The catchment area of the department's teaching hospitals includes approximately 1.5 million people:
- all of Manitoba
- parts of northwestern Ontario
- parts of Saskatchewan
- Northwest Territories
This may be one of the things that sets us most apart from other places; it's mentioned in several subspecialty pages. I think we should centralize and own this description and make it great again ;-)
The large catchment guarantees an extensive patient pool for researchers, and that residents receive a variety of clinical experience from a diverse patient population.
