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 supported financially by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness. It is occasionally enhanced with pharmaceutical industry sponsorship by means of educational grants.
We're gearing up for the 2020-21 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, virtual CHP will be provided instead of in-person sessions.
Remember that all physicians are welcomed to attend any accredited program; you are not restricted to attending only the programs in the hospital you have privileges in.
The weekly Tuesday "Current Events" email blast is back as of August 20th. If you are a physician and wish to start receiving weekly reminders of all our accredited events, please fill in this form and get your name on our blast-list!
Please note: Given the uncertainity around COVID-19, virtual CHP will be provided instead of in-person sessions.
