Expanding the classroom

As a Dalhousie student or resident, there are many opportunities for you to develop your skills both in Canada and overseas. Global health programs expose you to the core issues and ethical considerations of global health work, provide experience with the realities of delivering health care in low-resource settings, and encourage you to contribute your time and effort towards local and international health causes.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all international electives/placements are on hold. Please contact Angela Day for other global health opportunities for the 2020/2021 academic year.

Please note that Students, faculty, and staff at Dalhousie University who travel internationally for various purposes including pursuing scholarly research and academic studies abroad are required to review the Dalhousie University International Travel Policy (2019) [PDF]
