Exploring a Family Medicine Career?

Family Medicine Interest Groups provide many educational and networking opportunities for students interested in exploring the rewarding specialty of family medicine. There are 17 FMIGs in Canada, one at each medical school. FMIGs are run by medical students, for medical students, and offer programs such as:

  • Speakers’ series
  • Clinical skills workshops
  • Mentorship programs
  • Advocacy initiatives

Joining the FMIG at Dalhousie University is an excellent way to get involved in the family medicine community. Please email for the latest information about upcoming events, ongoing projects, and more!
