Local Global Health Elective

Learn more about global health issues at home

Are you a first or second year medical student looking for a global health elective in Canada? We’re looking for students who want to learn more about global health issues at home to participate in this unique elective.

The Local Global Health Elective is a half-year elective, which complements family medicine (Halifax) and social paediatric (Saint John) placements with community and social service organizations. The elective will help students develop a broad understanding of the health of socially marginalized communities and the services available to address the needs of the people they serve.

The elective is open to first and second year medical students and runs from January – April. Placements are available in both Halifax and Saint John.
