We are Surgeons

We are Educators

The Department of Surgery at McMaster University is internationally renowned for its research collaborations and innovations that are transforming surgery and medical training, establishing new frontiers in medicine and expanding the boundaries of surgical expertise.

We are Researchers

Our faculty, fellows, residents, medical students and research staff are involved in research that impacts the lives of millions of individuals and transforms surgical care. The challenge for us is not in our productivity, but in our communication and translation of the “evidence” we are creating. To serve as but one of a number of important Department initiatives to improve ‘connectedness’ in our research successes and milestones. We all share in the pride of our collective successes.

We are Clinicians

​On top of world-leading research and outstanding educational resources, we are committed to integrating innovative clinical care to our everyday practice.
