Province Adds Seats to Memorial University’s Medical School

The Provincial Government is adding five more seats to Memorial University’s Undergraduate Medical Education Program for residents of the province.

The seats will be added in September 2023. This will bring the total number of seats to 65.

The Faculty of Medicine accepts 80 students annually into the four-year undergraduate program, including three seats, which are reserved specifically for Indigenous students.

The province is hoping that the addition will retain doctors in the province to address the shortage.

Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine has also recently been granted two awards by the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada for its efforts in graduating physicians to work in rural areas of the province – the Keith Award and the Rural Medical Education Award.
