August 12, 2019

Dalhousie Medical School is ready to welcome 16 additional undergraduate medical students over the next year, earmarking the positions specifically for individuals from Nova Scotia. Dal reports that the investment comes at a time when access to family physicians is top of mind for many Nova Scotians. The government is investing $300K this year to add the new seats, and will increase the annual investment to $4.8M by the 2023-24 academic year. “This is really exciting news for the university and the province,” said Dal Interim President Teri Balser. “Dalhousie is fully committed to providing quality health care to communities across Nova Scotia. This investment will allow us to do even more to improve the health of our province’s population.” Dal (NS)
