Infectious Diseases Residency Program

An Overview of the Infectious Diseases Residency Program

The Division of Infectious Diseases at McMaster University is a vibrant, collegial and academic division within the Department of Medicine. The Division of Infectious Diseases seeks to educate active minds in the fields of infectious diseases and medical microbiology. We consider infectious diseases knowledge to involve a continuum of educational experiences, from the undergraduate MD level through residency training, and finally involving research and clinical scholarships. As such, we offer and support educational experiences at all levels of training.

The Adult Infectious Diseases Training Program is a two-year program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).

The program involves training at four sites within the city of Hamilton: the Hamilton General Hospital, the Juravinski Hospital, St. Joseph's Healthcare, and McMaster Children's Hospital, providing a rich and varied experience in infectious diseases

Through both inpatient and outpatient rotations as well as electives, trainees gain a broad exposure to both clinical infectious diseases and training in all CANMEDS competencies endorsed by the RCPSC.

Please take a look around our site, and welcome to Infectious Diseases Training at McMaster University: We do it with culture and sensitivity!
