Professional Development Opportunities

Ongoing learning

New course in humanism & professionalism

With the help of recent funding from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada our Medical Humanities HEALS program is now coordinating and implementing a new faculty development course in humanism & professionalism, open to all Dalhousie Medical School faculty who teach residents and fellows.

Further information about the humanism and professionalism course will be available in the fall of 2014.

Bringing HEALS to an international audience

International Medical Educators eXchange (IMEX) aims to provide an international orientation on medical education for senior faculty members in medical schools. It is an initiative of five medical schools in Europe and Canada:

  • University Medical Center Utrecht in The Netherlands
  • McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Canada
  • Karolinska Institutet in Sweden
  • Dalhousie Medical School in Canada
  • St. Georges University Faculty of Medicine London in the U.K.

The schools involved share a strong interest in research and development in medical education. Dalhousie's Medical Humanities-HEALS program provides teaching sessions for IMEX faculty.
