Faits saillants

The McMaster Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency program has a long and storied history. Many past graduates have gone on to become influential clinicians and researchers in their areas of interest. We have exceptional teaching faculty members who have expertise spanning the large spectrum of physiatry practice. The residency program is pleased to offer the full complement of physical medicine and rehabilitation disciplines. In addition to the fundamental physiatry areas of clinical expertise, we are fortunate to have both oncology and pediatric rehabilitation clinical rotations. The program has also kept pace with recent advancements in image-guided interventional therapy and many staff have incorporated these principles into their practice. Graduates from our program are well equipped to work in either academic or community practices. We are privileged to have several of our past graduates return to our program and further enrich our training experience.

Renseignements généraux

The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Training at McMaster University is a 5-year program. We have a large diverse and accomplished faculty. Our Regional Rehabilitation Centre is an exceptional facility adjacent to the region’s largest General Hospital.

Our curriculum is under continuous development. We revamped the Academic Half Day schedule to occur every Wednesday afternoon, providing learners with a multitude of knowledge and skills, including OSCE performance, ultrasound for procedures, and Quality Improvement protocols. Journal Clubs are also held every month.

Recently, we introduced Resident Case Rounds, driven by residents who saw an opportunity to enhance education. They are held every Thursday morning via videoconferencing. The rounds are designed to help residents develop their clinic problem-solving skills while reviewing important concepts as they relate to interesting cases.

Additionally, we have implemented new rotation opportunities for residents, such as the Anatomy rotation, and the Academic Development rotation.
Research and opportunities to present are available within the program, as well as mentorship provided by our Research Director. Residents are required to conduct a scholarly project from inception to completion during their residency program and may choose to focus their scholarly project on quality improvement (QI).

Our graduating residents are well-positioned to assume careers in academic and community-based practices or to pursue additional training in specialized fellowships.

Hamilton cityscape
Hamilton is a Canadian port city on the western tip of Lake Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment, a huge, forested ridge known locally as “the mountain” and dotted with conservation areas and waterfalls, divides the city. The long-distance Bruce Trail runs along the escarpment. HMCS Haida, a naval warship on the city’s lakefront, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in the south, trace Canada’s military past.
