Our partnership with McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine - Niagara Regional Campus

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.
