Education Outreach

Pushing medical education forward

At Dalhousie, we believe it is critically important to foster and facilitate medical education across the continuum and medical education scholarship. The goal is to ensure teaching and learning are evidence-based and using the most effective teaching assessment approaches.

We do this various ways and host a wide variety of activities and events that inspire and inform clinician and basic science medical educators, students, residents and physicians.


Improving the patient experience

When it comes to designing our programs and centres, nothing is more important than ensuring our future physicians have the skills to provide the best patient care possible - whether we're helping them become more effective communicators or teaching them the skills they need to make efficient use of innovative new technology.

Our programs include:

  • Communication Skills
  • Critical Thinking
  • Education Research
  • Interprofessional Development
  • Learning Resource Centre (simulation-based and clinical skills education)
  • Medical Humanities - HEALS
  • Medical Informatics
  • Program Evaluation
