CBU Partners With Dal To Produce Five New Medical School Seats
Cape Breton University is partnering with Dalhousie University to create five new medical school seats this September.
It’s part of CBU’s strategic health initiative on recruiting more healthcare workers in rural areas that got $5 million from the Province in March.
To be accepted into the pilot program, students will have to meet Dalhousie Medical School admission requirements and be a Nova Scotian living in a rural area, including anywhere in Cape Breton.
Students in the program will also have to commit to practice family medicine in rural Nova Scotia, including anywhere in Cape Breton, for five years, once their training is complete.
