Our physicians teach future physicians through our longstanding partnership with McMaster University's Michael G. Degroote School of Medicine - Niagara Regional Campus. Many of our physicians give their time and expertise to contribute to this quality-learning environment. Last year, 240 resident doctors received clinical instruction from physicians at Niagara Health.
Among several partnership initiatives, we host an annual Simulation Day event where Niagara Health team members train with medical learners during realistic simulated scenarios and other workshops.
Meet general surgery resident physician Dr. Leigh Skelley and learn about her experience as a resident here.
Meet emergency medicine resident physician Dr. Katelyn Baker and learn about her experience as a resident here.
We want to provide learning opportunities that support the improvement of organizational performance and enhance patient care. Collaborative learning provides our team members with professional development opportunities that effectively improve team performance, while our students benefit from experiential learning opportunities that prepare them for the world of healthcare today and tomorrow.
