McMaster University - Family Medicine - Rural Simcoe
Part of Norfolk County, Simcoe is located on Ontario’s southern Gold Coast, on the north shore of Lake Erie. Family Medicine residents are taught in a multi-disciplinary family health team and are closely connected to the Brantford site as many rotations are done in Brantford and academic sessions are held at the Brantford hub.
There are many opportunities in Simcoe, like specialty rotations, teaching and even research. There are great elective opportunities like ICU, Palliative Care, Anesthesia and OR assisting. The OB rotation even offers office gynecology experience for those who are interested. For teaching, residents can teach local PA and nursing students or can help the MD program in Hamilton. Simcoe faculty are also involved in clinical trials so research opportunities can be found for those interested.
