RIM Research Day

RIM Research Day 2017

DMRF is proud to be one of the sponsors for the third annual RIM Research Day held on April 8th, 2017. On this day, students from Dalhousie Medical School in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick present their research findings before an audience of peers, donors, and judges. Additionally, a number of students exhibit their RIM work on posters displayed at both campuses.

In 2013, Dalhousie Medical School took the bold step of introducing the Research in Medicine (RIM) program to its undergraduate medical curriculum. The first of its kind in Canada, RIM is designed to foster a passion for curiosity and a drive for medical research excellence. This mandatory program is long-term, seeing students work with a senior researcher on a project that is four years in length.

DMRF fundraises to support the RIM program as well as utilize our endowment to fund a large number of studentships. A summer studentship requires a stipend of $5,000 and many of our donors have responded enthusiastically – we thank you

“RIM Research Day is intended to foster vibrant research in our university,” says Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine Dean, Dr. David Anderson. “A strong research program not only attracts and retains more health professionals to our region, but also, through scientific discoveries, translates into improved care and health for the communities we serve.”
