Student Placements

Michael Garron Hospital is committed to providing a high quality community hospital learning environment for students and residents.

As a full-service community teaching hospital, Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) offers great breadth and quality of services and programs in a generalist community setting and is committed to an interprofessional model of care delivery.

Observations from students and residents about MGH's learning environment:

  • Friendly and welcoming.
  • Diversity of patient population, health issues and learning experiences ("immigrant health, inner city health as well as the nearby Beach and Danforth neighbourhoods with many young families").
  • Technologically advanced including videoconferencing, an electronic patient record and extensive online resources.
  • Dedicated and knowledgeable supervisors/preceptors ("all were interested in teaching and interested in having me learn").
  • Considerable one-on-one, hands-on teaching.
