More than 33,000 people in the Hamilton region have access to primary health care through McMaster Family Health Team (MFHT), a collaboration of three separate clinics operated by our Health Services team.
MFHT clinics, which are academic teaching units, have a wide range of benefits for patients, students, researchers and the health care system as a whole. Some of these benefits are:
- Patients directly benefit from the innovations of our Department’s Research team;
- Future health care workers become the best possible practitioner through a robust education program;
- The future of our health care system is being realized through our commitment to system transformation and challenging the status quo;
