Patient Care

Medical expertise in all areas of internal medicine

The Department of Medicine’s faculty members diagnose, treat and help people manage illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and irritable bowel disorders. We serve the complex medical needs of adults in Halifax and the Maritime region. Nova Scotia Health Authority and family physicians across the region are our partners in providing excellent patient care.

The department is divided into 15 clinical divisions that are responsible for providing specialized care in all areas of internal medicine. Division members also conduct research and deliver education in their areas of expertise, such as cardiology, infectious diseases and rheumatology.

We are part of an academic health district that values patient care, health promotion, research, education and their interdependence. Because of this, patients benefit from the highest quality care that considers disease prevention and the latest medical evidence and knowledge.
