Faculty of Health Professions

Dalhousie Fund (Health Professions)   

Annual giving has an immediate and meaningful impact on students and enables Dalhousie to provide unrivalled academic excellence, redefine the boundaries of education, and move forward with confidence, inspiration and strength. A gift to the Faculty of Health Professions is a commitment to the Faculty’s area of greatest need.

Inter-professional Health Education Facility    

Dalhousie is poised to offer a more structured and integrated approach to inter-professional health education and research. The new building will provide space for inter-professional collaboration, teaching and research among the Faculties of Health Professions, Dentistry and Medicine.

Chair, Nursing and Collaborative Practice   

The Chair will create an optimal interprofessional learning environment for our nursing students. It will provide opportunities for faculty to engage in interdisciplinary learning by liaising with the health and human service communities around collaborative projects, and leading a research program that will evaluate and guide our curricular initiative in different health and human service contexts.

Chair, Business Management in Pharmacy   

With approximately two out of every three Canadian pharmacy graduates entering community-based practice, today’s pharmacists require many of the same skills that make business executives successful. This Chair will focus on teaching and research around the practice of business management within the context of the pharmacy profession.

Entry-to-Practice Scholarships and Rural Bursaries   

When smart, promising undergraduate students are unable to finance their post-secondary education, it is a waste of human potential. These scholarships and bursaries will help eliminate the impediment to acquiring a university education by providing financial support to qualified students.

Graduate Research Fellowship Fund   

At Dalhousie, we actively recruit the brightest minds and deepest thinkers; graduate students who will push the innovation agenda and shape the future. This fund will provide a competitive edge for Dalhousie to attract and retain top graduate students, helping to address Canada’s demand for these innovative problem solvers.
