  • Tertiary care and Level 1 trauma centre
  • Much of the first 2 years are spent here
  • Academic hospital for the Faculty of Medicine Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programs
  • A new Acute Care Surgery Service and a call format which lets sub-specialty surgery residents have very limited call
  • Great training opportunities but as with any large institution the bureaucracy can seem overwhelming at times
  • Known by surgery residents as the “mothership”
