The Department of Anesthesia at McMaster University presents the historical development of the specialty of anesthesia with specific focus on the progress of professionals, administration, research, education, and clinical services in the Hamilton region.
While additional focus is placed upon the formulation of the academic Department of Anesthesia following the opening of the McMaster University Medical Centre (MUMC) in 1972, the historical account intends to recollect the advancement in relation to the medical community as a whole. The history documented here aims to outline the Department of Anesthesia as cultivating and expanding amongst diverse medical organizations and the history of health care in the Hamilton region.
