Support for students in francophone minority communities

The Global Health Office is working on a new initiative to improve recruitment and retention of Francophone students (from Acadian and other francophone minority communities) in the health professions and thereby improve access to French-language health services throughout the Maritimes. 

We work in partnership with Réseau Santé Nouvelle Écosse, Université Sainte-Anne to better understand the health context for francophone minority communities in the region and respond through community collaborations and student engagement.

We offer events and training for existing students on collaboration with the Dalhousie Chapter of FrancoDoc. For more information, or to join FrancoDoc, please see here:
