Canada, NL bilateral health care agreement includes new seats at Memorial

The Government of Canada and Government of Newfoundland and Labrador have struck a $256M bilateral agreement to improve health care that will include investments in medical training at Memorial University. The three-year agreement seeks to improve NL’s health care system by expanding access to family health services, increasing the number of health workers and health services, increasing mental health and substance use services, and modernizing health data systems. As part of these efforts, Memorial will receive new undergraduate medical education seats and new Family Medical Residency positions for international medical graduates.
