We are a medical school, born in 1868, that teaches scientific excellence and humanity in medicine, a school that trains doctors to be accomplished clinicians, compassionate caregivers, good communicators, and balanced individuals.
Areas of Expertise
We move research to the classroom, the bedside, and the community as quickly as possible. Dalhousie medical school faculty members make their internationally recognized clinical and research expertise available whenever and wherever such help is needed. This expertise is vital to the ongoing and future delivery of quality health care in the Maritime Provinces.
In the first two years of the M.D. program, students work predominantly in small groups under the guidance of tutors, examining clinical cases relevant to the various units of study. This training is supplemented by lectures and by hands on training in the Learning Resource Centre, a centre that provides some of the most comprehensive practical medical training in the country, with a simulated patient program and a procedural skills lab.
