Pre-Med Summer Institute for Aspiring Aboriginal Students

The Pre-Med Summer Institute is an intensive, non-credit program offered to pre-medical students. The institute is jointly sponsored by the Memorial Faculty of Medicine and the Labrador-Grenfell Health Authority. Co-support is provided by the following Aboriginal groups: Innu Nation of Labrador, Miawpukek First Nation, Nunatsiavut, NunatuKavut and the Qalipu First Nation.
Launched in 2011, the institute provides experience in a clinical environment for selected candidates who are serious about pursuing a career in medicine and who wish to apply for admission to the Faculty of Medicine.

For three weeks, the successful candidates will be placed in the Labrador Health Centre, Happy Valley-Goose Bay where they will interact with physicians, medical residents and medical students and learn about the medical profession.

Please Note: This is a pre-medicine experience. Institute participants are not medical students. Successful admittance and participation in this program does not guarantee that the student will be accepted for the medicine program at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
