Research in Medicine

Fostering research skills  

The first program of its kind in Canada, Research in Medicine (RIM) is a mandatory program that introduces Dalhousie medical students to research from the start of their medical training. From first year on, it fosters their research and critical thinking abilities as they complete independent research projects.

The Department of Surgery encourages research-driven initiatives early in medical education and training. The RIM program partners well with our researchers and provides projects of interest to medical students.

As a medical student, you are encouraged to identify and engage researchers in the Department of Surgery to work on research projects of interest.
