NorFam (Northern Newfoundland and Labrador) Stream

The NorFam (Northern Newfoundland and Labrador) Stream is the perfect match for candidates who wish to pursue rural and remote training. 

The Northern Family Medicine (NorFam) experience was established in Goose Bay, Labrador in 1991 as one of the country’s first rural remote teaching programs.

The NorFam Stream offers an intensive two-year rural and northern family medicine residency to prepare physicians to be confident and competent in rural and remote medicine.  

While gaining excellent exposure in Indigenous health, rural, and remote medicine, residents will have the opportunity to enhance their experiences by completing a number of rotations in NL and/or NB (e.g. Internal Medicine, ICU, Obstetrics and Gynecology).

For more information see our Goose Bay (NorFam) Brochure.
