Community-oriented, people-centred, interdisciplinary and evidence-based, the “McMaster Approach” has become a hallmark of McMaster University’s integrated Faculty of Health Sciences.
Research by faculty scientists has met with similar success, resulting in rankings among the top 20 universities in the world with Faculties of Health Sciences www.fhs.mcmaster.ca.
“When I was recruited to come to McMaster from Duke University in 1977, it was the excitement of the novel research programs, the excellence of the new faculty, the original approach and the fresh opportunities that drew me.
“I’ve stayed in Hamilton because of the University’s focus on learning and discovery, as well as patient-focused care. We have strong collaborations within our health care community and our affiliated academic hospital systems, Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph’s Healthcare.
“Hamilton is an excellent place to practice. We’re large enough to have the facilities and be on the cutting edge of medical innovations; small enough that members of the health care community easily get to know one another.”
