Videos from conferences were sponsored, organized, and funded by the Dalhousie Medical School as part of the school's contribution to the larger medical community's commitment to public and student education, as well as an opportunity to showcase the quality of the School's facilities, faculty, and students. Some of the conferences included are "The First Gynaecological Grand Rounds," "Medicine in the Humanities," and "Women in Medicine." A sample of lectures and panel discussions are included from each conference.
The majority of tapes included in the series were used in the Dalhousie Medical School curriculum, including lectures, seminars, educational demonstrations of procedures and interactions with patients, and round-table discussions with students and faculty.
