Residency Program

Take the next step

Looking for a well-respected pediatric residency program offering plenty of hands-on experience? Dalhousie’s Department of Pediatrics offers a strong program in partnership with Halifax’s IWK Health Centre.

Our competitive, four-year program attracts residents from across the country. Each year, we accept four or five first-year residents through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS), and we usually accept one or two international medical graduates as well.

As a resident, you’ll have the option of completing four years of general pediatrics, or completing three years of general pediatrics and then moving on to subspecialty training in your fourth year. And by the time you’re done, you’ll be eligible to take the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Certification Examinations.
