Medical Education in New Brunswick
Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick (DMNB) admits 40 New Brunswick students each year, providing them with the opportunity to study medicine in their home province at various different teaching sites.
For the first two years of your studies, you’ll attend classes in Saint John. Then, for your final two, you’ll complete clerkships in Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton, Waterville, or Saint John.
Connect with peers in Halifax
As a DMNB student, you are located in New Brunswick, but you'll spend class time with your Halifax-based classmates using state-of-the-art videoconferencing technology. You're one MD class, you use the exact same curriculum, and you all graduate with a medical degree from Dalhousie University.

In June 2008, an agreement was signed by Dalhousie University, the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and the Government of New Brunswick to create the Dalhousie Medical Education Program in New Brunswick. UNB Saint John is DMNB’s host facility, providing infrastructure, student support services, and library facilities.
DMNB welcomed the charter class of 2014 in September 2010 during the official opening ceremony. By 2012, DMNB had opened clinical teaching sites in Fredericton, Miramichi, and Moncton, and the Waterville site located in the Upper River Valley Hospital soon followed in June 2014.
