A central focus on education at all levels

The Division of General Internal Medicine 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.

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. Starting in July 2015, Dalhousie’s Division of General Internal Medicine will offer a two-year subspecialty training program. (Prior to 2015, our division offered an accredited one-year GIM program. The new two-year program was accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in June 2016.)
