Easing the burden

Electives through our partners are a great way to ease the burden on students and hosts. The GHO has developed relationships with each partner, allowing greater support from Dalhousie, a better understanding of student strengths from the partners and an overall easier placement.

To provide focused, consistent and quality placements for students seeking electives abroad and to align with current accreditation standards, all international medical electives must follow the international elective policy [PDF 522 kB]. for approval.
