The McMaster Family Health Team

We are an Academic Family Health Team affiliated with the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University. The MFHT trains medical clerks and residents in Family Medicine, as well as other healthcare professionals, providing primary care services and conducting research in the field of family medicine. We have 2 sites that include the Stonechurch Family Health Centre on the south mountain in Hamilton, and McMaster Family Practice & Maternity Centre of Hamilton, co-located in downtown Hamilton.  Together these practices serve over 40,000 patients from the Greater Hamilton Area.

Creative– We practice creative and courageous inquiry and action

Generous – We engage one another with generous interdependence


COVID-19 Vaccine

You may hear about Hamilton receiving some doses of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) vaccine in the coming weeks, but these doses will be provided to our most vulnerable populations first, such as staff and residents in  long-term care.  We do not know when the COVID-19 vaccine will be available for us to provide to our patients at McMaster Family Practice and Stonechurch Family Health Centre.  We expect it will be in late spring 2021 and will update our website and social media accounts as more information becomes available.

Some helpful information regarding the vaccine is found at the following websites:
