Visiting Student Electives

Expand your horizons

In Dalhousie’s Department of Pediatrics, we take pride in our ability to offer elective opportunities to students worldwide.

Taking electives at a different university offers you the opportunity to work with different patients, build new knowledge and learn from preceptors with different skills—all while exploring a new city or town.

If you wish to do an external elective at the IWK Health Centre, please contact our electives coordinator at electives@dal.ca or 902-494-7843.
