Ottawa-Shanghai Joint School of Medicine Logo

The Ottawa-Shanghai Joint School of Medicine (OSJSM) is the result of an equal partnership between the Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine (SJTUSM) and the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine (uOttawa). As the world’s first Sino-Canadian Joint Medical School, the OSJSM introduces North American undergraduate medical education (UGME) to China and aims to become a bi-national model partnership for the internationalization of medical education. 

Established collaboratively as a branch campus of the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine, OSJSM’s UGME program confers a Bachelors degree of Clinical Medicine from the SJTUSM to students who have successfully completed the required courses and exams in accordance with SJTU requirements. A dual-degree program (Bachelors degree of Clinical Medicine from SJTUSM and MD degree from uOttawa), which would be conferred to students from each Faculty of Medicine upon specific additional requirements, is being considered by the two partner universities.
