Our faculty members pursue diverse scholarly interests in an atmosphere of collaborative interaction and we have a long tradition of excellence in the education of pediatricians. Our residency program is fully accredited and focuses on providing residents with a comprehensive and diverse experience. Students in the Michael G.

Our distinguished faculty facilitate student learning using McMaster's unique curriculum and are available to mentor any level of trainee.

The Department of Pediatrics is one component of a diverse and dynamic medical community within the Hamilton region. We are proud to serve the children and families of our area. Contact me, or any of the pediatric faculty, if you have questions or would like further information.
