Outpatient Clinic Growth
The Infectious Disease pediatric outpatient clinic started in late 2009 and quickly grew. In 2012, we doubled our clinic space and are now able to provide even better, timely, quality care.
Dr. Martha Fulford has been instrumental in reviving the McMaster Travel Clinic. While officially under the aegis of the Department of Medicine, we are proud to offer pediatric-specific pre- and post-travel care.
