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.

Cancer can affect any of us.

However, some groups of folks experience extra hardship or barriers. The LGBTQ community is among them.
