The Faculty of Health is the largest and most diverse faculty of its kind in Canada, with more than 35 health and social services programs. We offer inter-professional education opportunities, foster cross- and multi-discipline research collaborations, and provide a reasoned, academic voice on broad health issues. The new Collaborative Health Education Building (CHEB) and Centre for Collaborative Clinical Learning & Research (CCCLR) are state-of-the-art facilities, providing student study, group work and simulation space.

Our vibrant alumni family is over 23,000 strong. Through dedication, energy and creativity, they continue to make significant contributions to health in Canada and throughout the world.

Our alumni are a source of pride and support for the faculty. Whether supervising students as preceptors and clinical instructors, networking, guest lecturing, or taking part in events,  our alumni and friends contribute in many ways to the success of the Faculty of Health. We are also fortunate to have dedicated friends and supporters of the Faculty.

Many of our alumni take on the role of preceptor or clinical instructor, providing on-the-job-training to our students. These alumni preceptors supervise students in the health professions throughout the Maritimes. We appreciate the contributions of our alumni, supporters, and friends who are very generous with their time and financial support.

Dalhousie’s 200th Anniversary

The Faculty of Health has a new strategic plan as of 2017. Throughout 2018, we will celebrate Dal’s third century through a Healthy Living, Healthy Life conference, a campaign highlighting 200 achievements the Faculty has made to health.

We are also excited to launch a new anniversary scholarship supporting the PhD in health – the only program of its kind in Canada.
