Welcome to the Postgraduate Program in Family Medicine. 

Residency is an exciting and important time, the final step on your road to independent practice.  In Family Medicine at McMaster University we have developed a balanced and innovative program intended to best support you along the way, with the goal of preparing our graduates to begin comprehensive practice anywhere in Canada.  Your clinical experiences and academic sessions have been specifically designed to ensure the right exposures in a collegial working environment.  The resident-preceptor dyad, a foundational component of our program, supports the feedback and opportunities for growth that you’ll require to develop the key competencies of a capable family physician.  We are a dynamic and supportive program – open to feedback and change, and residents have an important voice in how the program functions.  We have taken a careful approach to the expansion and distribution of our program to ensure that, regardless of the site you choose, you will experience a consistent approach to a quality education.  We look forward to meeting you!
