Patient Care by Residents

Meeting the region's health needs

We offer residency options in family medicine and more than 50 specialty and subspecialty programs, located in more than 100 teaching sites across the Maritimes. Currently, over 560 Dalhousie residents are training under expert clinical faculty to be key participants in patient care in Maritime Canada.

Residents work side-by-side with expert faculty members who are dedicated to teaching, as well as serving patient needs. In one-on-one, customized learning environments, our faculty ensure that residents develop as medical experts, professionals, communicators, collaborators, health advocates and scholars.

Our faculty and residents also work to translate research and technological advancements into practice to provide the best possible care for our communities. Their areas of research include working on ways to ensure decreased transplant rejection, finding more effective drugs for Alzheimer’s patients and possibile prenatal vaccines for whooping cough.
