Biotechnology is essentially what allows researchers to find the good traits in one organism and incorporate them in another. It is one of the world's fastest growing industries and Hamilton is poised for growth in the sector because of the existing assets including McMaster University, hospitals, research centres, and talented researchers and because of the unique research being undertaken here. In fact, the City is already in the emerging stages of the Health & Biotechnology Sector's development and on-going research will continue to attract investment to the community. Along with the investments there are benefits which include high paying jobs for researchers and technical staff; spin-off companies which generate new employment and assessment growth; and a high profile for the community that draws in multi-national companies.
McMaster is a full-service university. With well-established strengths in health care, engineering, business,social sciences, science, and humanities research and education, the University offers both students and professors exciting and unique opportunities for research, education, and collaboration.
The Faculty of Health Sciences is known world-wide for its innovative small group, problem-based learning. Within our Faculty of Health Sciences are several state-of-the-art programs including schools of medicine, nursing, and rehabilitation science, a midwifery program and a unique pre-professional undergraduate Bachelor of Health Sciences program. Interlinked with these schools are Master's and PhD level training programs and numerous residency programs for both family physicians and specialists. Our Faculty strives to maintain the "cutting edge" in educational innovations. Our goal is to implement a problem-based learning continuum that begins the day the students enter our professional schools and continues long after they graduate. One method to achieve this goal is the creation of an electronic problem-based learning (e PBL) system.
Established in 1887, McMaster is one of Canada's top research-intensive universities. Maintaining the reputation as a top research institution is another priority of the Faculty. By enhancing links with our hospital and government partners, we will ensure that we accelerate the rate at which we are able to move discoveries out of the laboratories and incorporate them into practice of health care professionals. Ultimately, patient care is enhanced and better access to medical breakthroughs will benefit the people of Hamilton and beyond.
The Faculty's present education and research priorities are:
The Hamilton Incubator of Technology is a modern 40,000 square foot, fibre optic equipped facility funded and operated by the City of Hamilton. HIT's mission is to have a positive impact on the City of Hamilton's economic development by maximizing the success of emerging companies.
