General Internal Medicine


Greater Niagara General Site


The Department of Medicine at Niagara Health seeks highly motivated physicians with a passion for providing the highest quality care to join the department.  This is a fully integrated and hospital-based program with diverse experiences ranging from acute inpatient management to assessment of urgent outpatient referrals in our Acute Internal Medicine Clinic (AIM Clinic).

Niagara Health is a regional healthcare provider with multiple sites and a growing network of community-based services. Our team is made up of more than 4,800 employees, 600 physicians and 850 volunteers who we count on to deliver extraordinary caring to every person, every time.

We provide a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services to more than 450,000 residents across Niagara, including Acute Care, Cancer Care, Cardiac Care, Complex Care, Emergency and Urgent Care, Kidney Care, Long-Term Care, Mental Health and Addictions, Stroke Care and Surgical Care.

Our Accreditation with Exemplary Standing is a clear demonstration of our team’s commitment to the highest safety and quality standards. As a community-based academic centre, teaching and learning, research, innovation and partnership are propelling us as we imagine a healthier Niagara.

The transformation of healthcare service delivery across Niagara continues with planning underway to build an additional ultramodern hospital in South Niagara to provide accessible and quality healthcare to residents of the Southern Region.  Niagara Health is positioned, by virtue of its geography and regionally distributed resources, to exemplify the best of regional capacity with local service delivery.  Strong academic partnerships are a priority for the NH as the organization builds on a robust relationship with McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine.

Academic Affiliations:

Since its founding in 1966, innovation has been the hallmark of McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine and a major contributor to its international reputation for excellence.

The medical school has expanded to a regional campus in Niagara, which is located at Brock University. Students at the Niagara Regional Campus complete their clinical rotations in one of the six area hospitals with teaching done by the highly skilled and motivated hospital physicians.

Opportunities for strengthening and building strong academic partnerships are a priority for the NHS as the hospital has expanded into this new facility. We are interested in physicians who will pursue a university faculty appointment and participate in academic activities within a strong regional community hospital setting.

In addition to McMaster, Niagara Health is building strong ties with other regional academic providers such as Brock University and Niagara College.
