During the exciting and challenging time of medical training, our office is dedicated to supporting students. We aim to contribute to an enduring culture of wellness and resilience in medicine within the classroom and the clinical settings.
CONFIDENTIAL - CONSENTING - COLLABORATIVE
These words describe the principles our team takes in the direction, support or advice we provide to guide you on the personal side of becoming a medical doctor. We work with our learners and other teaching faculty and administrators to help you develop and maintain the personal skills that will see you through medical school. Your confidentiality and active consent is central to our approach.
We have programs to develop career goals and plans, financial strategies, health and wellness, and the organizational and emotional skills to develop strong performance and resilience. We will help you cope with the stresses of medical training, as you develop your full personal potential, through self-knowledge, peer support, guidance from us and a range of flexible personal skills. We like to get to know both your ordinary and extraordinary experiences at DalMed. Maritime Canada needs passionate physicians and we’re proud to help train you to engage and serve the community.
