Program Highlights

Dalhousie is a small and collegial program by reputation that offers residents excellent clinical exposure with close supervision from experienced and practical dermatologists with a medical dermatology focus. Residents gain diverse clinical experience with broad exposure as Halifax serves as a referral center for the Maritime provinces. Residents benefit from frequent exposure and managing their own patients given the smaller size of the program. Also, the number of learners in the clinic environment is optimized so as not to dilute learning needs of core dermatology residents. Staff remain strongly committed to resident education and participate actively in resident academic half days.

Halifax is a multicultural city with an attractive arts and culture scene, lots of outdoor activities and a vibrant, central downtown core. Specific strengths of the program noted by previous and current residents include dermatopathology and our dedicated teaching staff. The goal of our program is to train competent and professional medical dermatologists capable of providing exemplary clinical care for patients with skin disease.
