A Community Teaching Hospital: As one of Canada’s leading community hospitals, the organization is comprised of three main sites that serve a population of over one million residents in Mississauga, south Etobicoke and the surrounding region.

The Mississauga Hospital site hosts the regional centers for Stroke, Neurosurgery and Cardiac Services. Trillium Health Partners is also home of one of the busiest Emergency services in Canada, a model ambulatory care centre and the largest free-standing day surgery facility in North America.

The Credit Valley Site features the Carlo Fidani Peel Regional Cancer Centre which serves a catchment area of 1.6 million people. CVH is also home to a regional maternal child care program and nephrology program.

Program Highlights:

The program offers a large range of clinical rotations, taught by highly-trained pharmacists, across all 3 of our sites with the goal of developing the next generation of health professionals; supporting team-based learning; setting a new standard of excellence in health care leadership; and, supporting continuous growth, learning, mentoring and development.  Residents have the opportunity to have direct positive interactions with primary health care practitioners, often acting as the link between nursing, attending physicians and patients. The program places a large emphasis on developing a strong therapeutic thought process and clinical skills that residents can apply in their future careers.
