Length of Residence in North

Recommended Posts


Well, people can speculate on this quite a bit, but from how I see it...the FOUNDER of the school, Dr. Roger Strasser is quite involved in research. One of his more recent articles suggests that students who were not raised 5+ years in a rural setting will most likely not stick around and practice medicine in rural settings post-training...so if this is what the founding dean believes. Check it out for yourselves (pubmed):

This has been covered in previous posts .... Do some searching.


As far as what has been told to people is that it is 10 years.


After 5 years I believe you get some additional points as well ...


Im about 7 year 10 months off from benefiting from being considered a NO resident :-)
