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.   

Stay Informed

Please see below for Community Hospital Programs booked for the Academic Year starting in September. Keep posted for new programs as they are booked in all 14 of our Nova Scotia hospital communities.

CHP has adopted a blended module. Some sessions will be delivered virtually, while some will be in-person sessions. 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.

If you would like to receive weekly reminders for our accredited events for physicians, or have your attendance at our events tracked, please complete and submit the Contact Data Form. Be sure to check “Yes” to “I agree to receive email announcements” to get your name on our e-blast list!

Receiving Credits

To receive Mainpro+ Credits, which you can then claim from the CFPC, you must complete the survey distributed at each CHP session. The survey will be open for one week after the session. 

CPDME-accredited Activity Reports are produced based on request. To request a record of your credits, please email cpd@dal.ca, and give us the period for which you would like this information.
