The province is injecting $1.66 million into McMaster University’s medical school to increase hands-on instruction.

The funds, coming from the Open Ontario Plan and announced last week, will go toward training 579 medical students in community health centres, mock patient visits and at simulation centres. The funding will also be used to improve faculty teaching skills and to recruit more community-based instructors.

The funding for McMaster is one of five grants in southern Ontario. The province says it will have created 260 new first-year medical school spaces, which is a 38 per cent increase since 2004-2005.

“By investing in our medical schools today, we’re helping to ensure that our community will have the well-trained doctors we need for the future. We want to make sure Ontarians have access to the best doctors in the world, “ said MPP Ted McMeekin in a press release.
