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.
- 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.
