Discipline of Medicine

The Discipline of Medicine is the largest clinical discipline in the Faculty of Medicine; it encompasses areas of Internal Medicine including Cardiology, Clinical Research, Dermatology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Geriatrics, Hematology, Infectious Diseases, Nephrology, Neurology, Respiratory Medicine, Rheumatology, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.



St. John’s is home for my family and I. It is very fulfilling to contribute to the institution that provided me with my training and to work with colleagues I’ve known for years.

The strength of the founder population for genetic research was a prime reason for coming to Newfoundland and to Memorial.  The population is also a major reason for staying. The people are generous, stalwart, intelligent, dependable helpful and kind and I think I have learned more from them in contexts far removed from genetics than I thought was possible. 

I came to MUN from Dalhousie in 2010.  I am originally from Halifax.  I like the independence I have here, to develop my research and teaching program.  The highlights of living in St. John’s are the music, and the East Coast Trail. 

I have always aspired to pursue a teaching and research career in Medicine. My appointment here at the Memorial University is definitely an exciting opportunity for me to get my career started.

I came to Memorial for the opportunity, the people and the adventure.  I wanted to be a part of an organization and a Discipline that was growing and developing.  I am grateful to be able to have a role to help foster that development.  Beyond that the opportunity to be able to have the culture, music and dramatic land and sea scapes of Newfoundland and Labrador at my doorstep is a great fringe benefit!

Receiving the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation Professorship in Biomechanics was the spark that brought me to MUN and NL.  On arriving from Ontario, it was immediately clear that this place really does have a bit of magic.   MUN has lived up to its solid reputation and I have been so impressed with the warm and collaborative nature of the staff, faculty and students. The fresh air, proximity to the ocean and the scenic hiking trails has only added to my experience. 

As the song goes, “I’m a Newfoundlander born and bred,” so Memorial seemed a natural fit to me. From rural Newfoundland, I moved to the big city to pursue studies at MUN in the late 80s. I always enjoyed the feeling on the St. John’s campus; I still do.
