McMaster Demystifying Medicine Seminar Series

McMaster Demystifying Medicine Program

The McMaster Demystifying Medicine Seminar Series started in January 2012. It includes presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis and therapy in the context of major disease problems and current research. This translational seminar series is designed to help increase the understanding of how advances in biology can be applied to human disease. It is directed towards undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and researchers, medical students and clinicians. It is open for the public. Each session includes clinical and basic science components presented by McMaster clinicians and researchers. These seminars are accredited for CME.

In 2013, we started an undergraduate course (HTS 4DM3) in Knowledge Translation and Communication that is associated with the McMaster Demystifying Medicine Seminar Series. Please click here to learn more about this course.
