Resident Experience

Mark A. Cachia
PGY-2
That you always feel part of the Mac PHPM community. Whether it’s attending half-days as a PGY-1, to seeing other residents during our planned socials, to impromptu board games nights, there’s always folks around!
I really appreciated the opportunity to choose whether or not to pursue the family medicine component of PHPM training at Mac. It allows me to focus on maximizing my learning during residency and helps me be the best physician I can be.
Our within-program community is supportive and always willing to help out a resident in need, especially our Program Coordinator! It can be a bit tricky coordinating everyone’s busy schedules (especially given COVID!) but the PHPM group is only a message away.
Outside of being a resident I’m involved in some environmental initiatives as well as trying to explore more of what Hamilton has to offer as the city begins to open up.
Our program has a dedicated wellness half-day in addition to resident initiated social activities such as hiking or going out for a bite to eat. There are also opportunities to be involved in helping shape the program direction and advocating for changes to continue to create a supportive resident experience.
I’m really looking forward to beginning my core public health rotations in the next year as I will be finally able to put all the theory I have learned into practice!
