The late Dr. Meridith Marks was a MUNMED graduate in the class of 1987 who spent most of her professional life in Ottawa. Hailing from Cape Ray, N.L. she rose to national prominence as an advocate for high quality scholarship in medical education. Meridith developed a national reputation as a mentor of young scholars and the Meridith Marks Mentorship was established in her memory through generous donations by her classmates, friends, family and professors.
