MUN celebrates opening of new Medical Education Centre

October 2, 2014

Memorial University has officially opened its new Medical Education Centre, housed in the new Faculty of Medicine expansion building. The new building and centre allow MUN to increase the number of medical students admitted every year and will provide opportunities for enhanced instruction and training, including the state-of-the-art Clinical Learning and Simulation Centre. “Experience in the simulation lab will result in improved performance, quicker response time and increased confidence and competence,” said James Rourke, Dean of Medicine. “In the long run this will improve patient safety and promote the teamwork, communication and collaboration that is so critical to health-care delivery.” The government of Newfoundland and Labrador contributed more than $21 M for the project. MUN News Release
