Thunder Bay Ready to Welcome Health Care Students Home


December 13, 2012 – The City of Thunder Bay is encouraging upcoming health care professionals to choose Thunder Bay as their career location. The City will host the 12th Annual Home for the Holidays Health Care Student Reception at the new Superior North Emergency Medical Services District Headquarters at 105 S. Junot Ave on Friday, Dec. 21, from 12 – 2 pm. 

The Health Care Student Reception is an annual event for students from Thunder Bay studying medicine or other health care fields. The reception is designed to encourage students to return or stay in Thunder Bay to pursue their careers. Students are provided the opportunity to meet with local health care representatives and start discussing employment options. This reception attracts a wide cross-section of students who are studying in fields such as medicine, nursing, nutrition, pharmacy, rehabilitation and speech language pathology along with many others.

“There is no place like home,” said Mayor Keith Hobbs. “Our community is the home of world-class health care facilities and we encourage health care  students from Thunder Bay to consider career opportunities in their hometown once they complete their education.”

 “This is a fun event where the students reconnect with one another, network with health care representatives and learn about potential career opportunities,” said Cheryl Armstrong, Community Relations Coordinator. “They will also enjoy a lunch and will be able to tour the beautiful new EMS Headquarters.”

The 2012 Health Care Student Reception is presented by the City of Thunder Bay Community & Emergency Services and supported by the following sponsors: RBC Royal Bank, Superior North EMS and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine Thunder Bay Local NOSM Group.
