CMAS's telehealth program encompasses telementoring and telerobotics for the provision of training and clinical services within remote areas of Canada. These initiatives build on the expertise of our faculty and the technological facilities here at our Centre, and at the same time expand our role on the horizons of health research, education and delivery.

CMAS has performed 22 telerobotic cases with North Bay General Hospital and over 35 telementoring cases with North Bay General Hospital, Ontario and the Complexe Hospitalier La Sagamie, Quebec. The expansion of the telehealth initiative now includes centres in Northern Ontario, the North West Territories and the Yukon.

CMAS has also provide onsite training for 37 cases and telementoring for 10 cases to 6 surgeons in St. Catherine's, Sarnia, and Thunder Bay.
