences. The many enriching opportunities provided by an expanded gathering of our NOSM University community fills us with excitement and anticipation for these upcoming events.

We look forward to welcoming faculty, preceptors, learners, and staff to the 2024 conference! More information to come.
