Faculty of Medicine

Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine is committed to providing the highest standard of medical education and supporting health research with the goal of advancing the health of the people and communities we serve. 

We are leaders in rural medical education and have received national and international awards and recognition. As the only medical school in Newfoundland and Labrador, research that focuses on the need of our communities is a priority. Ground-breaking research has provided important medical discoveries, which have led to improved medical interventions and patient care.

Dean's Notes

Spring is in the air and with the winter semester for our graduate learners now finished, we are looking forward to celebrating our learners who have completed their programs and those who will continue their studies here at Memorial.

It feels as though this has been a rather long winter weather-wise, with multiple snow storms in Atlantic Canada, even though the winter seemed delayed initially. I hope you have been able to stay safe during the stormier days as we get close to spring-like temperatures.

The holiday break is fast approaching! I hope you will have an opportunity to relax and spend time with family and friends, if possible.


On Jan. 30, 2023, the Faculty of Medicine hosted a Resident Research Symposium. Dr. Michael Strong, President of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), visited Memorial University's Faculty of Medicine in person and provided a keynote address for the symposium.

Running gives these two medical learners an opportunity for goal setting outside of academics, a way to make dedicated time for themselves and their friends friends, and a chance to be part of a wonderful community.

Resident doctors share their experiences of practicing medicine in rural Newfoundland and Labrador.
