NOSM’s Employee and Family Assistance Program is offered by Morneau Shepell and is available to all students, across NOSM’s wider campus of Northern Ontario. This is a confidential support service. They offer full access to face-to-face, telephone, video and

Academic challenges are common and you are not alone. These challenges present an opportunity to learn, grow, and access additional assistance. Your preceptors, colleagues, site coordinators and program manager are all on your side and want you to succeed.
It is important to be open and honest about the challenges you are experiencing. The first step is asking for help. It is better to ask for help early then to let a difficulty persist, so that support can be provided to you right away. First, discuss your difficulty with your preceptor to see if he/she can provide additional assistance and/or resources. When academic difficulties persist, reach out to your site coordinator and/or the program manager.

At all times you should endeavor to protect yourself from harm at work through proper use
of protective equipment and safety practices. Nonetheless, incidents may occur despite your best efforts. Therefore, it is important to review and understand the safety protocols of the institution in which you are on placement. If any injury occurs, follow the steps below:
Step 1: If necessary, immediately obtain first aid and report to the nearest emergency department. Identify yourself as a NOSM dietetic student on placement.
Step 2: At the first opportunity, report the injury to the Occupational Health Department at your work site. Each of the main teaching hospitals has its own injury protocol, which must be adhered to in addition to the NOSM protocol. If there is no Occupational Health Department where the injury occurred, report the injury to your preceptor.
