Welcome to The Department of Family Medicine. We are a Department focused on strengthening the impact of family medicine on the health and well-being of all people and their communities. Our team is accomplishing this through collaboration, capacity building and person-centredness. Building on a 50 year history, we are changing the way health care is designed and delivered in Canada.
We innovate. We educate. We care.

At McMaster, innovation is found not only through “what” you learn and do, but also “how” you learn and do. We are committed to providing you with the best possible training.
Our research, which has informed the development of innovative systems of care and contributed knowledge leading to improved health outcomes, is regularly recognized with local, provincial, national and international awards for excellence.
More than 40,000 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.
