Postgraduate trainee well-being

Dalhousie Medical School is committed to providing its trainees with a learning environment that is free of harassment and mistreatment. All learners, faculty and staff within the medical school and postgraduate training programs share responsibility for establishing and maintaining a climate of respect, and for taking appropriate steps to seek advice and/or address harassment and mistreatment when it occurs.

If you have a complaint of postgraduate trainee mistreatment--whether it involved you or another trainee--it's important to report it. It's also important to acknowledge professionalism in action.

Residents experiencing mistreatment in the workplace are encouraged to contact us ( for confidential support and advocacy.
