Dates of existence
The Department of Surgery at Dalhousie University is part of the Faculty of Medicine. The department has nine divisions: Cardiac Surgery, General Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Plastic Surgery, Pediatric General Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, and Vascular Surgery.
The first reference to the Department of Medicine in the Dalhousie University calendars is in 1923-1924, where Dr. E.V. Hogan is identified as the Head of the Department under "Surgery" and "Clinical Surgery." In previous calendars (starting in 1870), surgery is listed as a subdivision of courses offered by the Faculty of Medicine, but there was no indication that it was organized as a department.
