Meeting learners’ needs

Residency training

Our residency training program accepts one resident annually and is accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Residents have an exceptional success rate in their final exam thanks to individual attention and extensive exposure to inpatient, outpatient and outreach physical medicine and rehabilitation care. Learn more about our residency training.

Undergraduate education

Undergraduate education includes elective and selective rotations, case-based learning tutorials and clinical skills teaching. Elective students can expect robust experience in stroke care, amputations, musculoskeletal disorders, neurological disorders and brain and spinal cord injury. About 20 medical students and clinical clerks rotate through the division annually.

State-of-the-art clinical programs

All learners benefit from state-of-the-art clinical programs designed and delivered by multidisciplinary teams to best meet the secondary and tertiary care needs of patients in Halifax, Nova Scotia and across the Maritime provinces. Learners are also supported to participate in the division’s research efforts.
