Board of Directors

Leading with experience

The Dalhousie Medical Alumni Association (DMAA) is proud of our committed, hands-on Board of Directors. Fourteen of our board members are graduates of Dalhousie Medical School, which means they have the experience they need to oversee the governance of the association.

We choose our board members with care. They’re selected for their leadership, transparency, commitment and professionalism. We carefully select people we trust to achieve our vision of connecting our alumni, current learners and faculty.
