Nova Scotia Community Hospital Programs

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 your 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 that are 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 occasionally enhanced with pharmaceutical industry sponsorship by means of educational grants.

Welcome to the growing list of programs for the 2017 - 18 academic year. Please check back regularily for updates as the Fall session nears.
