N.S. adds 15 specialist residency seats to Dalhousie medical school
The province is adding 15 new specialist residency seats to the Dalhousie University medical school, bringing the total number at the university to 65.
"This helps manage workload for specialists within each of the disciplines," Nova Scotia Health Minister Randy Delorey said Wednesday at a news conference.
The added benefit of the move, said the minister, is that the majority of doctors who do their residency training in Nova Scotia - about 75 per cent - stay in the province to continue working.
