The Dalhousie Department of Diagnostic Radiology is committed to pursuing excellence in:

  • Education
  • Serving and engaging society
  • Research

. . . all while fostering a supportive and collegial environment.

Our award-winning faculty includes more than 60 radiologists, researchers and scientists. The majority of residency/post graduate training occurs during subspecialty rotations at the QEII Health Science (adult quaternary care) and the IWK Health Centre (children and women’s care) in Halifax. The Saint John Regional Hospital is the major teaching site associated with Dal NB.

Although our education focus is our residents and ensuring they have the skills and confidence for the real world of independent practice, our team is active in the full spectrum of radiology education. On any given day, you could find us teaching elementary school students, delivering international subspecialty workshops to practicing radiologists, and everything in between.

With a long history of activism, we are committed to using our expertise to advocate both for our patients and for our specialty. Our initiatives to improve early diagnosis, improve patient education, and improve patient safety are making real impacts on the health of Canadians.

Our faculty members are well connected internationally and are at the forefront of innovation. As leaders in national and international radiology organizations, including four past presidents of Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) and a past president of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), we have the pulse of radiology today.

Success in research is about encouraging curiosity and supporting initial sparks no matter how big or small the idea. Our research benefits home-grown seed funding, multidisciplinary connections and in-house expertise and support staff.
