What brought me to MUN? What keeps me at MUN?

Upon completion of my training I was introduced to Irish physician working at MUN who had high praises for the university. I moved here in 2003 after being offered a position, with my wife and two sons. I found city and work place very cordial and welcoming. We settled quickly and enjoy local trails and community involvement. My wife enjoys working here as Family physician and our children are fully engaged with local community.
