Posted by GHO Admin on April 26, 2017 in Events

Summer Programs

Dalhousie’s Faculty of Medicine Indigenous Health Program provides summer programming for youth from the Indigenous communities. The Indigenous Health Sciences Summer Camp will be held in two locations one at Cape Breton University/Nova Scotia Community College-Marconi Campus and the second at Saint Francis Xavier University in Antigonish. The goal of summer programming is to provide our Indigenous learners with fun, hands-on, and interactive activities to increase interest in the health professions. 

Indigenous Nova Scotian students from across Nova Scotia who are interested in a career in health are invited to apply for this camp.   The purpose of the camp is to increase interest in the health professions within the Indigenous community.  The camp will introduce youth to a variety of health professions through fun, hands-on and interactive programming.  The camp will also consist of personal development, cultural and recreational activities such as First Nation drumming, swimming and other outdoor activities.  

Youth can apply for the one or all of the following summer opportunities:

  • Sydney, Cape Breton University – July 18-21, 2017 (Grade 8, 9, 10, 11)
  • Antigonish, Saint Francis Xavier University – July 23-26, 2017 (Grade 8, 9, 10, 11)
  • Halifax, Dalhousie University - Dates TBD
