Sharing our knowledge

Community is all about sharing. And since we're all about community, we firmly hold to the idea that we make a far bigger impact when we all work together. That's why we've designed our core research facility, the Research Methods Unit (RMU), to promote clinical and health research through shared expertise.

The RMU offers a full range of research methods services, from assistance with the initial planning of an investigation to final publication of the results. Whether you need the answer to a single question or you require a full range of services, the RMU may be able to help.

What we do

At the RMU, we offer a broad range of consulting services to researchers, residents and graduate students within Capital Health, the IWK Health Centre, and the Dalhousie Faculties of Health Professions and Dentistry, and Dalhousie Medical School. These services include:

If you aren't from one of our partner organizations, we may still be able to help. For more information, visit the Research Methods Unit.
