DalHSSA (Health Sciences Students' Association) has been revived as of 2015 to advocate for interprofessional education among disciplines dedicated to the various aspects of health care at Dalhousie University.


Additional objectives of this student association include facilitating professional collaboration and communication among students and associations in the Faculties of Health Professions, Medicine and Dentistry, and the health care community.


We want to provide students with interprofessional collaborative life skills to further their knowledge and clinical skills for the real world!
