What brought me to MUN? What keeps me at MUN?

After completing my critical care fellowship and Masters of Education, I secured an academic position at University Health Network/University of Toronto. When a position opened up at Eastern Health I jumped at the opportunity to transfer to MUN. Memorial affords a balanced combination of clinical and academic prospects.
