COVID-19: For learners choosing 'housing' as a funding option, a reminder from the Department of Family Medicine (DFM): Any arrangements for additional guests should be negotiated directly with the landlord. Also, in an effort to reduce the risk of cross-contamination between communities, DFM asks that learners remain in the rural community without travel back to home base.

Please read the following to ensure you meet all criteria before submitting an online Mac-CARE funding registration:

  • In order to receive Mac-CARE funding, registration submissions MUST be submitted on or before the rotation start date. No exceptions.
  • Only eligible McMaster Funded/Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) funded UGME Clerks and PGME Residents are able to register. Please use Eligibility Tool to determine eligibility.

  • The online funding registration does not replace the UG/PG clinical placement processes. If you are a resident, please ensure that the McMaster PGME Placement Application has been submitted by either yourself or your Program Assistant.

  • Please ensure that your clinical placement (core or elective rotation) is noted in its entirety in MedSIS. If the details of your submitted rotation do not appear in MedSIS, your funding registration cannot be confirmed/approved. Please contact your program to add/edit MedSIS clinical placement information.

  • If registrations are submitted with falsified information, you will be cited for professionalism with your program.
