The Clinic @ Mac, The Clinic @ Joe's, and The Clinic @ DeGroote


The Clinic is McMaster University's home for health innovation. Its network, The Clinic @ Mac, The Clinic @ Joe's, and The Clinic @ DeGroote, brings together students, staff, faculty, and entrepreneurs to explore ideas with the potential to change the face of healthcare.

The pillars of The Clinic are Education @ The Clinic and Residency @ The Clinic.

The Clinic network was made possible through the generosity of Mary and Marnix Heersink and their family.
With their support, we have created a unique learning experience for emerging health innovators.
