Postgraduate Medical Education

Associate Dean’s Message


For the past 50 years, McMaster has offered challenging and rewarding postgraduate training that supports the continuum of medical education. These programs have been and continue to be taught by dedicated and exemplary physicians and scholars in outstanding teaching hospitals, health systems and training sites. Our rich history has grounded PGME in a tradition of excellence that has prepared us well for the next phase of growth. Over the next few years we will advance residency education with new initiatives that will change the way postgraduate medical training is delivered at McMaster.

Our goal is to produce competent, caring physicians and clinicians who have the skills, drive and leadership ability to meet the medical needs of a changing society. Not just today, but for the generations to come. We have been doing extraordinarily well at achieving this goal since 1967. The next few years will see transformative changes in the ways we teach and assess residents, develop curricula to advance social accountability in training and incorporate meaningful outcomes to measure the success of residency programs in training our next generation of physicians.

Dr. Parveen Wasi, Associate Dean, Postgraduate Medical Education
