• “I was given all of the tools I needed to truly become an 'academic in the community'. ”

    The supportive staff and medical oncologists at McMaster were instrumental in my development as an independent clinician and researcher.  I was given all of the tools I needed to truly become an 'academic in the community'.  The team at McMaster has been there for me every step of the way and my mentors continue to support me as I enter my fourth year of practice.  I could not be more grateful for my years of training at McMaster which were filled with laughs, hard work and collegiality.

  • “I thoroughly enjoyed my training within the department of Oncology at McMaster University. ”

    I thoroughly enjoyed my training within the department of Oncology at McMaster University. The Juravinski Cancer Centre offered me the clinical experience of a busy tertiary Cancer Centre, and gave me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of specialized expert physicians. McMaster University is just the right size to give you a breadth of clinical exposure while still being small enough to give you the feeling that you are part of a tight knit community.
