Family Medicine residents at Memorial University choose one of five residency Streams when they apply through the CaRMS Process. Our residents are placed in one of: EastFam, CenFam, WestFam, NorFam, and NunaFam Streams based on the area they want to experience. Each Stream offers a unique rural and remote learning environment specific to the communities they serve.
Each Stream has a Stream cabinet responsible for leading the residency model in their Stream. A Stream cabinet is made up of a Stream Lead and representatives responsible for Curriculum, Evaluations, Promotions, and Assessment, Evidence-Based Medicine and Faculty Development and one or more Academic Program Administrators. Cabinet members are experts in their field and are located in the communities where our residents will live and work.
Stream cabinets collaborate with each other, with faculty and staff of the Discipline of Family Medicine, and members of the community to provide our residents with the best possible postgraduate experience. Many of our residents develop close relationships with our cabinet members, preceptors, and staff as they work through their program.
