Education

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.

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]

For further information on Global Health Education Abroad please review the 2019 - 2020 International Education Handbook. [PDF 661KB]
