Distributed Medical Education

Distributed Medical Education is a hallmark of the Faculty of Medicine, highlighting the communities we serve across Newfoundland and Labrador. 

The Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador, sets to enhance the health of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador by educating physicians and health scientists; by conducting research in clinical and basic medical sciences and applied health sciences; and by promoting the skills and attitudes of lifelong learning. Please see the Faculty of Medicine's Strategic Plan Destination Excellence to learn more about our mission and vision.

Our tradition has been to encourage the education of physicians with exemplary skills for rural and regional practice. This is achieved with the support of our full-time and part-time faculty within the academic and community centres as evidenced by the success of our undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional development programs in producing clinicians that serve the needs of rural Newfoundland and Labrador and Canada. This can be enhanced by working closely with our clinical partners in Eastern, Central, Western and Labrador-Grenfell Health Authorities to integrate and optimize the continuum of education, research and clinical care.
