The TMC environment provides exceptional training opportunities, with access to a large number of consultants representing virtually every subspecialty. These are subspecialists our residents will be able to consult with for years, even after they graduate. Faculty in the TMC are actively engaged in medical research, not only providing, but defining the latest information in their fields. Many daily or weekly lectures and conferences with material relevant to family physicians are offered throughout the TMC.
