Our Mission and Vision
Medicor manages clinical research studies for physicians to improve the health of their patients and the people of Northern Ontario. Through ethical and compliant clinical research practices we ensure the safety, wellbeing and privacy of their patients.
By linking physicians to projects that are Health Canada and Research Ethics Board approved we provide an arm's-length relationship between sponsors and physicians which facilitates an unbiased model for the development of innovative new medical treatments.

Our Clinical Research Coordinator internship program is the only Northern Ontario Heritage Fund supported program of its kind for new post secondary science graduates in the North.
By fulfilling our mandate to advance research in Northern Ontario and establish the North as a centre of research excellence recognized globally we provide; patients with opportunities to try new medications and gain insights into better managing their health, a seamless process for physicians to practice research medicine, a platform to create partnerships between the medical community, hospitals and academic institutions, and career opportunities to post secondary graduates from our community.
