McMaster University - Pediatrics - Hamilton
Welcome to the McMaster University Pediatric Residency Program! The program is committed to providing the best education possible for our residents with skills in clinical pediatrics, research and education. Residents graduating from the McMaster pediatrics program are fully prepared for their ultimate career in either general consultative pediatrics or subspecialty pediatrics. The Pediatric Residency Program takes 12-14 residents per year from various entry points.
All residents have elective time in their 2nd and 3rd years. Many of our residents participate in global health experiences during these electives, with global health training opportunities and mentorship within the department and the university for all residents. There is also significant flexibility through Integrated Pediatrics (IP) blocks throughout senior years within the program, allowing residents to return to clinical areas for more experience and to explore unique supplementary clinical opportunities.
We feel it is essential for residents to be exposed to general consulting pediatric practice in the community setting, thus there are mandatory community rotations in the program. Hamilton has many smaller communities within an hour of the city, with strong educational links to these communities allowing for valuable learning experiences.
