Residency Training

Resident-first approach to internal medicine education

The Dalhousie Internal Medicine Residency Program provides in-depth experience in all disciplines of internal medicine, preparing you for general internal medicine or an internal medicine subspecialty. The program is accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) and is based in Halifax and Saint John.

Our strength lies in our resident-first approach. The Department of Medicine is a collegial supportive environment with accomplished faculty. Clinician teachers are encouraged, evaluated and acknowledged for excellence and innovation in education. Residents can expect an exceptional educational experience in one of the most beautiful parts of Canada.

The Department of Medicine encourages residents to incorporate research into their careers. As a resident, you'll produce at least one academic project each year. The department has a resident research director, committee and coordinator who will help you with research contacts and resources on an ongoing basis.

The Department of Medicine also offers accredited training programs in 15 subspecialties and several fellowship opportunities.
