Broadening your internal medicine experience

You can choose elective experiences in virtually all areas of medicine in the first, second and fourth years of medical school to build on your knowledge of internal medicine. Electives can range from two to four weeks.

Students from outside of Dalhousie

If you want to take an elective through the Department of Medicine and are currently attending a university other than Dalhousie University, you must apply through the AFMC Student Portal. Applications must be received at least four months before the elective start date.

Students enrolled at Dalhousie Medical School

If you want to schedule an elective and you're a student at Dalhousie Medical School, please review the Med 4 Elective Guide available under resources on Brightspace and contact domundergrad@nshealth.ca.
