Message from the Dean
and Vice-President

McMaster's Faculty of Health Sciences is recognized globally for the many significant impacts it has made on health and society.

From our community-impactful nursing school to our premier Bachelor of Health Sciences program to our world-leading CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research, we play an important role in our cultural, societal and healthcare fabric.

We achieve this for many reasons. One, we boast one of the strongest faculty cohorts in the country, evidenced by an impressive accumulation of awards and honours.

For example, in 2014 Mark Loeb, a professor in the departments of Pathology and Molecular Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics received the Jonas Salk Award, a lifetime achievement award from the March of Dimes of Canada; JoAnn Corey, director of the Psychiatry Residency Program in McMaster's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences, received the John C. Sibley Award for Excellence in Education for Part-Time Faculty; and Jean Chamberlain, an associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Deborah Cook, a professor in the Department of Medicine, were named to the Order of Canada, one of Canada's highest honours. As well, the Ontario Medical Association recently recognized a number of our physicians for significantly improving healthcare in the Province.
