Busy clinics, top-notch education and research

In the Division of Rheumatology at Dalhousie University, we provide specialized medical and consultative care for Atlantic Canadians with inflammatory arthritis and rheumatic diseases. We are based in the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre and the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and in the Saint John Regional Hospital in Saint John, New Brunswick.

The Division also provides undergraduate education and residency training, and offers a two-year sub-specialty training program in adult rheumatology, accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Education in rheumatology

No matter where you are in your educational journey, you’ll benefit from exposure to a busy practice environment and the opportunity to engage in research activities. Also, our division works closely with other clinical units like cardiology, respirology, orthopedics and family medicine, which will provide you with the opportunity to participate in various sub-specialty and multi-disciplinary teams.

Division faculty are actively engaged in national and international research committees and networks, and they work with patient care groups and alliances to advocate for improved, alternative models of care.
