Unique qualities

A unique feature of the School of Health Administration is that it is located in a small province in Canada and consequently faculty and students have relatively open access to senior officials at local, regional and provincial levels. The School has consolidated a wide variety of rich and rewarding teaching and research opportunities with key health agencies in Atlantic Canada. Indeed, many senior personnel of these agencies hold honorary or part-time sessional appointments in the School.

The School enjoys strong links with the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness, the major academic health care institutions in Halifax, and key facilities within the university including but not limited to the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre, the Population Health Research Unit and the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology, the Health Law Institute, and the Lester Pearson International Centre.  Nationally, the School is a member of the Canadian College of Health Leaders, the Canadian Society of International Health and the Canadian Public Health Association.
