Pre-Med Summer Institute
Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL
Date: July 2-20, 2018

The Pre-Med Summer Institute is one of the Aboriginal Health initiatives of Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine. It is an intensive, non-credit program offered for three weeks (July 2-20, 2018). The institute provides experience in a clinical environment for selected candidates who are thinking seriously about pursuing a career in medicine and who wish to apply for admission to Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine. Candidates are selected through an application process from the First Nations, Inuit and Southern Inuit communities in Newfoundland and Labrador. Selectees will be placed at the Labrador Health Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. During the three weeks, participants will converse with physicians, medical residents and students and have some exposure to various health care situations.
