Scope and content

Series consists of records that document the administrative and operational activities of Dalhousie Univerity’s MedIT. These include videos of administrative meetings, conference lectures, curriculum lectures, extracurricular activities such as student and faculty concerts, interviews pertaining to Dalhousie Medical School’s history and alumni, medical employee professionalization, public lectures, and patient education.

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. Videos are included from various departments in the Dalhousie Medical School, including the departments of Anaesthesia, Anatomy, Biochemistry, Community Health and Epidemiology, Family Medicine, Medicine, Microbiology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine, Physiology and Biophysics, Radiology, Rheumatology, Urology, the Medical Education Unit, and the Division of Continuing Medical Education. The series also contains videos created at and for hospitals in Halifax, Nova Scotia and local medical associations. These videos were designed for the education of medical employees, patients, and the general public.

Several videos from a series "Dalhousie Medical School Remembered" are also included in this series, which consist of interviews with alumni of the School, reflecting on their experiences at Dalhousie and in the medical profession.
