    Doctors ,who are trained in Newfoundland ,should stay for at least 10yrs after Med school.Newfoundland must open up more spaces at MUN (double what it trains now) for locally trained doctors to fill the future needs of its people.Foreign Doctors are going to leave Newfoundland for greener pastures as soon as they can get an opening for their skills in upper Canada.Newfoundland is just a training ground for those guys.They have no loyalty to the place and will move as soon as they can to be around their fellow brethren on the mainland.You're just a rest stop along the way. With all the oil wealth coming in to the coffers there, there should be a lot of pay incentives and fringe benefits,more so than most of the other provinces in the country, for training prospective doctors who are locally grown?.I don't quite understand what's going on? With all those dollars being generated and pumped into the local economy up there, I would think that Newfoundland could offer a lot more than any of the other provinces in the way of quality of life , pay and benefits for any practicing young physician who wants to stay at home and help his/her own people?And given that Newfs love their homeland so much it shouldn't be hard to accomplish what I suggest?Just a thought!
