A central focus on education at all levels

The Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) provides outstanding education for all levels of learners.

Division faculty members have received numerous teaching awards and earn consistently high praise from students and residents. They are also active educators throughout the department, including simulation education, point of care ultrasound (PoCUS), clinical skills teaching for undergraduate medical students, and in various educational leadership roles.

Whether you are a medical student or resident, you will find division members to be highly skilled and attentive. At every level of learning, you will be considered a valued member of the care team.

General internal medicine (GIM) is a distinct subspecialty that requires postgraduate training in additional competencies following three years of internal medicine training. Dalhousie’s Division of General Internal Medicine offers a two-year, accredited Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada subspecialty training program. This training program is supportive of the breadth of general internal medicine and will facilitate training tailored to the goals of the trainee.  We strive to assist trainees in their journey to become highly competent general internists, whether academic or community-based.
