The Dalhousie University No. 7 "Overseas" Stationary Hospital was established in response to the need for qualified medical personnel to serve in the First World War.
It was first mobilized on November 9, 1915 at Dalhousie Medical College in Halifax with 162 on staff. The staff included a wide variety of health professionals including doctors, dentists, nurses and other administrative personnel. The majority of these were Dalhousie students or professors.
The entourage sailed from St. John, New Brunswick on December 13, 1915 and was stationed first in England and later in France.
