Distributed Medical Education

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

The Faculty of Medicine 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. 

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 Newfoundland and Labrador Health Services to integrate and optimize the continuum of education, research and clinical care.
