Program Highlights

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, 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.

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.

1:1 preceptor to resident ratio in a community-based learning environment.

Resident Experience

Edrea Khong
R2
The Grand Erie Six Nations (GE6N) site has phenomenal clinical experiences. For core family medicine rotations, there are preceptors based not only in Brantford, a mid-sized suburban community, but also in surrounding rural towns. This allows residents to pursue training in either a suburban or rural community depending on interests and career plans. In addition, we have fantastic clinical preceptors and mentors on our core off-service rotations in Brantford. We are the only residents based at Brantford General Hospital (BGH) and are not typically on other services at the same time as visiting learners, meaning we get one-on-one time with staff and are prioritized for learning opportunities. BGH also has a large catchment area, meaning we get great patient volumes, variety, and acuity. The continuity in Brantford also allows us to become familiar with all areas of our hospital, and for hospital staff to become familiar with us. This makes BGH truly feel like a home, and not just another place we rotate through for placements.
