Program Highlights:


We envision a new kind of health care for a healthier community – an inter-connected system of care that is organized around the patient, both inside the hospital and beyond its walls. Through partnership, working in a coordinated way across the system, we can meet the needs of our patients and continue to provide outstanding, sustainable quality patient care.

As one of Canada’s leading community hospitals, the organization is comprised of four main sites: Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga Hospital, Queensway Health Centre, and Reactivation Care Centre. The Mississauga Hospital hosts highly-specialized regional programs in; advanced cardiac surgery, geriatric mental health services, neurosurgery, palliative care, primary percutaneous coronary intervention, specialized geriatric services, stroke, and vascular services. The Credit Valley Hospital features the Carlo Fidani Peel Regional Cancer Centre which serves a catchment area of 1.6 million people. CVH is also a regional leader in specialized programs for maternal-child care, clinical genetics, and nephrology.  Its regional women’s and children’s health center features an advanced level 2 neonatal ICU and the largest paediatric oncology satellite program in Ontario outside of the Hospital for Sick Children. Queensway Health Centre features a 14-hour Urgent Care Centre, the largest day surgery centre in North America, a widely-recognized Cardiac Wellness & Rehabilitation Centre, the first comprehensive spine centre of its kind in Canada, and The Betty Wallace Women's Health Centre with a focus on early intervention and screening of osteoporosis and breast disease. Reactivation Care Centre focuses on reintegrating individuals who no longer need acute medical care back into the community. The specialized team can support patients’ care plan goals while providing more social engagement and recreational therapies.


  • The program provides the resident with a direct, positive interaction with health care practitioners and an opportunity to be the primary link between nursing, attending physicians and patients.
  • Through creative and innovative projects, the resident can directly impact patient care and has the opportunity to be a trendsetter.
  • The resident will learn from well-trained pharmacists who understand the requirements in providing the complete residency experience and take pride in teaching.  Our staff includes numerous residency trained and PharmD graduate pharmacists who participate actively in teaching in the PharmD programs at the Faculty of Pharmacies in Ontario and the Faculty of Medicine at UTM.
