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.

Increasingly, we know that women are underrepresented in academia and healthcare settings. The 2021 Women’s Symposium will be a venue where we can bring together women and their allies to consider how we might close the gap over time.
This will represent the first of these events, which we are hoping will evolve into an ongoing annual conference over time.
All faculty members who identify as women and allies of women within the Faculty of Health Sciences (and beyond) are invited to join us.
Each session will have a mix of external speakers and FHS leaders interested in exploring key topics around how we might increase the number of women in healthcare leadership positions in both academia and clinical work.

-List key issues facing women in academia, leadership, healthcare, and society;
-Add new skills to your basic toolkit for approaching key barriers that women face in academia, leadership, health care, and society;
