Welcome to the Department of Anesthesia within the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University. The department has experienced steady growth over the last 10 years and is currently comprised of 34 full-time faculty and 165 part-time faculty.

Our major strength is people and several members of the department are in significant leadership roles within the hospitals and academic programs. Our hospital partners include Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph's Healthcare locally, but we also reach out into the community through the Waterloo Regional Campus and the Niagara Regional Campus.
