Dalhousie School of Social Work Community Clinic


The Dalhousie School of Social Work Community Clinic is located at 6054 Quinpool Road, Halifax. The Clinic is staffed by two Dalhousie social work graduates, and conceptualized and managed by the Social Work Field Coordinator, Cyndi Hall and faculty member, Dr. Jeff Karabanow.

Our purpose:

  • to offer undergraduate and graduate students in Health Professions an opportunity to learn frontline practice from a social justice and anti-oppressive perspective
  • to provide support and advocacy
  • and to enhance existing front line services by supporting their work and collaborating on complex cases
