Founded in 1887, McMaster University is one of only five Canadian universities (and one of only two in Ontario) consistently ranked among the top 100 in the world by the major worldwide ranking systems. A medical-doctoral, research-intensive university, McMaster is dedicated to teaching, education and service. In the 1960s, we pioneered the problem-based approach to education that came to be known around the world as “the McMaster model”.
