A rural experience

- June 7, 2017

Every year, "Med 1" students in Dalhousie's Faculty of Medicine spend a week observing a Maritime rural physician in practice. The purpose of the unit is to help our students identify characteristics of clinical practice, health-care delivery, and resource access/use in a rural setting.  

The Faculty of Medicine asked students to share photos from their placement through its Facebook Page. The theme: What’s great about living in a rural community?

Based on Facebook "likes," the contest winners (who received a gift card to the Dalhousie Bookstore) were:

1st place: Tess Robart

2nd place: Devin Jarrad

Check out more submissions below. For additional photos, visit the Faculty of Medicine's Facebook Page.
