YRH is a teaching hospital

In 2014, YRH was selected as a new Family Medicine Training site, creating five family residency training spots.  In 2019 the Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine set up a second residency program in Yarmouth, this time for community general internists who will complete their final two years of training under the supervision of Dr. Brian Moses. YRH is also the Yarmouth campus for the Dalhousie School of Nursing.
