About Us

Since 1967, the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University has been making a difference in our communities.

As a Department and as individuals, we aim to support people and their families in staying happy, healthy and active at all stages of their lives

All areas of our Department, and each member of our team, play a part in impacting people’s lives locally, nationally and globally.

  • Our Education team of clinical teachers, educational researchers and staff support health care learners to become compassionate, dedicated and confident health care professionals.
  • Our Research team is actively working to understand, create and improve the health care people receive.
  • Our Administrative teams maintain a well-managed and fiscally responsible foundation that supports all areas of the Department.
  • Our Health Services team of academic physicians, allied health professionals, clinical researchers, educators and support staff apply the most modern standards of care to the health and well-being of McMaster Family Health team patients.

Working with community, government, academic and clinical partners, we are building on our 50 year history of changing the way primary health care is designed and delivered in Canada.
