The McMaster University Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is a large multi-site department with over 90 Geographic full time, Part time clinical and Adjunct faculty located at two fully-affiliated teaching hospitals, community teaching hospitals and other distributed education sites. In addition to the McMaster University training sites, we have two satellite medical schools; one in Kitchener-Waterloo affiliated with the Grand River Regional Hospital and a second in St. Catharines with affiliated with the Niagara Health System. We are involved in teaching over 200 undergraduate medical students each year during their clinical clerkship, 36 residents in obstetrics and gynecology and many clinical and research fellows in a number of different subspecialty areas.

McMaster University has always been innovative in all aspects of medical and inter-professional education; this is no less true for our undergraduate and postgraduate training. We utilize our renowned small group problem based learning and state of the art simulation techniques to impart the knowledge, skills and competencies required for future providers of care to women and their families.
