 Overview of the Faculty
The development of health professional education at McMaster University began in 1946 when the School of Nursing was established in the University's Faculty of Science.
Under the leadership of founding Dean John Evans, a group of reform-minded educators began developing an undergraduate medical program and a philosophy of health sciences education that departed radically from the prevailing North American norm.
Further development occurred in the mid-1960s when, persuaded by then University President Harry Thode's long-standing vision that McMaster should start a new kind of medical school and by the enthusiastic support of the Hamilton community, the Ontario Government awarded a medical education program to McMaster.

Pulmonary angiography or helical CT may be considered if the clinical assessment of pulmonary embolism probability is low, particularly if a D-dimer test has not been done [4].
If a very sensitive D-dimer assay is used, it can be the first test performed: a negative result excludes pulmonary embolism regardless of clinical assessment category and a positive test can be followed by a ventilation–perfusion scan [2].
