NLMA Resident Travel Award


Funded by the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) through its charity the Physicians’ Legacy Foundation, two awards valued at $1,500 each will be granted annually to assist residents with the costs associated with travel to a conference. One travel award will be granted to a family medicine resident and the other to a specialty resident.


Applicants must submit an application to the postgraduate medical education office describing the educational opportunity at the conference, and highlighting if the applicant is presenting a poster or a learning session. Preference will be given to residents attending a conference with a focus that overlaps with one of the strategic paths of the NLMA: promotion of rural and remote health, physician health and wellness, sustainable health systems, or physician leadership and professionalism. Eligible residents must be members of the NLMA and can only receive this award once.


The award will be granted by the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine on the recommendation of the Associate Dean, Postgraduate Medical Education.
