Welcome to the resident webpage! In July of each year, McMaster Anesthesia Residency Program welcomes the addition of new residents to the PGY-1 cohort. A unique aspect of our residency program is the collegiality amongst the residents. Historically, the McMaster anesthesia residents form a tight-knit group, and we share good times with each other both in and outside of academic settings. We also demonstrate collegiality with residents from other Canadian programs, as evident by our residents' annual involvement in the CAS conference and the McMaster-Western Resident Research Exchange Day. We are also actively involved in global health development, with two residents being selected every year for an international elective in Uganda.
Our training program has always maintained a strong reputation, as we constantly strive for improvement and renovations. The regional anesthesia block has received great resident feedback and has been identified as a strength in our annual internal reviews. The simulation program is undergoing changes to its curriculum with increased resident involvement and participation. Our residency program is always striving toward excellence, and the resident group is an integral part of this process.
The resident webpage site is designed with the intention of providing a commonplace for sharing academic resources, program information, and links that are relevant to anesthesia residents at all levels of their training. Contents of the site will be continually updated with relevant articles, practice guidelines, and notices for upcoming academic events. Specific information pertaining to the residency program, such as schedules, academic core teaching programs and archived presentations, and reference materials, can be accessed at the password-protected link to MedPortal
. Contents of the MedPortal site are meant to be available for McMaster anesthesia residents only.
