HPH's major affiliation is with McMaster University as a clinical teaching unit specialized in training in psychiatry, psychology, nursing, occupational and physical therapy, and social work. Teaching facilities like Mohawk College and other community colleges and universities in central west Ontario also have affiliation agreements with HPH for training of health professionals in disciplines such as recreation therapy, pastoral care, pharmacy, vocational counseling and music therapy.
