NOSM Appoints Academic Director for its new Centre for Social Accountability

NOSM Appoints Academic Director for its new Centre for Social Accountability

Northern Ontario School of Medicine

NORTHERN, ONTARIO   ~~~~~~~  June 23, 2021  (LSN)  Dr. Sarita Verma, Dean, President and CEO of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Erin Cameron, PhD, as the inaugural Academic Director of the Centre for Social Accountability beginning a three-year term on July 1, 2021. Her appointment marks an important milestone in the development of the School’s new Centre for Social Accountability (CFSA).

Erin is a well-known faculty member and an active academic researcher at NOSM who is highly regarded for her focus on innovative, socially accountable medical education research,” says Dr. David Marsh, Associate Dean, Research Innovation and International Relations at NOSM. “Her track record in fostering strong multidisciplinary research collaborations with broad impact will help guide the Centre forward.”
 
The Centre for Social Accountability is the only one of its kind in Canada with a core mandate to improve the health of Northern Ontarians, reaching beyond NOSM’s founding commitment to be socially accountable in education, research programs and in advocacy for health equity. Erin Cameron says the Centre is well poised with the support of a network of researchers, partners and contributors already in place.

“I am looking forward to this new role. The Centre for Social Accountability will be the frontrunner to improving equity, access, and population health outcomes that are sustainable with new opportunities and research that are now underway,” says Erin Cameron, who is currently an Associate Professor in Medical Education and Curriculum Development at NOSM. As an educational leader, she represents NOSM on multiple national groups including the Canadian Medical Education Research Centre Directors Group and the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada’s (AFMC’s) Social Accountability Network.

“Professor Cameron will assemble a team and engage all NOSM stakeholders in examining the idea of social accountability. The Centre is mandated to lead in socially accountable approaches to care, education, advocacy, social justice and change for the improvement of Northern Ontario’s health. I cannot think of a better leader and passionate researcher to take this Centre forward,” says Dr. Verma.

 

This new interdisciplinary Centre for Social Accountability (CFSA) will be dedicated to leading-edge population health, primary care research to innovate new models of education, incubate research in social accountability and advocate about issues that address inequitable health care in the North such as poverty, water insecurity and climate change. The CFSA was made possible with support of a $1.2 million donation from Dr. Hugh Robertson, Emeritus Professor of Radiology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and Clinical Professor of Radiology at Tulane University Medical Centre in New Orleans. The donation was earmarked to address social accountability, health inequity, advocacy for marginalized populations and access to care in Northern Ontario.
