The Royal College Emergency Medicine training program at McMaster University strives to educate physicians who wish to pursue an academic career in Emergency Medicine. It is a five year integrated programme involving the Hospitals in the City of Hamilton. The Hospitals are organized such that there are regional programs which concentrate specialized facilities at specific locations, such as Burn/Trauma at the Hamilton General Hospital, Oncology at the Henderson General Hospital, Paediatrics at McMaster Hospital, and Emergency Psychiatry at St. Joseph's Hospital. As well these institutions offer Emergency Departments with a high patient volume supported by comprehensive Medical and Surgical services. This will expose the resident to a wide range of patient problems, as well specific focus in different rotations.

Upon completion of the residency program, the resident is expected to demonstrate consultant level abilities in the recognition, understanding, and treatment of illness and injuries presenting to the Emergency Department. These individuals, as part of a commitment to a career in Emergency Medicine, would be expected to enhance the provision of emergency health services, and be involved in research development and education.
