Leadership - 2018 Annual Report

On behalf of Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine, I would like to present you with our 2018 Annual Report, which reflects on our collective accomplishments, milestones and breakthroughs achieved this past year.
In this report, you will learn about our diverse partnerships with local and international organizations; our award-winning faculty and learners; and our innovative research at the helm of ground-breaking discoveries. 
2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the medical school and events were held across the country to celebrate. At the end of the anniversary year, we announced the conclusion of our Building a Healthy Tomorrow Campaign where we surpassed our $5 million fundraising goal. Both of these momentous occasions are highlighted in the report.  
Guiding our path forward is the faculty’s five-year strategic plan, Destination Excellence, which was launched in December 2017 with implementation beginning in January 2018. The plan allows us to have a shared vision and set of goals that will guide our work in education, research, social accountability and community engagement.

As we look towards the future, we’d like to thank you for being on this journey with us as we continue to advance health through medical education and research.
Dr. Margaret Steele
Dean, Faculty of Medicine
