Dalhousie Medical School teaches our future doctors in roughly 60 communities across the Maritimes. There are three different kinds of teaching sites in these communities:
Family medicine site: Located in clinics in many small communities, our 44 family medicine teaching sites host long-term clinical rotations for family medicine residents.
Regional site: Located at community hospitals, our 15 regional sites host clinical training rotations for undergraduate medical students and for residents in such fields as family medicine, emergency medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgery.
Campus: The campuses in Halifax, NS, and Saint John, NB, provide centralized facilities for classroom and small-group learning, laboratory and other research experiences, and hospital-based clinical skills training. Medical students and residents in all specialties and at all phases of their training complete a large amount of their training at these campuses.

The International Medical Graduates (IMG) Multi-stakeholder Work Group:
Helping physicians who've received their medical credentials in other countries overcome barriers and take the necessary steps to become licensed to practice in Nova Scotia. Dalhousie Medical School is a leading member of this group and works with various partners to ensure the licensing process and access to training are fair and equitable. The IMG work group has created important collaborative programs, such as an online orientation to Canadian medical practice, clinical skills review sessions, an IMG Clerkship, and opportunities for IMGs to observe physicians in practice
The IMG work group includes the Association of International Physicians & Surgeons of NS, Immigrant Settlement and Integration Services (ISIS), the College of Physicians & Surgeons of NS, Doctors Nova Scotia, Capital Health, provincial government departments, and other key stakeholders across the province. Nationally recognized as a best practice approach, the IMG Work Group is part of a larger initiative that covers 14 regulated fields, including nursing, pharmacy and dentistry.
