Welcome to the McMaster University Adult Hematology Residency Training Program. We are committed to producing high calibre academic and clinical hematologists through a comprehensive clinical and laboratory training program. The greatest strength of our Residency Program is our outstanding faculty. The Division of Hematology and Thromboembolism at McMaster University has an international reputation with world-renowned researchers and clinicians easily accessible to our residents. We have over 40 faculty members with a variety of expertise, all of who regard residency education and mentorship as a priority. As a result, our residents have access to the latest developments in the field of clinical and laboratory hematology and exposure to research opportunities with leaders in the field. We are fortunate in that there is excellent integration between the laboratory and clinical aspects of hematology. Unlike many centres, our laboratories are managed by members of our Division and our residents have access to resources and technical specialists and non-physician teaching staff who play a key role in the laboratory component of the training program. Several of our laboratories are provincial and national reference centres. The Division of Hematology and Thromboembolism has diverse expertise and we are able to provide unique post-residency opportunities in transfusion medicine, thromboembolism, hemostasis and platelet immunology, malignant hematology, and research methodology. Our graduates are leading hematologists at institutions throughout North America and world-wide.

In 2009, our program was reviewed by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons and received full approval. Our collaborative and collegial teaching faculty, the strong education focus of the division, and strong research environment with good resident mentorship were cited as strengths. No significant weaknesses were noted.
