The Halton site offers the opportunity to learn comprehensive family medicine in a suburban setting with preceptors who work in both office-based and hospital settings. Each resident is in a close one-to-one relationship with a primary preceptor over the two years of residency.
Our preceptors are located either in the community-based teaching unit, or within a community teaching practices in Burlington, Waterdown, Milton, and Georgetown. Many of our practices are within Family Health Teams, and all of our residents have the opportunity to work with hospital-based teams during their core family medicine and off-service block rotations at Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington or Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital in Oakville.
A key feature of our site is the integration of family medicine within the hospital environment. All of our preceptors take care of adult inpatients, providing an interesting mix of hospitalist and office-based medicine within the core family medicine experience.
As a group, residents participate in Evidence-Based Medicine, Mental Health and Behavioral Science tutorials, Quality Assurance tutorials, Academic Half Day, Resident Rounds and Practice-Based Small Group Learning all within the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre location. Additionally, in partnership with Joseph Brant Hospital, all residents present Interdisciplinary Grand Rounds at the hospital, which is attended by staff, allied health and other practitioners.
