Grand Erie Six Nations (GE6N)

GE6N Clinical Education Campus

The Grand Erie Six Nations (GE6N) site is the most recent addition to the McMaster Family Medicine Residency Program. We have been a teaching site for many years with learners coming from both the Hamilton and Waterloo campuses, prior to the Residency Program. The GE6N program emphasizes community and preceptor based training in family medicine. The curriculum follows the traditional block rotation format.

Core Family Medicine clinical teaching sites are located in Brantford, Delhi, and Paris, with options to go to Simcoe. Residents indicate their location preference via an internal match following the CaRMS match. The internal match is designed to assist in matching residents with supervisors that share the same interest.

Program Highlights

  • Six Nations of the Grand River & Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations are located near Brantford and are serviced by local family physicians and the Brant Community Healthcare System which allows learners to interact with Indigenous populations throughout their clinical rotations.
  • A two-year longitudinal curriculum on Indigenous Health is delivered by local faculty and community members. Sessions are incorporated into core elements of the residency program and supplemented with site visits to local Indigenous communities.
  • Unique elective opportunity in palliative care incorporating hospital, hospice and home visits with a team of family physicians who have a special interest in palliative medicine.
  • Simulation lab monthly sessions led by local Emergency physicians.
  • Point-of-Care Ultrasound course available for all GE6N residents to complete at a reduced resident rate.
  • One-to-one preceptor to resident ratio in a community-based learning environment.
