HEALTH AND DENTAL
Health and Dental Benefits available to postdocs are set out in Article 32 of the Collective Agreement.
Those postdocs who meet the eligibility requirements will pay into and benefit from the University's group insurance plans.
You can find more information about this benefit and access relevant forms on Memorial's Human Resources website.
Health coverage should be available in early April 2014. Until then, international postdoctoral fellows should note the old regulations.
EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Postdoctoral fellows also have access to the University's Employee Assistance Program (EAP), through which they can receive free "Immediate confidential help for any concern."
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUNDING: CREDIT COURSES
Postdoctoral fellows can apply to the Dean of Graduate Studies to have tuition covered by Memorial for a credit course taken at Memorial.
The next deadline is 30 November for a Winter-semester course.
