The Northern Ontario School of Medicine is passing the torch to a new dean and CEO.
Dr. Sarita Verma has been appointed to be the schools next leader taking over from founding dean Dr. Roger Strasser.
She comes to NOSM from the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada where she is the Vice President of Education.
Lakehead University President Moira McPherson says “we welcome Dr. Verma to her new role and recognize the incredible impact Dr. Strasser has made over the past 17 years in establishing NOSM with the goal of making access to quality health care a reality for all Northern Ontarians.”
Dr. Verma begins her new role at the school of medicine July the first and says she is “grateful for the opportunity.”
