At Dalhousie Medicine Student Affairs, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of confidentiality. Our office operates as an independent entity, distinct from Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME). We handle all student information with the utmost care and respect, ensuring that it remains within our office, an exception being that with student consent, Student Affairs may share student information with designated individuals for collaboration on a student’s situation.

We would also share any information outside of our office if there is a clear and imminent risk of harm to oneself or another. In such cases, appropriate steps will be taken to ensure safety while maintaining maximum confidentiality. The student will be informed that this information will be shared.

Your trust is important to us, and we are dedicated to always protecting your privacy and confidentiality. If you have any questions or concerns about our confidentiality practices, please reach out and contact us.
