Nova Scotia is almost completely surrounded by ocean and has a population of just over 900,000. Due to its small size, Nova Scotia is densely populated, with most of its population concentrated in Halifax, the capital. Nova Scotians have a long history of advocating for human and civil rights, and their governments have often been pioneers at passing progressive legislation. Practicing medicine in Nova Scotia allows a physician to experience both urban and rural medicine.
Nova Scotia Medical Schools:
Established in 1868, the Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine's mission is to "reflect the diversity in our own community and is committed to the principles of meritocracy and equity, taking action to support the access and success of under-represented groups." Each year, approximately 1000 students compete for 100 spots in the MD program.
