Opened in 1868, the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University, also known as Dalhousie Medical School, is one of the oldest medical schools in Canada. The medical school is now the largest health research faculty in Atlantic Canada. Dalhousie medical graduates and researchers fill positions in many of the world’s top medical institutions. The reach of Dalhousie’s medical school spans the Maritimes region, educating more than 50 per cent of the region’s doctors and hosting more than 100 teaching sites across the region. At the same time, the faculty enjoys a reputation far and wide for excellence and innovation. It was one of the first medical schools in North America to admit women, to create a continuing medical education (CME) program for practicing physicians, and to emphasize communications skills and the humanities in medical teaching.
