Overview

The Faculty is housed within the Medical Education Centre adjacent to the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s, a modern facility which also includes the adult and women’s hospital, the Janeway Children’s Hospital, and the H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre, plus specialized units and support services.

At the Memorial University of Newfoundland, the graduate programs in the Faculty of Medicine are structured to create an academic environment conducive to research training excellence. The programs are designed to provide formal instruction as well as to promote informal exchange in areas of health research. 

Research

  • A key component of health care is ongoing research. Research programs in the Faculty ofMedicine extend over three major divisions: BioMedical Sciences, Clinical Disciplines, and Community Health and Humanities.
  • Leading research programs are vital for the continued development of the Faculty of Medicine as well as the attraction of qualified specialists.
  • Human genetics is particularly relevant to the health of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador because of the major success of the research carried out in recent years in the area of identifying genes associated with inherited diseases.
  • The Memorial model for clinical research identifies the problem in terms of the patient, family and community, searches for the biomedical basis of the disease, and then develops the best clinical care approach while addressing the ethical issues and informing health policy.

Programme Structure

  • There are ten areas of concentration in graduate studies in the Faculty of Medicine: Applied Health Services Research, Cancer and Development, Cardiovascular and Renal Sciences, Clinical Epidemiology, Community Health, Human Genetics, Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Neurosciences, Public Health, and Health Ethics. 
  • These programs are based upon focal areas of health research within the Faculty and are dependent upon a critical mass of actively engaged faculty researchers in these areas. Each area of concentration has a program coordinator and includes a core of graduate courses appropriate to the area of health research and mechanisms for formal and informal exchange of research ideas (journal clubs, seminar series, visiting speakers program).
