Nova Scotia Community Hospital Programs
PROGRAMME DANS UN HÔPITAL COMMUNAUTAIRE
Convenient learning opportunities
The Nova Scotia Community Hospital (CHP) programs give you the opportunity for professional development at a hospital near you, limiting disruption to your practice or personal commitments. Discussing local cultures and challenges for change with colleagues provides a unique learning opportunity.
In consultation with Dalhousie Continuing Professional Development (CPD), local practitioners develop the content, objectives, and deliver education in formats most likely to enhance your practice. And since we offer programs in 14 Nova Scotia hospitals, there will be a program nearby that interests you. This program is supported financially by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness. It is occasionally enhanced with pharmaceutical industry sponsorship by means of educational grants.
Please see below for Community Hospital Programs booked for the 2022-23 Academic Year starting in September. Keep posted for new programs as they are booked in all 14 of our Nova Scotia hospital communities.
PLEASE NOTE: Given the uncertainty around COVID-19, CHP this year will adopt a blended module. Some sessions will be delivered virtually, while some will be in-person sessions.
Remember that all physicians are welcome to attend any accredited program; you are not restricted to attend only the programs in the hospital you have privileges in.
The weekly "Current Events" e-blast will start back up in September. If you are a physician and wish to start receiving weekly reminders of our accredited events, please fill in this form and get your name on our e-blast list!
Please note: Given the uncertainty around COVID-19, CHP will adopt a blended module. Some sessions will be delivered virtually, while some will be in-person sessions.
