|Description||The McMaster Family Practice physicians operate as a Family Health Organization (FHO). We are a designated Family Health Team (FHT) which allows us to provide enhanced patient care from other, non-physician health care clinicians. |
The recently renovated West End Clinic and cares for patients from Hamilton, Burlington and suburbs including Dundas, Ancaster and Stoney Creek. The clinic is associated with Hamilton Health Sciences and all staff physicians have active staff privileges at HHS and at St. Joseph's Healthcare.
The unit consists of seven practices organized into two teams. Each team includes staff physicians, nurse practitioners and residents. There are usually eighteen residents home-based with six or so being full-time during any one period. Residents carry their own practice within the seven teams, while gaining experience in team care and support.
