eHealth in the GTHA
Reasons to choose McMaster’s eHealth MSc program…
McMaster is situated in the heart of Hamilton, Ontario, a 45-minute drive from Toronto.
This region, known as the Greater Toronto & Hamilton Area (GTHA), is the most densely populated corridor of economic activity in Canada. Hamilton is perfectly positioned in the region as a hub of innovation in healthcare. The city has a vibrant arts, culture, and culinary scene coupled with numerous outdoor attractions and activities. Most people are unaware that Hamilton is the Waterfall Capital of the World with over one hundred waterfalls just minutes from downtown.
As one of Canada’s most diverse areas, Hamilton is the country’s ninth largest regional economy, and the fastest growing economy in the province of Ontario. Employment prospects are strong for skilled, well-educated workers, particularly in expanding technology fields like digital health and health informatics.
Prospects for internships are well supported by the Hamilton Health Sciences network, the brand new McMaster Health Campus, and the sizeable healthcare and health sciences networks in Toronto and surrounding areas. Your options aren’t confined to this region, however. Many students find internships in their hometowns, provinces, and further afield.
