Our Regional Health Authorities are very focused on recruiting YOU - Memorial University Medical Students and Post-Graduate Residents. One reason is the quality of the contribution you are already making to the health care system in this province. Secondly, our statistics consistently prove that retention of physicians in the province is strongly influenced by our ability to attract NL graduates and residents. Early discussions with the Vice President of Medical Services about practicing throughout the province upon completion of your training are important and very necessary. Contact with Regional Recruiters is encouraged.
