Medical education in New Brunswick
Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick (DMNB) admits 30 New Brunswick students each year, providing them with the opportunity to study medicine in their home province at a variety of different teaching sites.
In the first two years of your studies, you’ll attend classes in Saint John, and in your final two years, you’ll complete clerkships in Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton and Waterville, as well as in Saint John.
Connect with peers in Halifax
As a DMNB student, you are located in New Brunswick, but you spend class time with your Halifax-based classmates using state-of-the-art videoconferencing technology. It’s one MD class, using the exact same curriculum, and all students graduate with a medical degree from Dalhousie University.
Residency training in New Brunswick
Dalhousie Medical School also offers a large component of its postgraduate (residency) medical training in New Brunswick, through the Horizon Health Network. Find out more about Dalhousie’s residency training. Students from both Halifax and DMNB can have rotations throughout New Brunswick.
In June 2008, an agreement was signed by Dalhousie University, the University of New Brunswick (UNB) and the Government of New Brunswick, creating the Dalhousie Medical Education Program in New Brunswick. UNB Saint John is DMNB’s host facility, providing infrastructure, student support services and library facilities.
The charter class of 2014 was welcomed in September 2010 during the official opening ceremony. DMNB clinical teaching sites in Fredericton, Miramichi, and Moncton opened by 2012. The Waterville site located in the Upper River Valley Hospital opened in June 2014.
