Link Program

Transition to clerkship

At Dalhousie, we want your transition into clerkship to be as smooth and stress-free as possible, so we created the 15-week Link Program for all IMU students.

The curriculum provides a comprehensive overview of the Canadian healthcare system, and develops skills in communication, patient history taking and physical examinations. There are also helpful cultural orientation sessions before and after arriving in Halifax.
