The Niagara Regional Campus was planned for students who wish to learn and experience medicine with the benefit of a regional campus setting. The academic portion of the program is delivered at the campus located within the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. The campus amenities include two clinical skills rooms with an observation space; three tutorial classrooms, a computer laboratory, a lecture hall, and an anatomy lab. All rooms are equipped with the state-of-the-art technology, allowing full interaction between all three campuses. Additional classroom and clinical skills space is located at the Niagara Health System (NHS) hospital sites. Practical hospital experience occurs at the seven sites in the Niagara region and is taught by exceptional local physicians. The hospital sites are located within a 25 minute drive of the campus. Clinical placements are provided in out-patient clinics, private offices in various specialties, the Public Health Unit, the Niagara Health System sites, Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre, and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Grimsby.
The curriculum delivered at the Niagara Regional Campus is equivalent at all three of McMaster’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine campuses with the benefit of smaller class sizes in Niagara leading to a more personalized learning experience.
The campus is located in a prominent city that is experiencing high economic growth from public and private investments in recreation, culture, traditional infrastructure, manufacturing, and commercial and residential development. It’s a great time for a student to be in Niagara! Find out more about what it`s like to be a student at the Niagara Regional Campus below.
