If you have an interest in emergency medical services, electives are available to fourth-year medical students, and rotations can be arranged for residents enrolled in Royal College programs.

Concentrated study, either through a medical school elective or a residency rotation, will give you a better understanding of pre-hospital care, the role of paramedics in patient management and how EMS is integrated into the overall emergency health system.

For visiting electives to Dalhousie University, please review our Undergraduate Medical Education Office policies prior to applying.

After reviewing the policies, please apply via the AFMC portal.

If you have any questions, please contact:

If you are a student of Dalhousie University, please contact the Division of EMS

Please note that visiting elective applicant’s are not permitted to contact Departments or Preceptors directly to arrange electives.
