Since its inception in 1966, the School of Health and Human Performance has achieved and maintained a reputation for graduating well-prepared professionals. Graduates receive a first-rate education at Dalhousie and go on to make a real difference in their communities.
Students in any of the four undergraduate programs can take part in interprofessional learning with students in other health professions programs. This opportunity helps them prepare for the teamwork that takes place in health-care settings around the world.
Our students can also complete internship and volunteer opportunities to benefit from those already honing their skills in the field, or conducting research.
Each of the undergraduate programs reflect current practice. As well, the small sizes of our classes allows students to really get to know their professors and each other.
