NL expands capacity by five seats at Memorial Medical school

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has announced that it will be expanding Memorial University’s Undergraduate Medical Education Program by five seats in September 2023. The new seats are meant to provide a long-term solution for NL’s doctor shortage, with a goal of increasing the number of students who will stay in the province to practice. “Memorial’s medical school has a rich history of training physicians to meet the evolving health care needs of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians for decades,” said Memorial President Dr Vianne Timmons. “We are pleased that additional seats will be set aside for Newfoundland and Labrador students to increase the number of locally trained physicians for the benefit of our communities.” CBC News| Nation Talk Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
