Focus in Residency at Dalhousie

From medical student teaching through the Dalhousie Medical School to our Royal College Accredited Residency Training Programs to our commitment to lifelong learning through continuing education activities, see what our Diagnostic Radiology department can offer you.

As a resident in any of our Royal College Accredited residency training programs, you'll be supported every step of the way. Our department is committed to prioritizing residency programs in our educational mission. Whether you match to our five-year Diagnostic Radiology program, following the traditional 13-block rotation schedule, or our combined six-year Nuclear Medicine program, now fully engaged in competency-based medical education, you will learn from our dedicated faculty in our collegial atmosphere where you will feel well-supported and valued.

Sub-specialty residents looking for that same support from top-notch faculty and colleagues can check out our Neuroradiology residency program, giving learners two years to focus and hone their skills in both Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology.

Find Your Place on Our Team

Our residents, faculty and staff come from many places around the world to work together to bring our training programs alive. We train residents to be highly-skilled practitioners. Graduating residents go on to a diversity of fellowship programs across Canada and the United States, as well as some who head out to community practice right out of residency. We have residents serving on committees with the CAR and the RSNA. Closer to home, residents are also actively involved with various departmental committees.

Our residents work with diverse project teams to investigate and advance the field. Many are recipients of research grants and awards, resulting in publications in notable journals and presentations at major international conferences.

Our faculty and residents continue to take on local, national and international leadership roles in their fields, including:

  • Past Chair of the Royal College Radiology Exam
  • Several Royal College examiners
  • Several Past Chairs of the Royal College Specialty Committee(s)
  • Past Presidents of the Canadian Association of Radiologists
  • Past President of the Radiological Society of North America
  • Members of the Royal College Competence by Design working groups (each program)

Find Your Place on the East Coast

Experience the small city charm Halifax has to offer. Joining the Dalhousie Department of Diagnostic Radiology means setting up a home in the Nova Scotia capital city, known for its scenic ocean views, plenty of delicious seafood (and donairs – a local tradition) and a lively arts and music scene. A small city means an easy commute between the main hospital sites of the Halifax Infirmary, Victoria General and IWK Health Centre, as well as quick access to the main highways to take those weekend road trips to experience everything the East Coast has to offer.

That small city charm extends to our neighboring Maritime Provinces. Our residents spend dedicated time in Saint John, New Brunswick, another seaport city where you can experience history, the famous Bay of Fundy tides and an active arts and culture sector.
