Division Head Message

Excellence in clinical care, education and research

Our division is dedicated to delivering outstanding care for our patients, to expanding knowledge about neurological conditions and treatments and to offering the best possible training for residents and medical students.

The division provides care to patients from around Maritime Canada and leads many specialized programs and facilities to support patients with a variety of neurological conditions. Our clinical outreach extends to a network of Maritime teaching hospitals as well as numerous communities.

Our cutting edge research covers the spectrum of neurological disorders and we have a strong tradition of collaborating with researchers from outside the division and the Dalhousie community.

In our residency training program, residents receive a solid grounding in general and subspecialty neurology practice along with a high level of one-on-one instruction and hands-on experience.

We are proud to deliver excellent research-driven care and to provide medical students, residents and fellows with a comprehensive program that fosters competency, compassion and life-long learning.
